In this article, I will explain the benefits of adding a newsletter to your blog, and how to enable Hashnode's free in-app newsletter feature on your blog.

I feel reluctant putting on the newsletter feature because I feel people won't signup and is my article good enough.

But what the worst that could happen right 😁. Putting on the feature now 😊
