If you've been around the block for a while as a blogger, odds are good you've heard the expression that your mailing list is one of the few things you can truly own.
We fully believe this, and put in a great deal of effort to get the max out of our newsletters each and every week.
Over the years, we've found ourselves becoming big fans of the newsletter service, Mailerlite, as it is quite powerful, has many tools we personally love, and comes in at a respectable price point compared to the competition.
So to help you get more out of your newsletter, we reached out to Martyna from Mailerlite to talk about the service and she shares some great newsletter tips and tricks for you to consider in this one!

If you've spent any amount of time on blogging social media groups, you've likely seen a couple of topics come up time and time again.
The first, and more common post, is “[website] stole my photos without credit!” and the second is “I was just sent an invoice for copyright infringement for a 3rd party photo I used on my blog”.
While you have many avenues for recourse if your own content has been stolen (including invoicing for damages or sending a DMCA notice), if you are the perpetrator of an infringement you may have fewer options at your disposal. Stealing is bad, and we have little more to say on that.
That being said, the advice of “don't steal” only goes so far. To be blunt, many scams exist online to screw over website operators, and if you use 3rd party content in any capacity, there may be scenarios where you can become a victim despite doing everything “right”.
So in this one, we thought we'd talk a bit more about how you can go about using 3rd party content, namely stock images, and keep yourself safe from possible lawsuits later on. While we cannot say these tips are 100% foolproof, especially as we are not lawyers and copyright laws also vary by country, these tips should give you an added layer of protection all the same.

It's no secret that we're fans of MailerLite.
I mean, we run This Week in Blogging on that email marketing service, so it'd be awfully strange if we weren't big fans of it.
A little while back, we put together a MailerLite review which focused on how MailerLite is a powerful email marketing engine that's available for content creators at a very reasonable price. We also looked at MailerLite vs. Mailchimp, as which newsletter service was better was a question that was often asked of us.
In both articles, we talk about some of what makes MailerLite our personal favourite email service provider, but we thought it'd be worth dedicating an article to some of the features (both well known and lesser known) that we think makes MailerLite the best value email marketing service out there.

Raise your hand if you received a spam email today.
Okay, fine, that was a bit of a loaded question. Perhaps the better way to phrase it would be raise your hand if you didn't receive 100 spam emails today.
One of the unfortunate downsides to operating online is that our email accounts are tied to just about everything we do. This makes privacy a bit tricky because many unscrupulous marketers will try every trick in the book to ensure their message reaches your inbox.
So in this one, we thought we'd share a few tips that you can integrate into your business to help minimize the spam emails you see, and, for those emails you can't quite ever get away from, a few ways to recognize they're spam immediately!

In This Week in Blogging's newsletter, we write about all sorts of things that we feel might help the blogging community. That's ultimately why we run in the first place.
But, when we're not talking about blogging habits to prioritize, or blogging activities to get the year kicked off right, we love to have a little fun and post articles like this, which cover the best blogging quotes around.
Below, we review the best quotes around starting a blog, our favourite blogging quotes around running a site/brand, some motivational quotes that can apply to bloggers, and a few humorous quotes as well.
