I’ve signed up for mailing lists before which were nothing more than the owner sending spam emails into the void, never responding to their readers, and I vowed that I would never run that kind of site.  I endeavor to personally engage every single one of my readers and to do whatever I can to aid you on your chess journey.  Whenever possible, I answer questions, provide advice, and ask for feedback from my readers – free of charge.
