Newsletter's are part of forming an online relationship with your readers. Even if have only a couple of subscribers. Everyone one of those subscribers has signed up because they're interested in you and what you do.
Some bloggers write a regular newsletter's every week, others prefer once a month, or when they have a new product, or book to sell.
