We just updated your BLOG feature so that you
can add categories to posts. This helps you
organize them, and lets you visitors see similar
posts with single click. We received many
requests for this feature from members switching

Not all fans will visit your website regularly. Having them sign up to your mailing list is the easiest way to keep them in the loop.
Rather than just asking for their addresses, why not give them an incentive to sign up? Here are a couple ways you could do this:
Give away a free MP3 to fans who sign up to your list This is easy to do, using the "thank you message" option in the mailing list. You can provide a link to a file directly (addresses can be found

Use CD giveaways to get addresses at gigs

them sign up to your mailing list (you do have a mailing list signup at your merch table, right?).
