Newsletter possibly returning, but different this time around

I've been doing RFM for a little while now, but I've been feeling the itch to get back into publishing a newsletter. There are a few problems with this however.

Starting (or in my case restarting) a newsletter from zero is a total pain in the ass because building a subscriber list is not easy. In order to get my sub list to even a small number like 100, I'd have to spam the crap out of people just to sign up for it and that is something I simply will not do.

After thinking about it, I realized there is something I can use to post a newsletter.

Google Plus.

Yeah, I know, this is a bit of a weird idea, but it is something I would feel would work out a whole lot better, and here's why:

G+ is much more accommodating to long-form posts

On G+ you can format stuff just like a newsletter or blog article would be formatted. I like that a lot.

I don't have to force anyone to subscribe just to read it

Whether subbed or not, you can read anything I post there.

It's very, very mobile-friendly

G+ was designed from the ground up to be mobile-friendly, and I consider that important.

My YouTube subscribers already all have G+ accounts

Authoring a newsletter on G+ makes it stupidly easy for them to follow me there since they already all have Google Accounts along with G+ profiles.

It finally gives me a reason to use G+

I'm actually glad to find a reason to use G+. Even though the system only commands 2% of all social sharing on the internet, Goog is committed to make it work, so maybe in a year or so it will creep up to 5% or maybe even 10%. Maybe more. Who knows.

I'm actually going to try and put this whole thing in G+ just to see how the formatting works out. Hopefully it will appear mostly the same as it does here.
