Smashing Newsletter Challenge… And Giveaway!

Advertisement

It’s time for something brand new and exciting on Smashing Magazine. Actually, we have quite a few things in the works, and today we are happy to reveal one of them. Over the years, we have published many lengthy articles, and now we want to write some shorter ones for a change. We want to launch the Smashing Email Newsletter and we prepared some nice prizes for our subscribers.

Every week our editorial team will work on short, entertaining and (of course) relevant articles for the upcoming issue. The newsletter will be sent out once a week, probably on Tuesdays, and will contain unique tips and tricks for designers and Web developers, written by us exclusively for our email subscribers.

The 10,001 Subscriber Challenge

And to make it a bit more interesting, we decided to create a challenge for us and our readers. Here’s the deal: the Smashing Newsletter will be published only if we get at least 10,001 subscribers. (The earliest we would send it out is next Tuesday.) So, it’s up to you to decide whether we should launch the newsletter. And you can help right away: just type in your (valid) email address, confirm the subscription (opt in) and you’re done!

Subscribe to our email newsletter now:

 

If the form doesn’t work in your RSS-feed reader, please view the article in your web browser1. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Of course, you can cancel your subscription at any time. The Smashing Newsletter will always be free of charge. We respect your privacy: we will never give your data to third parties, and we will never spam you. You have our word.

Join In To Win One Of Our Prizes!

Of course, we knew it wouldn’t be as much fun without an incentive, which is why we are giving away some beautiful gadgets and books to some lucky subscribers. The winners will be announced in the first edition of the newsletter (if we meet the challenge). And here are the prizes:

Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch (Medium)2
The Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch is a unique device to harness your creativity. It’s perfect if you want complete control with a pen or finger tap input. It has single- and double-finger functions, supports left- and right-handed use and has an integrated pen holder.

Microsoft SideWinder X8 Laser Gaming Mouse3
The ultimate wireless gaming mouse, with advanced tracking, 12 buttons (7 of which are programmable), scroll wheel with tilt and full-speed USB reporting.

Mouse4

Harman Kardon SoundSticks II Speaker System5
The Harman Kardon SoundSticks II combines performance and an attractive visual design, a combination that always makes our hearts beat a little faster. It’s nearly perfect, save for a few design flaws.

Speaker System6

Microsoft Arc Mouse Black7
The Arc Mouse has the comfort of a desktop mouse and the portability of a notebook mouse. It folds to 60% of its fully expanded size for when you’re on the go. Two color options are available to match your style.

    “Smashing Magazine doesn’t have a newsletter. And we won’t have one in the future.” => wondering why you have that on http://www.smashingmagazine.com/before-sending-an-email-please-note/ ?

    Great initiative though. As always, your tips are mighty helpful. This can only get better.

    Hi Smashing. I suggest you do some testing on your email sender. Both the “plesae confirm” and the “subscription confirmed” were marked as spam by SpamAssassin. You really want to do everything you can to make sure that spam filters don’t think your messages are spam. There are a lot of useful web checklists, SPF guidelines, etc. that you can google that should help.

      redfoot, The Mobile version is a smaller HTML version that is run through specific mobile browsing software. This is what the mighty Mailchimp told us.

      • 90

        Hey Sven, I hope you get the chance to read this. Do you have to make a different design for the mobile version or is it the mighty Mailchimp’s job/code that makes it mobile-able? :D
        I’m just wondering as I love to ‘know’ :)

    I’m trying to get my mom, who was an illustartor in her early 20′s, into illustarting on the computer. She was just laid off from a crappy job at Carson Pirie Scott working in the home good department.

    Her fear of computers is great, hopefully something like that will bridge the gap!

    Also, can’t wait for the news letters! I still have to read the Smashing book, ive got a week off in June that’s got its name all over it

    Awesome idea guys, I think it will be a success, live data, live RSS feeds are great but they are not comparing to a weekly (or monthly?) mini magazine with round-up last-week-happenings maybe or quiz, best part is you can archive it easily.

    0
  126. 132

    Wonderful idea!
    I love to read your articles and often make reference to them to my students, so having a concise publication weekly will be fantastic. Oh and the prizes aren’t a bad incentive either!! Thanks :-)

    Guys at Smashing Magazine, your e-mail confirmation page for the subscription to your Newsletter looks like an error page, at least to me, that red background scared the LS out of me, and it made me feel like I just did something wrong, something that YOU actually made me do: click on the link in the e-mail to confirm my e-mail address.

    It actually reminded me of the red, scary, warning page Firefox displays when you visit a website that has been flagged as a phishing site (I think IE displays a red page too, right? lol).

    I nice green gradient image like the one used in the ‘Post Comment’ button here, would make us feel better :)

    Hope you get that fixed.

    I already subscribed too, looking forward to the Newsletter.

    Great idea, a newsletter so that I do not need to look for the latest and greatest every week. The only thing I would change is in this slick: link the Wacom prize to their site instead of the Apple Store so that their is no confusion with a PC user thinking it is only a Mac device

    I think we’re safe to say that it won’t be long before you guys reach your goal of 10001.
    So when can we expect the first issue?
    Thanks for all the work you do guys!

    Great idea! You’d reach 10, 001 subscribers even without extra incentive. I’m planning to run my own design blog, however, I’m smashing magazine shy from writing anything. Good luck with all your projects and thanks for being so valuable source of development.

    Happy to be a newsletter subscriber. I visit your site almost every day and the newsletter makes getting info a little more simpler. Kudos.

    Suggestion for this article… Do to SmashingMagazine’s usual article template I automatically thought the subscribe form was an image… even after I have read the article. It might be just me though… How about including a link or a modal window.

    Yes, have my copy of the book, also have subscribed – anything from smashing has got to be good – also already own an arc mouse (which I use with my macbook… it’s a good mouse).

    Look forward to reading more!

    When I first visited SM, I looked for email subscription link but didn’t find it. So subscribed for RSS.
    But now they have it and its really gonna be awesome!
    my opinion: If SM have asked for 20,001 subscriber challenge instead of 10,001; they would have made it. Definitely!!!
    Great LUCK..
    :)

    This is cool news, especialy after Smashing Magazine saying “Smashing Magazine doesn’t have a newsletter. And we won’t have one in the future.”

    Yep, check thier contact us page (if they haven’t removed it by now… :-) )

    Great!! I’m glad it’s not just a straight duplication of content. I like how the RSS and Twitter account have “some” content overlap but are different from each other

  238. 246

    Hope different from other newsletters too and will not have list of **21 awesome**, **43amazing** kinda list.

    Its my trust I am subscribing, Its my love I am demanding and Its my possessiveness that I am doubting. :)

    Good luck
