Hey there. Long time no see. How have you been? 

We’ve been working hard for these past couple of months and are really due to update you all.

Here’s what we have in store for you.

Email Management


Now you can filter through your subscribers and create segmented mailing lists.

For example, if a new subscriber matches a certain filter, they’d be automatically included in your corresponding list, even if they signed up after you’d made the list. 

Here’s how it works. 

Say, you want to send an email to anyone matching the following criteria:

  1. everyone subscribed last month and is paid
  2. everyone who has opened at least 5 emails in a time period to ask them to refer a friend 

You can just select one or more segments to send a newsletter or email campaign to. 

This is more of an advanced tool so please do let us know if you have any feedback on its usability! 

Unsubscribed: who, where, and how

The unsubscribed dashboard now tells you why and where people unsubbed from:

  1. email hard bounced and unreachable
  2. they read a post and unsubbed from the footer of the email (shows the specific post)  
  3. they unsubbed from their dashboard manually 
  4. you force unsubbed them



Now you can see how engaged your readers are with your emails over time!

If you select 30 or 90 day periods, the left bar shows you the previous period and the right bar shows you the current period. So in this case, highly engaged readers went up from 146 to 180 in the past 30 days vs the 30 days before that

HTML Embeds  

Insert a Typeform, Google Map, interactive D3.js widgets, or anything you want in your posts, to make them more interactive! 

Here’s how a Google Map may look in your post. 

Comment Moderation

We now support comments from logged out users!

And if someone is misbehaving, just delete the unwanted comments.

You can now control which readers can comment on your posts. 


Further Customization

Customize your post’s URLs


Set up a custom subscribe Call To Action 

So it can go from this 


To this


Customize the login screen (custom domain feature)

Now you can create your own personalized login screen if you’re on a plan with a custom domain! If you choose to do so, people won’t even be able to tell you’re using Letterdrop anymore. 

We want to give you the ability to put your brand first.


Right to left scripts

We’ve also launched early RTL support for anyone writing in Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu, Persian, etc!  

Email is now added to share options


Easier payments

Now if you’re on a paid plan there are no manual invoices needed anymore!

Search through posts 

Now you can search through your publications. Just click on the magnifying glass on the top right.
