Do any of you have a plugin recommendation for a pop up that can contain my mailchimp code and be customized in look?
There's a ton out there, but I'd love to hear if any have worked well for you with Studiopress.
You will probably get lots of opinions, but I really like Pippity (http://pippity.com/). The pop-ups are very well-designed and you can even set options for when they appear, on what posts, etc.
Please don't do a popup. Please, please, please? If I'm coming to your site from a link to read an article, and a popup for your newsletter gets between me and the article I haven't even read yet, that's way too soon for me to know if I'm ready to subscribe. And even if you set the timing so it pops up on the third article I read, you're still getting between the reader and your content. When I'm the reader, I find that incredibly annoying - it really hurts the user experience.
(Admittedly, I have a little problem with reading - I love it - and every site should have a popup that says, "Quit reading and start working!")
I would really rather see you put your MailChimp form at the top right of every page - either in the header widget or the top of the right-hand sidebar. Maybe also add a simple version of it to the bottom of every post.
Just, please, not a popup, or a modal. Pretty please?
Sharing the good news about the wonders of web typography and the split-step. Either one should get you moving fast. 😉
