I don't expect I'll get help getting a date here, so I won't bother asking for help with that.
Instead, I want to know what the general consensus is on putting this on your site: Everyone says build a list, so I signed up for a Mailchimp account the other day and started adding list signups in the sidebar on my sites. Today I had a little more time and started playing with the options in Mailchimp and found out that I can make this little window "popup" in the middle of the screen after X seconds asking the user to signup. It's not a true popup that most browsers block; it's the popup that darkens the rest of the site and doesn't let you do anything until you a) sign up or b) close the popup.
It seems like a really good idea to get more subscribers, so I implemented it on one of my sites. Does anyone else have any experience using this technique, and, if so, any success?
Thanks in advance!
