About Nate Hoffelder (11089 Articles)

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:

“I’ve been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It’s a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog.”

  1. Awesome coffee this morning! Thanks for sharing my post about the scourge of the popup. I had a Web Designer drop by who has the math that proves popups lose business for small and mid-sized companies. Gill Andrews. I put a link to her data in the post. She’s very enlightening. Thanks much for the shoutout!

  2. Armed with this information, will The Digital Reader finally kill those “Got WordPress” and “Join Our Daily Newsletter” popups on its own website?

    • I have to think about it.

      My current take is that it really comes down to what I plan to do with the newsletters. I don’t plan to do anything with the blog newsletter, but I do hope to (eventually) pitch my services on the WP newsletter.

      So it really makes no sense to push the one pop-up, but I might want to keep the other.
