Dynamic newsletter builder for collaborative blog

This newsletter builder started out as a Google Docs spreadsheet feeding into a custom script that built a valid HTML email template that worked great in popular email clients. Slowly, it evolved to use post information published by the main website (using Drupal) in a JSON format, eliminating the need to manually update the template every week. The template was built on-demand each time the page was loaded and the source could be viewed, copied, and pasted into our email marketing application, MailChimp. This saved an immense amount of time and made sure the most current content was being sent out.

If you've got something to say about the above, now is your time. I moderate for spam, relevance, and abuse but, aside from that, this is an open forum. I will not publish your email address but feel free to be anonymous. If you just have a general question or want to get in touch, my contact form is the best place for that. Thanks in advance!
