Hey now allows users create newsletters and blogs right from their emails

Hey, an alternative email provider, is expanding its offering with a new email newsletter and blog service called Hey World. The service is being offered as a free addition to all personal Hey subscribers, Hey announced on Thursday.

To use the service is very simple: Hey users simply need to send an email to world@hey.com. The subject of that email then becomes the post’s headline, while the body text is the blog post itself.Once you’ve sent the first email, Hey will automatically create a blog for you, at “world.hey.com/yourusername,” which collects all of your posts and offers both an RSS feed and an email subscription box for followers to keep up with your latest missives.

Hey co-founder Jason Fried explains that the feature was borne out of a desire for a place to share thoughts online in a longer-form context than a short Twitter post or tweetstorm, without the contentious public square of a place like Twitter.

Hey World blogs are available now for paying Hey subscribers with personal accounts; users on business accounts or with free trials aren’t eligible for the new feature.
