Seems like most developers could find a generic blog with tags and categories and plug it in fairly easily. The current WA blog is completely unusable. I wonder what the problem is...

Easy integration with a fully powered autoresponder (MailChimp, aWeber, etc.) seems like 101 for most sites. As many things as I like about WA, I can't quite figure out why this one is so hard for them. The whole game for me is getting new members educated on how to use the site and on the value, so that they will convert to paying, long-term members. The best way to do this is a series of 10-15 emails over the first 60 days, each with a different highlight. That must be "triggered" upon sign-up or it's impossible to keep track of. I can put a sign up link in the welcome email from WA, but as we all know, every extra step takes a toll in response rates.
