The subscription feature lets you inform your readers about the new content you have released.

Most blogging platforms offer that as a built-in feature, tho you can surely implement your own on your personal site too.

Do you use it in your blog/portfolio?

The fact is, most of us don't post regularly (and with good enough content) to convince people to subscribe. Most of the time the subscription feature is like those newsletter box on many corporates websites. Most people don't even want to get in that mailing list even if they are paid for that.

I write on Hashnode which has a built in mailing list and RSS feed - I am thinking of using something like MailChimp though.
