Awesome! I use (and really enjoy) Buttondown (buttondown.email). You can write posts with markdown and you get the first 1000 subscribers for free.

Do you think there's a point where paying for the mailing list will not become worth it? e.g. if you managed to hit 20k and you were paying $100 a month.

Yes, there's probably a point where I'd start exploring other services if this didn't scale well. If my mailing list does get to that level of popularity, I'd probably also try to monetize somehow to offset the cost.
