Adding push notifications to my blog, bad idea?

I recently started a small personal finance blog, mainly writing stuff related to people in my country, and the only thing that keeps me motivated is someone reads them, so I don’t feel like I’m writing to ghost, this lead me to look for some solution for readers retention.

I have setup a newsletter with MailPoet and have it send a new post notification via email, but I’m also thinking if I should add push notifications with OneSignal, not sure if this would ruin the experience of my blog, making it look spammy, because it seems like a spammy blog that filled with tons of paid post paid ads send 10 20s push notification a day if you accidentally click the allow notification button.

Should I add push notifications for my blog or just stick with the newsletter alone?

  1. Just stick with the newsletter. It’d take an immense amount of trust for someone to want to receive push notifications.
