Update: Blog and Course Mailing Lists

Because of recent changes on Udemy, I have decided to start my own mailing lists for both my training course and my blog.

Needless to say, this is quite frustrating for instructors such as myself who cannot afford to price our courses so low. But we seem to only have two options: either allow our courses to be capped at $50 or disable (unpublish) them from the Udemy platform.
