Nothing says *love* quite like a highly produced network reality series where 25+ women duke it out for the chance to maybe get married to one lucky dude, or in the case of this season of The Bachelor, one lucky pilot. Perhaps the only love greater than that between Pilot Pete and whoever the heck he decides to pick at the end of this season, is my love of intellectualizing and overstating the cultural importance of The Bachelor (something I’ve been known to do in SparkPost’s internal #bachelor-nation slack channel), but enough about me!
Over the franchise’s collective 44 seasons (including spin-offs), Bachelor Nation has seen an overwhelming increase in the amount of contestants that go on to become some of the most prolific social media influencers in the world! In honor of the most romantic show of our time and of course Valentine’s Day, we wanted to hand out a few roses to some of our favorite email influencers out there! While they may not have as many followers as Ashley I or Hannah B, these certified #emailgeeks have won our hearts with their amazing social media accounts!
Check out which Email Influencers we’re giving our roses to this Valentine’s Day:
Responsive Email Developer and Founder of Emails Y’all, Anne Tomlin, kills us every time with her pop-culturally relevant knee slappers.
So you're some tough code
Like to make it rough code
Just can't get enough code
<td> always so puffed code
I'm that bad type
Make your font monotype
Make your <table> mad tight
Might render Outlook type
I'm the bad dev.

Founder of Fix My Churn and self-proclaimed “queen of onboarding tear downs”, Val Geisler, sparks conversation and engagement with her open-ended tweets.
I keep getting this nagging feeling that I'm going to spend the summer writing a book. Problem is… I don't know what the book is about!
If you could read a book written by me, what would it be about?
