New Feature: Email Subscription

As you may have noticed, I’ve been making some changes to the blog; the design, (LinkWithin) post icons at the bottom of each post and now this, Email Subscription.

My fellow BLM, Franchesca over at Small Bird Studios (a blog that I follow) is running a series titled “Things that will make your blog AWESOME” and I’ve been implementing some of her ideas. Franchesca is an amazing graphic designer who shares all of these ideas for free. She does tons more stuff so check her out!

I thought that email subscription would be a great way for some of you to stay in touch but not have to remember to go to the website (hey, we all get busy). If it doesn’t work for you or you just like it the way it is, don’t subscribe and just keep doing what you’re doing.

If you’re interested, in the right hand column (underneath Artemis’ picture), enter your email address in the “Follow by Email” box and click “Submit”. You will be required to enter random letters (to ensure that you’re not a computer program) and then a confirmation email will be sent to the email account that you entered. Go to the email, click the link provided and you’re all set-up. You will now receive an email when I post to the blog.

Note #1. Your email address will not be shared with anyone.
Note #2. If you don’t want to receive the emails any longer, select the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email and that’s it. Seriously, it’s that simple. You and your email address will not be taken hostage.
Note #3. The email displays a generic version of my post. It does not take you to the ACTUAL web site. If you want to see that, you can select the title link. Or, just go to the website via your bookmark (because we all know that you have it bookmarked!).
Note #4. Remember, you can always subscribe, see what it looks like and then unsubscribe if you don’t like it. Either way, it doesn’t matter to me.

Let me know if you have any questions.
