Blog News: Changes to Email Subscriptions for Posts and Comments

blogging

As I previously mentioned, I am moving the email subscription service from Mailchimp to WordPress Jetpack. Some of you have already noticed the change and acted accordingly. Here’s what you need to know:

Daily Posts

  • Previously, posts were received in a digest form. I will leave this service operational for a week or so until everyone who wants to switches to the new service. Going forward, subscribers will receive an email every time a new post is published.
  • You can either subscribe by clicking the box the says Notify me of new posts via email. at the bottom of the comment section, or imputing your email address on the subscription form on the right side of the front page.
  • You can also read new posts via RSS feed (link requires feed reader). You will need a feed reader to read the comments. Feedly is a good option. If you are an iPad/iPhone user, Newsify is an excellent RSS feed reader.
  • Every new post will have links at the bottom you can click to either manage your subscription or unsubscribe. If you have any questions or have trouble subscribing/unsubscribing, please let me know.

Comments

  • Previously, readers could subscribe to comments without commenting. Going forward, that will no longer be the case.
  • When leaving a comment, you may receive notification of new comments by clicking the box that says, Notify me of new comments via email.
  • You can also read new comments via RSS feed (link requires feed reader). You will need a feed reader to read the comments. Feedly is a good option. If you are an iPad/iPhone user, Newsify is an excellent RSS feed reader.
  • The comment editing function will remain the same.
  • Every new comment email will have links at the bottom you can click to either manage your subscription or unsubscribe. If you have any questions or have trouble subscribing/unsubscribing, please let me know.
