We are happy to announce a big change to the way we handle and process email subscriptions for our readers. As of today, we have completely switched to a new system and migrated away from two previous email subscription systems, which will hopefully alleviate all the frustrations our readers have had with our newsletters. While we have been relying on free email delivery services from Google and WordPress for the past few years, they have proven to be very limited in terms of delivery and customization options. One service in particular would send an email as soon as content was posted, so if we posted several articles within a short period of time, it would result in practical spamming of the mailboxes of our readers. Going forward, we will no longer have these issues, as emails will only be delivered once, no matter how many times we post content on a given day. In addition, we have made it easy to both subscribe and unsubscribe from our email newsletter, so we are hoping that you will take a moment to try this new service out.
Subscribing to Our Email Newsletter
The process of signing up for our email newsletter is very simple – just locate the “Subscribe Via Email” form on the right side of the website, type in your email and click “Subscribe”:
A small notification will be displayed thanking you for subscribing and that’s all there is to it! After that, you will be all set to receive our beautiful newsletters that will look like the following:
Privacy Notice: Please note that we take the privacy of each of our reader very seriously. We promise that we will never distribute or sell your email address to anyone!
If for whatever reason you are not pleased with this service and you want to unsubscribe, the process is as easy as signing up – just scroll all the way to the bottom of our email and you will find an “Unsubscribe” link in the footer:
All you have to do is click that link and confirm that you want to unsubscribe. After that, you will be permanently removed from our newsletter.
Please note that if you have previously signed up to receive emails from us, you should no longer be receiving those (either from Google or from WordPress). If by any chance you do get an email, please navigate to the bottom of that email and remove your email address. If you have any difficulty with doing that, please let me know in the comments section below and I will do my best to help you out!
If you have previously subscribed to our emails via Google, please note that you will no longer be receiving emails with full content of the articles. We have decided to move away from providing the full content of posted articles via email because of the numerous problems we have faced in the past. First of all, our reviews never properly made it to emails and when they did, one could not see anything beyond the first page. Second, whenever we embedded videos or other dynamic content, it was never visible, creating a lot of inquiries and complaints from our readers. Lastly, the large images we regularly post on the website significantly reduced the size of text fonts, making articles very difficult to read. For these and other reasons, we will only be providing a summary of the posted articles in a single email, so that you can selectively click the article(s) you are interested in reading – those will be opened in a browser and properly displayed.
Hope you enjoy this new free service from our team at PL. So far we have roughly 30,000 subscribers to our emails, so we are hoping to see more of our readers join! If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know in the comments section below!
