How to subscribe to my website
Fun title, eh? For those of you who are already subscribed and going about your lives as if this isn’t really, really important, then do feel free to carry on with what you were doing.
However. Two things.
First, some people may or may not know how to subscribe to the site. I’ve messed with it a lot over the last couple of years and things have moved, stuff has changed.
Second, it seems I’ve made a royal mess of the RSS feed. Basically, when I moved the site to the marvellous Squarespace, I effectively didn’t read the instructions and pressed the wrong button. It wasn’t their fault. Feedpress, the service that handles the feed, it wasn’t their fault either. I just wasn’t paying attention. I’m a giant nit.
Effectively, in October, I abandoned around 600+ subscribers in cold web space. I’ve tried to find a way to get them back, including various forums, help desks and some occasional shouting into the breeze. Nothing has worked. As far as I can tell, they are gone. I hope that they are okay.
All of this makes it a sensible time to point people to the following details. If you were one of the abandoned, my arms are open and I would like you back. I’m sorry.
These are your options:
- Subscribe to the correct RSS feed and get new posts straight to your feed reader.
- Subscribe by email and get new posts sent straight to your inbox the day they are published.
- Subscribe to the site’s Twitter account and get new posts direct to your own stream.
You can also subscribe to my newsletter, which I will be starting up again shortly. It contains occasional me-news and plenty of links to useful writing, reading and related internet paraphernalia.
And I’m on Twitter as, you know, me, too. Feel free to find my face. Follow it.
