Sign Up! Blog Posts & Newsletter Subscriptions

I’ve recently changed my blog subscriber service. A number of you had signed up but weren’t receiving the posts and recipes in your Inbox — a few readers wrote to me and thought I had stopped blogging! Irked that I was typing and baking away, updating the blog regularly with stories and recipes to share, but readers weren’t getting them, I moved everything over to a brand-new service.

Because everybody wants to control their Inbox, and not everyone wants to receive both blog posts and the newsletter (although why not?) – there are separate sign ups for each. If you are already a subscriber to either, you don’t have to re-sign up. However if you’re unsure, or haven’t been getting them, you should enter your information in the forms below, and it will let you know if your address is already in there. You can also use the two sign-up Subscribe forms in the upper right sidebar of the website.

– Sign up for the newsletter, click here=> Newsletter Sign Up

– Sign up for blog posts & recipes delivered to your Inbox, click here=> Blog Post Sign Up

Notes

-Your email address will not be used for any other purpose, other than sending out a monthly newsletter and for sending out blog posts. Email addresses will not be shared, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

-In order to ensure that you get messages delivered to your Inbox, please add davidlebovitz.com to your “approved sender” list, so they don’t go into your spam folder. For Gmail Users, here’s how to do it with Gmail. For Gmail users, when you receive the newsletter or blog entries, drag those first emails into your Primary folder, and they will go into there in the future, rather than into the Promotions folder.

-You don’t need to subscribe to receive blog posts by email if you don’t wish to. You can still come to the site and read them as you wish. If you choose to have them come to your Inbox, you’ll get a notification and introduction to the post in your Inbox.

-Due to an overlapping error, some newsletter subscribers may receive blog posts sent to their Inbox. My apologies but you can easily opt out of those at the bottom of those emails. Please excuse any other tech glitches that many arise due to switching over to the new service, and we hope to get them ironed out as quickly as possible.

Blog Notes

Google Reader

A number of you use Google Reader to visit and read the blog through the RSS feed, which allows you to subscribe to the site using a “reader.” Unfortunately Google Reader is going away at the end of this month. But don’t fret – there are other reader options, which include Feedly (which allows you to migrate your data and feeds easily), Newsfire, Blog Lovin’ (thanks, deb), and The Old Reader (thanks, commenters.) If you’re on an iPad or other tablet or mobile device, Flipboard is pretty nifty, too.

Another option is to have blog posts/entries e-mailed to you, which you can do by filling out the form at the bottom of this post in that gray box that says “Never Miss a Post.” Your e-mail address is never shared from there and it’s only used to send you blog posts, which you can cancel at any time. But why the heck would you want to? ; )

New Newsletter – Sign Up!

I’ve decided to revamp my newsletter by signing up with a new service, ramping up the content, and making it a regular monthly feature. In the newsletter, you’ll find photos, stories, Paris travel tips, recipes, and other information that will only be in the newsletter. I’m working on getting the hang of the software, but I’m looking forward to sharing information there that doesn’t make it on to the blog. Of course, the newsletter is free and you will not be bombarded with any other kinds of messages—you will just receive the newsletter in your inbox when it’s sent out, that’s all. You can sign up using the form here:




Your e-mail address is never shared and the sign-up for the newsletter uses a double opt-in system, so that you will receive a confirmation message than you’ll need to reply to in order to be added to the list*. (To ensure you get it, you may want to add davidlebovitz.com to your ‘safe’ list in your e-mail program, so it doesn’t go into your spam folder.)

Please note that if you’re already on the newsletter list from the previous newsletter, your delivery address has been moved so there is no need to re-subscribe and you will not get a confirmation message if you do.

At the end of each newsletter is a link to follow in case you want to unsubscribe. I’ll miss you. But we’ll always have Paris.

How to Use the Comment Feed

A number of you have asked me about adding a Comment RSS feed to the site, so you can keep in touch with the comment and responses. We’re in the process of adding one at the end of each post, but if you’re using Firefox or Safari, each already has a built-in way to subscribe to the comment feed of the site.

  • In Firefox, in the URL bar, where the name of the site appears, there is a square orange icon on the right (see above). Click on it, and there is a drop-down menu for both subscribing to the RSS feed for the site and for the comment feed. If you hover your cursor over it, then click on it where it says, “Subscribe to this page…” the drop-down menu will tell you which one it is.
  • In Safari, there is a gray box that says RSS in the URL field, where the name of the site appears. If you click on that gray box, a drop-down box will appear with two feeds: one for the blog itself and the other for comments.
  • For those of you who use Explorer, there are directions at the Windows site.

    We’ve also added a Recent Comments widget in the right sidebar so you can zoom to a comment or response that might interest you. Since I jump into the comments often, recent or in the archives, it’s now easier to see what people are talking about, near and far.
