Sign Up for My New Newsletter

I’m taking a little pause after an especially hectic December and the holidays…and 2020 in general. One task I took on before the end of the year was moving my newsletter to Substack.


If you’d like to subscribe to my new newsletter, you can do so using the signup form above or here. Once you sign up, you’ll get an email asking you to confirm your subscription, which you’ll need to respond to. If you don’t get the opt-in email, check your spam folder. (If you change your mind at a later date and wish to unsubscribe, there’s an option to do so at the end of every newsletter.)

The newsletter comes out monthly and will continue to be free, however there’s now also a premium (paid) option that will offer additional content to subscribers, including recipes, subscriber-only discussion forums, Q+As, and maybe even videos, in the future. If you sign up in January, you’ll get 20% off the annual subscription price. When you enter your email address in the form above, you can choose from one of the three options: Free, paid (monthly), and paid annually, which you can choose there.

If you’re already a subscriber to my newsletter, you are already on the list and should still be getting the newsletter regularly. (And thanks for subscribing!) If you signed up to get the newsletter over the past month or so and didn’t get it, you may have signed up during the transition so you can enter your email address above. If you’re already signed up, it’ll let you know that you’re in!

    David, just to clarify, does this mean you’re deprecating this blog/site and moving your online presence to the Substack newsletter? Or will both co-exist? Cheers! Reply

      The blog will remain the same, but I changed my newsletter platform which allows me to add additional content for readers (mentioned above) who would like to subscribe but the regular newsletter is free, as it’s always been. Reply

    It would be helpful to know the subscriptions costs. Thanks. Reply

      You can click on the link in the post and it should show you the free option as well as the paid one. If it doesn’t, let me know what you see and I can see about fixing it. Reply

    I’d like to subscribe to the premium newsletter, but don’t find where I do that. Reply

      If you enter your email address, it should give you three options. One is free and other two are premium (paid monthly or annually) – if you don’t see it, let me know. Reply

        I did not get anything with the options. Reply

      Same here. I’d like to subscribe to the premium content but don’t see where to do that (or what the cost is). Reply

    I also do not see the cost of the subscription. Reply

    Felice, Francine, Tomese: If you don’t see that option you can click here. Reply

    The 3 options are not presented when you initially subscribe to the newsletter. However, once you’ve subscribed and confirmed your email address you are able to view the different subscription options and upgrade by clicking on the subscribe button from within the newsletter itself.
    It would still be nice to show these initially, which I think is what was intended, but I wanted to share how you can do so now. Reply

      Thanks for letting me know! I can’t see that (since I’m already a subscriber) so I’ve asked Substack how to fix it and will implement it once I hear back. Appreciate your letting me know. xxx david Reply

    No offence but I honestly don’t understand why you can’t just tell us how much the paid subscriptions cost without us having to click on the link you say to click on especially since that hasn’t worked very well. I signed up for your regular newsletter ages ago which I absolutely love, but being on a very fixed income now, I can’t really afford to pay much for a subscription I’d be banned from if I don’t pay for it.

      Sorry it’s been a problem for you. I didn’t want to mention the price because comments are archived and people refer back to them months (and years) later and due to the high number of comments, I can’t go back and edit them all. The current price is $30/year and there is a 20% discount if people subscribe during the month of January 2021 (about $2/month). After that the price will go up. Note that the newsletter price may change in the future.

      As mentioned, the regular newsletter will go out as normal and will continue to be free, as it has since before 2008. Reply

    Thanks for clearing that up, David. I’ll probably just stick to your regular newsletter even though the others do sound so tempting. Reply

    David, will you have a PayPal option? Reply

      Substack doesn’t use PayPal, just Stripe. Reply
