Blog news: new email subscription system

Dear readers,

We wanted to let you know that we’ve switched to a new email subscription system (designed by WordPress) for the OLP & Literary Studies blog. Those of you who already have email subscriptions to the blog, and are happy with how your subscriptions work, don’t need to do anything. Existing subscriptions will be unaffected by this change.

But going forward, we decided to switch from the old system (run by Google) to the new WordPress one because the WordPress system will give our subscribers much greater control over how frequently they receive notices from the blog. Google’s system gave you no control: you received one email a day, on any day a new post was published on the blog. With the new system you can decide to receive email notices (1) immediately after every new post is published, (2) once a day, or (3) just once a week. If you want to keep up with the blog but don’t feel you need a daily update of new postings, please consider signing up for an email subscription with the new system and choosing the weekly delivery option.

For information about how to sign up for a new email subscription, please take a look at our Subscribe page.

If you switch from the old to the new system and would like to stop receiving emails from the old one, click on the “unsubscribe” link that can be found at the bottom of any of your current emails notices.

Sorry for all this technical information! If you have any questions about this, or experience any problems making the move to the new subscription system, please let us know. Please feel free to email Bernie with any questions you might have at brhie@williams.edu and please put “OLP” somewhere in your email’s subject line.

Thanks for reading through this, and more importantly, thank you all for your continuing interest in this site.

— The blog editors
