Thank you all so much for the great feedback on freelancecafe.org – I really appreciate it. So what I’m hearing is that you like the email subscription option and you’re much more likely to read an email than check an RSS feed. Many of you would like a daily summary of the posts, and on the whole, you think the website looks pretty good. Excellent! So I’m ready to make the leap.
Here’s how this is going to work. I don’t want to lose any of you, so I’m going to sign you all up for the email subscriptions myself. I’ll start with the folks who sent feedback and I’ll wait a week or so to make sure everything is working properly before I start adding the rest of you. Once I add your name to the subscribers list, you’ll get an email that looks like this:
Click on the link and you should be good to go. Once I see that you’ve subscribed, I’ll take you off the regular email list so you don’t get duplicate emails. Should you decide that the email subscription is not for you, you can unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of any email you receive from Freelance Cafe. Oh, and the email subscription service is automatically a daily digest. It basically takes all the posts from that day and sends them out in email form. I can’t figure out how to change the frequency, so if you want more regular updates, just check the website itself.
Should you wish to comment or ask a question about any of the posts, I encourage you to click through to the site and write your comments there. I believe any replies to the subscription emails will come to me, but I’d love to generate a bit more conversation on the site itself.
As always, please continue to forward on any relevant events, workshops, award/fellowship/job opportunities, resources, anything you’d like to share with your fellow freelancers. I absolutely depend on you all to keep this thing going. And please continue to send your feedback on the site itself. I really appreciate any advice/suggestions/etc..
Thanks guys. Hope you like the new digs.
