Website Notes: A New email Subscription Service

In the past you've been able to follow updates on the website by using the 'subscribe by email' link on the right hand side of the website main page. In fact if you're reading this as an email in your inbox then that's how you're getting your updates at the moment. If you're happy with how this works then there's no need to read any further.

However I've decided to offer the facility to subscribe to an update email which will go out no more than once a week, probably on Sunday night. The email will contain a summary of posts of interest (if any!) that have appeared during the week and have a clickable link to the home page of the website. It will look a bit like this:

If you'd like to subscribe to these updates, simply send an email to  containing the word 'Subscribe' in either the title or the message body.

If later on you want to stop receiving the updates, do the same thing but with the word 'Unsubscribe'

If you're already using the feedburner 'follow by email' service and you're happy with it then you can ignore all this.

Update: after a bit of 'end user testing' we've decided to change the format of the email to include a summary of the news and just a single link to the home page:
