Confirming Your Subscription to My Quarterly Newsletter

I was doing some database maintenance this morning and noticed that a few folks had signed up for my quarterly newsletter but hadn't confirmed their subscriptions. At least two of these folks are people I'm acquainted with, so I added them to the list manually, but I thought it might be a good time to remind everybody that newsletter signup is a two-step process. You need to put your name and e-mail address in the box on the right sidebar of my web site, and then you need to click on the link the system sends you in a follow-up e-mail.

When I was troubleshooting this, I realized the follow-up e-mail is a little unclear (That's what I get for trusting the default settings, eh?). So I cleaned it up to make it easier for people to understand.

As always, it's super easy to unsubscribe if you don't want to receive the newsletter anymore. You can either put your name and e-mail in the box on my web site again, or you can click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any newsletter.

Speaking of newsletters, my Samhain issue is just about ready, and it's full of Hal-Con news! So if you'd like to subscribe, this would be a great time to do it.
