You can now follow my blog on Follow.it!
For more than a year this blog used a Google Form for managing subscriptions, and relied on me to manually copy all the emails and write a newsletter to keep you all updated.
There has been an upgrade…
As you might notice, the “Subscribe” button at the top of this screen looks a bit different. Not only has its color changed, but its behavior changed as well. If you click on that button you’ll be brought to Follow.it‘s website where you can enroll in automatic email subscriptions to my blog. In addition, the bottom of every post now also has an area for you to subscribe to the blog.
This service was easy to set up, with the only steps required for me after signing up was to modify my “Subscribe” button to link to their website like so:
<a style="color: green;"
And I also needed to include a file they provide called
verification-follow_it-3QprZbtAaJCwAQG7GdKd.html at the base-level of my website that verifies I am the owner.
After this, I now have a subscription system set up for automatic email updates, with no limits to the number of subscribers, completely for free!
