My Pointless E-mail Rebellion
|Allison Felus||Mar 1, 2016|
Friends, if you've known me for any length of time, you know that I sometimes can get contrary just for the sake of being contrary.
Well, setting up an e-mail newsletter is probably not the optimal situation for getting all snotty and needlessly defiant. Sometimes popular things are popular for a reason.
To make a long story short, it's come to my attention that the newsletters I was sending out via my previous e-mail service were not landing in a lot of people's inboxes, especially those of you who use Gmail accounts. The e-mails were either getting tagged with stern warnings about possibly being fraudulent or getting trapped by spam filters. My apologies for asking you to sign up for my mailing list and then seemingly leaving you in the lurch!
I've switched over to Tiny Letter for now, which is already worlds easier to work with. Plenty of my own favorite newsletters are sent out via Tiny Letter, so the fact that I didn't just start off with it in the first place was truly nothing more than my own often foolhardy tendency to zig when everybody else zags.
So, if you missed any of my previous newsletters, I now have December, January, and February's editions archived here.
And, if you missed it when I sent it late Sunday night, you can read the entirety of February's digest by clicking here. But, if you'd prefer to just hit the highlights, they are as follows:
I've created a new digital demo reel on Soundcloud, featuring selections of recordings from my bands Pet Theories, Tiny Magnets, and more
my favorite cover of "I'm Waiting for the Man" is this one by Richard Hawley
Thank you for your patience with me as I sort out these glitches that could have otherwise been avoided if I'd, just, y'know, listened to my smarter, savvier tech friends' recommendations. If you would like to be the smarter, savvier tech friend to anyone else of your acquaintance by introducing them to this very newsletter, you can point them to the sign-up form over here.
Big hugs and much love,
