You should double-check that you’re still on my mailing list

The short version
If you think you’re subscribed to my mailing list, you should double-check that you are. Just go to this page, submit you email address, and if you’re already subscribed it will tell you.

The long version
I started my mailing list over three years ago when Half-Assed was coming out. After I was through promoting that book, I neglected the mailing list for the next two years. If it were a plant, it would have turned brown and crinkly. Now that Chocolate & Vicodin is coming out, I took the old list and imported it to Mail Chimp, a well-regarded e-newsletter service that has cool tracking features and reports.

I sent out my first email a month ago, but was sure to add a little note at the top telling people why they were getting the message and how to unsubscribe if they were no longer interested. Evidently, six people didn’t remember subscribing to the list and didn’t read the first line because they reported the message as spam, which caused MailChimp to temporarily suspend my account. I had to remove all the addresses I’d imported, leaving only the ones that had signed up after I started using MailChimp. I then had to personally send a message to all the old addresses asking those people to resubscribe. However, due to technical issues I’m not 100% sure all those people got the message, and there’s no way I’m going to send another message spamming people by telling them I don’t want to spam them.

So! If you want to be subscribed to my list, you should probably go double-check here. If you’re already subscribed, the form will tell you. Otherwise you’ll just have to click a confirmation link in an email.

Thanks! I promise that someday something I run will go totally smoothly with no bumps or bruises. Someday. Yes, someday.

Jennette Fulda tells stories to the Internet about her life as a smartass, writer, weight-loss inspiration, chronic headache sufferer, and overall nice person (who is silently judging you). She does this at JenFul now, but you can still have fun perusing her past here.

Totally agree with this article. Definitely the worst mistake the series has ever made.
