A post from Shady Characters

Changes to email subscriptions

Feedburner, the Google service that Shady Characters uses to send email notifications of new posts, is closing down its email service. As such, I’ve updated the subscription widget at the bottom of the site to use WordPress.com’s email subscription feature instead.

To avoid cluttering anyone’s email inbox, I will not be moving existing subscribers to the new service. If you’re already subscribed to email notifications and you’d like to continue to receive them, please do one of the following:

In either case, don’t forget to check your email inbox to confirm your subscription.

If you’d prefer to follow Shady Characters on social media, you can find me on Twitter and Facebook. All of the posts made here are also publicised to those sites. You can also use good old fashioned RSS, if that’s your jam.

If you have any questions, please either leave a comment below or drop me a line directly.
