If you don't subscribe to my newsletter, Digital Education, then you don't need to read any more (except for the bit about the benefits of subscribing, near the end of this article!).
I thought I'd mention here that, further to the article I posted entitled All change for Digital Education, I've now transferred my newsletter subscribers to a new version of the same newsletter. So why am I telling you this?
Because despite my best efforts, the message I sent out to subscribers (see below) informing them of what was about to happen ended up in at least one person's junk email.
Here's the lowdown: if you subscribe to my newsletter and you haven't received a message asking you to confirm that you still wish to subscribe, please look in your junk or spam folder, find the email, and click on 'Confirm' -- assuming you want to, of course. If not, just ignore it, and you won't be bothered again and your information will be deleted after 30 days.
Here's the message you may have missed, which I sent out on 13th March 2018:
As I wrote in the most recent issue of Digital Education, which you can find at http://bit.ly/TFDigEd20180304, I need to start a new version of this newsletter in order to ensure that only people who still wish to be subscribed are on the mailing list, and to have proof that that is the case.
With this in mind, I'm going to send you an invitation to confirm that you would like to remain subscribed to Digital Education.
If you accept the invitation and click on Confirm, you will continue to be subscribed to Digital Education, and you will continue to receive the newsletter as usual. In fact, you won't really notice any change, apart from the fact that you will receive the confirmation and follow-up emails once again.
If you ignore the invitation, then after 30 days your data will be deleted.
In other words, if you wish to remain subscribed to Digital Education, you will need to confirm that you want to be. If you don't want to be, then you don't have to do anything.
I apologise to you if you subscribed to this list after November 2017, because you will need to confirm your subscription again. Unfortunately, there isn't a mechanism for simply transferring names from one list to another and retaining the 'Confirmed' status of subscribers. On the plus side, it will only take you a moment to resubscribe.
If you are concerned that you don't have time at the moment to resubscribe and are worried about forgetting to do so within the next 30 days, I have a fail-safe solution. If you enter your name and email address on the form at http://bit.ly/TFDigEd, I will send you another invitation to subscribe to the list after your data has been deleted after 30 days.
I'm aiming to start this process on Friday 16th March.
To make sure you continue to receive the newsletter, it's a good idea to add my details to your approved emails list. The way to do so is described in this article: https://blog.aweber.com/how-to-whitelist-us.
I hope that is all clear, and once again I apologise for the slight inconvenience, especially if you have only just signed up.
