I had a wonderful conversation with “Leslie” this morning. We were talking about the fears people have of ‘subscribing’ to a blog. (See the word SUBSCRIBE over to the right) I mentioned to her that while I love my website, and really enjoy writing in my blog and answering questions in the forum, I’m afraid that some people are well, still afraid.
I shared with her the fact that I have, unsolicited, subscribed my entire family and nearly every friend I have! (They forgive me, of course, and to my knowledge have not yet ‘unsubscribed!’) Anyway, “Leslie” and I concluded that I should BLOG about it.
1) The author will ‘sell’ your email address
2) You will no longer be anonymous
3) Your privacy will be invaded
4) You’ll be bombarded with emails from said Blogger.
Nothing could be further from the truth. You can subscribe and unsubscribe as often as you’d like, and I’ll never even know! (There goes my theory about thinking the family is all still subscribed) It’s true, though. I would love for you to sign up for notifications, but if it drives you crazy, UNsubscribe. As for selling email addresses…no way. Truth is, I won’t even know your email address. You remain anonymous. You’ll always maintain your privacy AND anonymity as far as my blog is concerned. I’m just glad you’re a part of it, and I hope you’ll tell all your friends. 🙂
