I realize I have not written here in quite awhile, and I am working on that. (More about that later in a future post.) In the meanwhile, I've been reassessing how I am using this blog, and how my subscribers are using it as well.
Some of you are subscribed via Feedblitz. Feedblitz is a service I pay for on a yearly basis. The payment model is based on number of subscribers. So, I happen to notice that some of you are subscribed multiple times, with a variety of email addresses. If that is your preference, then don't do anything. I'm happy to have you (and all of your personas) as subscribers.
If however, you are not using all of your subscription, I wonder if you would go ahead and unsubscribe using the email you no longer want to receive these emails.
On the other hand, this may be the first time you've heard of anyone receiving these posts via email, and your brain just said, "Hey, that's a great idea!" So, feel free to subscribe using the Feedblitz widget on the right-hand side of my blog.
Bottom line: I'm happy to have, and pay, for every subscriber. If there are some that are not being used, then unsubscribing might just save me a few bucks each year.
As Google Reader is now defunct, I've sort of lost my way with following blogs. What reader, or method, do you use to keep up with your favorite blogs?
