Are you confused about whether you are getting the newsletter? Maybe you are looking for those Extra Entry Codes but can’t find it. Let me walk you through both so you not only know what they are but which one you want to subscribe to.
The very simple difference between the two is that one is sent everyday with a listing of posts for that day. While the other is sent on specific days and actually contains more information for you.
The Rss feed comes daily to your email box. It is pretty simple and has only a listing of the daily posts. The top portion of that email will look like the image above. As you can see there is a section that says there will not be a code in it. I placed that there to make it easier for readers to tell the difference.
If you scroll down just a bit on the email you will see this simple listing (shown above.) That is how you know you are only receiving the Rss Feed.
The newsletter comes to you twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. The first thing you will notice (image shown above) is that the top of the newsletter looks different than the top of the Rss feed. The image is a different one and there is a paragraph I write each time it comes out. It contains different information and a little about what’s going on in my life.
The next section in the newsletter is a few posts that have been on the blog. This is sometime current giveaways, sometimes a few other posts. I like to give you a chance to see posts you may have missed.
Just past that is the Extra Entries Section. There is a code in the purple box along with an expiration date. That is the code that you enter into the Rafflecopter. You don’t put it in the comments section. You place it here:
In my Monthly Forecast post on the first of each month I let you know the dates of when the newsletter will come out that month. However, another thing to watch for is the Newsletter Today post on the blog and social media. I post one each time a newsletter comes out and it includes what to do if you don’t receive the newsletter. That post looks a little like this:
You need to be aware that I do housekeeping on the newsletter list every three months. I am able to see who receives the newsletter, if it bounces from your email, if you open it, and more. Every three months I will email those who haven’t opened the newsletter once in that time period to ask if they wish to stay on the list. If they don’t respond or tell they do not want to remain I remove them from the list. I hate sending emails to those who don’t want to receive it.
