Strings Attached

Please Accept My Apology

I’ve just deleted my post about Writer’s Digest 30 Days of NaNoWriMo Giveaways. Sadly, the magazine was not forthcoming about the subscriptions we will be subjected to.

What happened is this. After entering my email address to get the daily freebie, I got a message that stated:

“Thank you for signing up for our free e-mail newsletter (written by @BrianKlems, our multi-talented online editor who moonlights as a not-so-talented slam poet).”

Which led me to believe I was signing up for a single newsletter. So far, I have received three newsletters. After going to the subscription center, I discovered that I am signed up for 10 newsletters.

Not cool.

I went to the Writer’s Digest Subscription Center and unsubscribed from all but two of the newsletters. However, when I entered my email address for today’s freebie, I discovered that I had been once again automatically subscribed to all 10 newsletters.

So not cool.

I apologize for subjecting any of you to newsletter hell. Here’s how to get out of it.

  • Go to the bottom of one of those newsletters.
  • Click on the link, One-Click Unsubscribe
  • Click on the button, Unsubscribe From All

It’s too bad about not being able to score these freebies, but let’s face it, a freebie with strings attached isn’t really free.

Again, sorry for the hassle.
