Many regular readers have asked me where the subscribe button is. I always had to answer that we don't have such a button. If you look in here every day, you don't need this button.
Yesterday I went looking and found a plugin that provides such a button. If you want to be notified about new posts, you can use the new button “Activate notifications”. Then you will receive an email if something happens here.
I guarantee that we will not send any spam through this function. I also guarantee that we will save the email addresses. And I guarantee that we will not pass the addresses on to third parties.
UPDATE: I had to uninstall the plugin because it didn't work as expected. But I'll take care of another option.
