If you would like easy access to each weekly edition of “This Week’s Finds,” there is a mailing list you can sign up for.
The easiest way to do it is to use the sign-up box to the right. (Scroll down just a little and you’ll see it.) Nothing nefarious will happen with your email address when you enter it in the box; it is not collected or shared or used for any other purpose other than to put you on the list to receive the weekly email.
But if you are averse to web-based forms, you can also sign up by sending an email with “subscribe” in the subject line to fingertipsmusic-request at freelists (convert this to an email address, and it’s dot org not dot com).
You don’t have to write anything in the body of the email. After sending it you should relatively quickly receive a confirmation email from Freelists that will involve your consenting to signing up before you are added to the list. Sorry for the extra step but I figure people like the protection; no one can be signed up by someone else against his or her wishes, that sort of thing.
The weekly email goes out once a week, sent out some time between 12 p.m. on Tuesday and 6 p.m. on Wednesday (that would be Eastern Time in the U.S.). More or less.
Please be aware that the weekly email may occasionally be sent (inadvertently) with minor errors–typically a typo or a broken link. These will always (I hope!) be fixed on the actual web site and blog, but the email itself may remain imperfect, as “Correction” emails are sort of a drag both to send and to receive. Really prominent errors will be corrected in a follow-up email, but little ones may, alas, remain uncorrected.
