Newsletters and Account Settings

Newsletters and Account Settings

I've recently just added a second free newsletter to my website and figured I'd take the opportunity to write a quick how to in case you want to update your own email preferences.

Current Newsletters

My first newsletter, Simply My Blog, has been running since first migrating over to Ghost and notifies you when a new post is published. It will continue to do so for the general blog posts.

My new newsletter is paired with my upcoming Apple app, Simply Customize It, and changes out the background templates and/or screens on your reMarkable e-paper device for you. This newsletter will be dedicated to app specific updates so if you only want that and not the general posts (or vis versa blog posts and not the app related content) you can switch one off.

Join Us!

If you aren't signed up and want to then feel free to join! You can create a free account by clicking here or by hitting the subscribe button on the right side of the page.

How To

To see which emails you're signed up for you first need to be logged in, then click on your account settings, manage your email preferences, and then toggle at will. Here are the steps in more detail.

Subscribe or Sign In

If you don't already have an account you will need to subscribe by clicking the floating subscribe button on the lower right side of your screen or by going through the buttons at the top of your screen.

On a smaller screen like my phone you'll need to open the menu by clicking on the lines on the upper right and then you'll see the subscribe and sign in buttons at the bottom.

On a wider screen you don't need to open the menu and can find it on the top right side of the screen.... or like before with floating button on the lower right side.

From there you just need to enter your name and email to create an account. Ghost doesn't need a password as it goes through your email.

Screenshot shows the sign up form with a spot for your name and email address. The sign up button is below with a sign in spot below that.
There's a popup to create an account and, if you're already a member, you can hit the sign in at the bottom.

By default you're registered for both newsletters and you'll just need to verify your email.

Sign In Process

If you already have an account you only need to remember which email you used as there's no passwords. Enter your email address and it will send you a link to gain access to your account.

With the email address entered you are next told to check your email account where you will find a secure sign in link to get into your account.

Account Page

Once signed in the floating subscribe button disappears and the subscribe button in the top menu switches to an account button. If you click on it you can see your name and click to edit your name, sign out, email me, or update your email preferences.

The button in the menu now shows the account page which brings you to all of your information and allows you to edit it.

From the account page you can edit your name, sign out, email me, or manage your emails.

Email Preferences

And with that we're in the email preferences. Here there's a spot for each of my newsletters so you can choose if you want to be subscribed to all of them, none of them, or some. Additionally, here you can turn off whether you're emailed if someone replies to one of your comments.

Image shows a screenshot of the top of the homepage once the manage your emails button was clicked. Here there are three toggles. One for the blog updates, one for the app updates, and one to be notified by comments.
Once in email preferences you can choose which of the newsletter you want and/or if you want to be notified when someone replies to your comment. Here all options are toggled on. Click to switch any to off.

And that's it. Comment below if you have any questions and I hope you're having a great day!
