Don’t miss a single blog post!

Just a quick post today to let you all know that you can get every blog post via email so that you don’t have to manually visit the blog or rely on seeing it via Facebook or Instagram. The every changing algorithms on various social media platforms means that you are never assured that you are seeing everything from someone you follow. This email subscription means it comes safely into your inbox every day I post an article here on the blog (Monday – Saturday).

This used to be done via Feedburner with my old blogger blog, but I have now upgraded it (with the help of my designer) so that the styling matches my blog. The email now contains the full blog post with images and has been designed so that it is easy to read on your smart phone (or tablet, laptop, desktop etc).  I love the clean look of it on my white iphone! Note: There has been a change-over period for the last month while we’ve been setting it up, so thanks to everyone that has stick around during the process.

My big goal is that by sketching my life and sharing the experience on a (almost) daily basis, I will inspire you to pursue your own creative journey. Writing 5-6 blog posts a week keeps me at it and I hope every blog post is a little prompt for you too.

I know that it is often hard to keep up with blog posts so subscribing via email is a great way to make sure that you don’t miss out. We have also designed the emails so that it contains links to recent posts as well, so if you haven’t had a chance to read the emails for a few days, you will easily be able to catch up.

I am really pleased with the increased discussions that are happening on the blog these days, so please make sure you hit the comments link and pop over to the blog to be part of the conversation. For example, there are lots of great thoughts about sketchbooks on Tuesday’s post.


Subscribe to receive every blog post by email:

Please check your inbox once you have hit the subscribe button for confirmation email


Note 1: The ‘every blog post by email’ subscription is different from my montly newsletter which is a monthly summary of news and links – exclusive content that I don’t share on the blog and also the first notifications of my workshops and online courses. This ‘every blog post by email’ subscription will send you an email containing the latest blog post in full everyday I post – it goes out at 11pm Sydney time.

Note 2: I am testing out a few different time slots for posting. It has been 5pm Sydney time for the 6 months or so, but I am have been trialing 8pm this week. I do want to stick to a schedule, so will let you know once I have determined what works best for me.

 

And… finally, thanks again for your continued support. I love sharing my thoughts and creative adventures with you all here on my blog but it is even more special when I hear from you.

So a huge thank you to every one that takes the time to leave a comment!

    I've been receiving these daily emails and love them--but what's changed that I *don't* love is that the subject line is now always just the plain vanilla: New Post from Liz Steel. I'd rather have it the way it used to be with a short topic up in the subject line I get it that people may skip over it unknowingly if they don't realize it's from you and when they're just doing a wholesale email purge in the morning, but I think you could still have a consistent *word* in the subject line (like "Liz"?) in each so readers could do a quick visual search and spot the one from Liz, which of course we all want to read ;) For example, this email's subject line could have taken the post title and just added the words, "From Liz." As in "From Liz: Don't miss a single blog post!" I look forward to your posts because they're far from boring and same old, same old. Don't make the subject line monotonous in the emails, please!

      Thanks Tonya. FeedBurner didn't have that option but I have asked my IT guy if it is possible in the new system... So yes it is a wish of mine to have the post heading in the email subject line. Hope we can do it!

    You are my new favorite person. You do incredibly where I barely dabble. Signed up for the email alerts and your newsletter. Both of your sites are beautiful. Truly. Designed so well. The generosity with your content is a testament to your character. Well done. An amazing artist sincerely helping others see and reach their potential. Can't wait to sign up for your Foundations class. That's next on my list.

    Can we have an RSS feed as well? I love your blog but don't read email newsletters. Too distracting!

    Kathryn Kerr highly recommended your site to me, and to our painting class, and I thank her for the nudge! So easy to follow, and I like your sketching style, lettering, etc. I am always looking for pens that fit, and do beckon me!
