OK, so see over to the right, I now have a signup for a free newsletter where you can be an "insider" hype-hype-hype, you get the inside scoop before anyone else bullshit-bullshit-bullshit, and you don't want to miss out on this hype-hype-hype. ....And oh, the offer is only good for the next 48 hours bullshit-bullshit-bullshit, so do sign up right NOW! hype-hype-hype.
I suppose that style of marketing-by-lying will be around as long as people fall for it. But the real story is that I'm asking for your permission to allow me to email you now an then -- but never more than once per week. In exchange, I'll throw you a bone from time to time that's not otherwise on the blog, or before it goes up on the blog.
That simple. And I won't share your email with anyone but my dogs.
So, may I have your permission to include you among the other subscribers?
