New for 2012: Changes to the Common Errors in English Usage e-calendar mailings

A while back I wrote a post about my difficulties in delivering the Common Errors in English Usage daily entries, the e-version of what used to be a tear-off daily paper calendar. In that post, I described the impossibility of delivering massive amounts of e-mail through my own server and let followers of the calendar know that the e-mails would have a new look from then on.

But times change. The service I had signed up with has begun charging for what they do (it is not trivial), and since I am determined to keep the daily delivery free of charge, I am forced to once again change the delivery method for the e-calendar.

Unfortunately, this time the change will require subscribers to take action. If you would like to continue your subscription, please click this link to go to the blog dedicated to the Common Errors in English Usage daily entries and enter your e-mail address into the "FOLLOW BY EMAIL" section on the right side of the page. Follow the subsequent directions to complete the subscription (it takes less than a minute), and you will be back to receiving the entries in your mailbox every day. As always, your e-mail address will not be used for any other purpose than to deliver the entry to your inbox, and there will be an "unsubscribe" link to remove you from the list at any time.

I am sorry for the inconvenience, but I believe this will be the best long-term solution for keeping the daily entries coming free-of-charge and without further interruption.

Yes, have (re)subscribed via email. It's more convenient to have a dedicated blogsite that you have now.

Thank you for your daily e-mails. I refer to them and to your website often. I manage a group of employees whose first language is not english in an environment where report writing is a primary task. I use your e-mails to provide coaching on their writing skills.

Thanks, Tom, for your efforts. The daily emails are very useful. I tell others about the website when trading favorites. What a wonderful service you provide!

I am a Singaporean living in France and working in Luxembourg and I wish to add my simple yet heartfelt thanks for your efforts and generosity.

Being the only native English speaker in my local network, I appreciate keeping in touch with the language via your emails. They also help me to continue to improve my skills without too much effort.

I have been recommending your service to family and friends. Most recently, it was to a French colleague who is discreetly working to improve his English as his environment can be discouraging. In his case, he is faced with the mockery of a few fellow countrymen/women.

Anyway, all the above is just to highlight a little of how your emails are of value to many people all over the world and in various situations. Thanks again!

At nearing 70, I'm shocked at language misuse, and I'm from a family of immigrants! At any rate, I went to a party yesterday and my child, who is a Mom with a college degree, said "It was so fun!" I almost chocked! I don't know the REASON it isn't correct, but I KNOW that it isn't. So, finding your site today is helpful. I was beginning to think I had lost MY mind!
