I suddenly stopped getting your newsletter this spring. All of a sudden, not a single issue. Why? And what do I do?
Based on that description, and especially the timing, unfortunately, there’s a very good chance you’ve been unsubscribed.
And it’s possible that I did it.
Let me explain why.
Roughly sometime each spring I actually pro-actively unsubscribe email addresses from the Ask Leo! Newsletter who meet a couple of criteria:
- They’ve been subscribers since before the beginning of the year.
- They’ve not opened a newsletter or clicked on a link since the beginning of the year.
If it looks like you fell into that category, then you were unsubscribed.
Unfortunately, it’s only 99.9% accurate, and there could be collateral damage.
If that was you, I apologize. Fortunately, the solution is extremely simple: just resubscribe.
You’ll find all the newsletters you missed archived here on https://newsletter.askleo.com — now and in the future.
And to help prevent it from happening again, make sure to display images in the newsletter, and every so often click a link to one of my articles. As long as security software doesn’t interfere, that should let me know that you’re interested. (Again, it’s not perfect, so I apologize if you do all that and still get unsubscribed.)
So, why do I do spring cleaning?
I’ve got an article explaining the concept in more detail: What Is “Spring Cleaning”?
