Along with the 35,000 weekly Patently-O website readers, there are also about 3,500 readers who subscribe to the blog through a daily e-mailer. Up to now, I have been using a service known as Bloglet. Unfortunately, Bloglet has been unreliable and because it is a free service, Bloglet offers absolutely no customer service.
In light of those problems, I have switched the e-mail service from Bloglet to FeedBlitz. I will leave Bloglet running for the next couple of days (so that you get this message) and then turn it off. You should automatically begin receiving the FeedBlitz e-mails from the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org (put that in your white-list). If there is a hitch, you can sign-up for the mailing list using the form in the upper-right corner of the blog.
Of course, if you were signed up anonymously with Bloglet, I could not transfer your account (because I don’t know who you are). You will need to re-up using the form in the upper-right corner of the blog.
About the mailing list: Rather than sending entire posts (that are occasionally long), the e-mail only contains a snippet from each post. Html links will be provided for users to click-through to the full text articles. If you decide that you do not like getting the e-mail, it is quite easy to unsubscribe. Each daily e-mail includes an unsubscribe link, all you have to do is click on the link and your subscription will be cancelled.
I’m not going to distribute your e-mail address to anyone except for my secretary. However, I may e-mail you personally to see whether you have any suggestions for or comments on the patent blog.
