Change to Mailing List Version of View from the Wing

Well over a thousand people currently receive each day’s postings by email. I can’t tell you how great it makes me feel that so many folks opted for that. This site is a labor of love and I really appreciate all the great feedback that I get.


I hope that you like the new format of the website. I really do, and appreciate the work that the tech folks put into it. I find it much more readable, and also easier to work with.


One consequence, though, of moving from a home grown system to Movable Type is that I no longer have the ability to send out each day’s content by email. Everyone has still been getting the content because I’ve manually been double-adding the entries into the old system in addition to the new one. I’m going to stop that shortly.

Alas, in order to get the site’s content, you’re going to have to come to the site.

There are a few things that’ll make it easier however.

First, the RSS feed has been much-improved. Scroll down to the bottom on the right to grab the feed that’s best for you.

Second, I do have the ability to notify the list of subscribers of new posts. I will do this sparingly, but I will make sure that everyone knows when I post amazing and important deals. To sign up (and join the over-a-thousand strong list) just enter your email in the box to be notified, also on the bottom-right of this site.

You can also read View from the Wing on your mobile phone at winksite.com/gleff/blog.

And please do let me know what you think of the new format, as usual comments are open.

  1. Gary,

    Thanks for the blog – I’ve learned countelss new things from you. I’ve got a quick question? Is it possible to subscribe to updates to the FT blogs? I know currently it isn’t, but perhaps that’s something that could be worked on in the future? We have the ability to subscribe through our FT accounts to threads on FT – now that FT is hosting the blogs, do you think that may become a reality soon?

  2. I use RSS, so I’m not on your mailing list, but I’m a regular reader nonetheless. You’ll have to look at RSS hits to get a sense of that subscriber population.
