To overcome problems or ordinary newletters (namely that mails from me directly or from Blogtrottr landed in the Gmail SPAM folder), I created a Google Group, specifically for updates from the site:
Follow the link to join the group.
In theory, one could send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe, but so far, I couldn’t get it working.
It will send the full contents of each entry that shows up in “all major updates”, so everything except “notes”.

You can follow me as @email@example.com and get the major updates from this site. That is thanks to fed.brid.gy and Superfeedr.
What about social media?
Social media has failed on me so many times that I gave up on syndicating content there. Some networks and some reasons:
- tumblr: banned “adult” content with an extremely error prone algorithm, with 2 weeks notice. I don’t want to support them any more.
- Facebook: I disabled my account after waiting for 2 months to show anything actually relevant from my friends mid 2018. I saw shares and likes, but no actual content, real updates.
- Twitter: I genuinely hate twitter’s interface and that they can’t find an identity.
- Instagram: I’d need to use the app to do anything with instagram, because they don’t have a web upload interface.
- Google+: I never used it. It’s good, because it’s getting deleted soon.
- WordPress.com: still thinking about this one, but I’d need to post the a complete copy of the content instead of just links, and that’s not really what I’d like to do.
- flickr: the only exception at this point in time, but with the recent first Verizon, then SmugMug transition, I really wonder about it’s future.
