Daily Summary or Individual Emails
If you want to avoid RSS, and also avoid individual emails, I have setup a daily summary of the days posts, sent out at 5pm each week day. An example is shown below (truncated), the email is brief and can be scanned quickly.
- Sign up using this URL to visit the list: http://eepurl.com/xkKtT
each email will have a simple unsubscribe link at the bottom so you can control your receipt of this summary email. The list is entirely private, under my control only, not accessible to anyone else, and won't be passed on at all.
Click the Follow button on the right, enter your email address, and you'll get an email each time a new item is posted. The emails should have an unsubscribe link at the bottom, or else go to http://wordpress.com/#!/read/edit/ to manage your emails.
