Welcome back Phase 1 subscribers!
It took me longer than expected to get the email notification working after Me-Go’s redesign, but it is finally back. If you received an email asking you to confirm your request it’s because you were on my previous list of subscribers. Now, of course, it’s possible that you didn’t want to hurt my feelings by unsubscribing last time and that’s okay. Only my immediate family is forbidden from unsubscribing (namely my little brother) so I won’t take it personally if you don’t respond to the confirmation email. Let’s just say that I will assume that you’ve changed email addresses or were eaten by wolves and aren’t deliberately trying to avoid me.
All of my new readers are welcome to subscribe as well. Basically, what it does is email you every time there’s a new post in this blog. As the Phase 1 subscribers know, sometimes on the road the blog can go a week or so without updates. There’s internet in most of the world, but I don’t think it’s reached the Gobi Desert yet! Personally, I prefer to subscribe to blogs, otherwise I will forget to check them. Of course, there is also a RSS feed on the bottom of the sidebar on the right hand side of this page as well for those of you who prefer RSS readers.
The subscription interface is located in the sidebar under the “extras” section. Or you can simply follow this link. You can also unsubscribe there as well. However, if you are in my immediate family and you unsubscribe I will just re-subscribe you, so don’t waste your time, Jason.
If you weren’t checking in because you had not received emails then you’ve missed a lot of the pre-trip planning going on for the fast few months. If that interests you check out the Pre-Trip Planning category on in the sidebar or look through the past few months of archives, also in the sidebar. The basic details are: I’m leaving next Thursday, June 8th and will spend six days in Seoul, South Korea before flying to Mongolia. I’ve worked out a rough route for visa and weather-planning purposes in this post.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my trip as much as I plan to.
