TanglePatterns has 3 newsletter subscriptions: TanglePatterns (new posts), Comments, and Weekly Digest.

Each is a separate subscription so if you sign up for all three you will need to confirm three times, one for each.

  1. Click here: Subscribe to TanglePatterns by Email and enter your email address — you can even choose to receive a Weekly Digest (Sunday delivery) if you don’t want to receive daily emails.
  2. Double check that you have entered the correct email address — typos occur more often than you’d think!
  3. Activate your subscription by clicking on the link in the email you’ll receive immediately from FeedBlitz on behalf of TanglePatterns. If you do not activate your subscription, you will not receive the email updates.

Heads up: If you don’t receive your activation email(s) immediately (check your junk mail folder) then very likely there was a typo in your email address, so try again.

How to CHANGE your email address or PAUSE your subscription

Should you ever need to change your email address or unsubscribe here’s how. (See the ABOUT > HOW TO CHANGE YOUR EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION page.)

You’ll even find information there on how to PAUSE your subscription temporarily when you go on vacation.


Every electronic newsletter you subscribe to regardless of the source contains a LINK to unsubscribe.

Every TanglePatterns email newsletter contains an unsubscribe link, so you can opt-out at any time.

Look for the “Unsubscribe” link in your email newsletter and click that to unsubscribe.

If you’re subscribed to 3 newsletters, you’ll need to unsubscribe from each one.
