SIGN UP FREE!! Never miss a tangle

Sign up to get new TanglePatterns postings delivered free to your inbox by email in just a few easy steps.

It’s free. I never sell or give out your address. You can unsubscribe anytime.

TanglePatterns has 3 email subscription lists: TanglePatterns (new daily posts), Comments, and Weekly Digest (a summary of the previous week’s posts, delivered on Sunday).

  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’ve entered the correct email address — typos occur more often than you’d think!
  3. If you entered your email address correctly you will immediately receive a “Thank you for subscribing” email from FeedBlitz on behalf of TanglePatterns.
  4. Please add to your whitelist so your subscriptions aren’t blocked by your spam filter. This is the service that delivers the emails to you on my behalf.

Heads up: If you don’t receive your “Thank you for subscribing” 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: use your subscription management links at the bottom of any email, 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 subscription you sign up for — regardless of the online source — contains a LINK to unsubscribe.

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

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

If you’re subscribed to three lists, you’ll need to unsubscribe from each one.
