Why am I getting two emails from you whenever you post something new?

At the beginning of May 2016 I switched my emails from the default, automated ones that WordPress sends out whenever a new post is published, to a service where I can properly build each email, meaning I can include more content and make much nicer looking emails. In order to do this I had to copy my existing email list over to the new email service, but one of the downsides of the old, automated list is that I can’t then remove those emails from it… so everybody will get two until they unsubscribe from the old ones. I cannot unsubscribe you from the old emails, you’ll have to do this yourself (unless you want to keep getting both emails, of course!).

Here’s how to tell them apart.

The New, Awesome Emails

They’ll come from me[at]humblebeeandme.com look something like this:


The Old, Boring Emails

They’ll come from donotreply@wordpress.com and look like this:


These are the emails that you should unsubscribe from. Scroll down to the bottom of any of these emails and you’ll see this (red box added for emphasis):


Click that “unsubscribe” link to remove yourself from the old, boring email list and now you’ll just get the new, shiny emails!

Hey, I’m only getting the old emails!

No worries, you can sign up for the new ones here!
