For a while, we’ve been offering a readers an email newsletter called the ARLnow.com Afternoon Update. We buried the link to the sign-up page because, well, we weren’t thrilled with the functionality. The emails looked kind of sloppy and we couldn’t get it to send at the exact time we wanted to.
Now, we’ve switched to a new service and we’re excited to tell you all about it. The new Afternoon Update will be sent at 4:00 p.m. daily, just in time for you to catch up on the day’s stories before heading home from work. The headlines are easier to read, it’s easier to subscribe and unsubscribe, and it’s now the sign-up confirmation emails are less likely to get caught in your spam filter.
Click here to sign up now. Did we mention it’s completely free and we won’t send you any spam or extraneous emails?
Existing subscribers: you have already been moved over to the new service.
