Because email services have taken very strong measures to fight spam, some emails from might be mistakenly routed to your spam filter, or otherwise sent to a folder like “promotions” in Gmail. That means you may never receive the free content you requested from me. These simple steps will help you receive email from me!


Learn how to whitelist your email

To ensure you never miss an email from me, you must train your email program (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook etc.) to deliver these messages to your primary inbox. This requires adding to a “whitelist.”

It’s always good practice to regularly check your spam filter for important messages and mark them “not spam” or “not junk”, which automatically adds the sender to the whitelist.
