2. Enter your email address and click Request Details.

3. After requesting your details, you’ll be sent an email with a link in it. WATCH FOR IT! By clicking the link, you’ll be taken to a page where you can manage your subscriptions.

You may wonder, “WHY do I have to click so many @#$% links just to subscribe!?” It’s to keep you safe from malicious people who would try to subscribe you to everything on the Internet and fill up your inbox! (In some places, this double opt-in check is required by law.)
