      I cannot do this for you. As nearly as I can figure out, you subscribed from the E-News website itself, and you’re in charge of that. What I think you need to do is follow the link from one of the emails back to the website. Over on the right-hand side, you should see a line where it says that “YOU ARE FOLLOWING THIS BLOG

      You are following this blog, along with 465 other amazing people (manage).”
      Click the “manage” link, and that should take you to the place where you can unsubscribe. If you don’t see that “YOU ARE FOLLOWING THIS BLOG,” it means that I’ve guessed wrong about how you subscribed. Please let me know be emailing me at, and I’ll do some more searching through our database to see why you’re getting those emails.
