Talking Photography On the Internet – Emailed Newsletters

There is so much information now available on the Internet, it’s overwhelming. It’s sometimes hard to figure out where to start and how to manage all the information overload.

How would you like the information filtered down to the topics that interest you, and have that information delivered to your doorstep? Well, how about your email inbox? Sound good?

Email newsletters and alerts are great ways to stay informed on your favorite subject with easy convenience. These newsletters come into your box daily, weekly, monthly, or when critical information is available. Many news agencies, like CNN, are now offering “news alerts” sending out breaking news announcments. This way you can stay on top of the news without having the TV or Radio on all the time.

With terrorism and war on everyone’s mind, the US’s new Homeland Security department has put together a National Emergency Email Network to connect national and local agencies. At the site, you can sign up to receive free email alerts to your computer, cell phone, or pager from local and national government sources, alerting you to terror alerts, severe weather, local health emergencies, evacuations, and much more. It is confined to local US information designated by the county you list in your registration, but it does include alerts that may affect you on a national scale.

One of my favorite email newsletters comes from Kim Komando, US radio personality and computer expert. Her newsletters are stuffed full of great computer tips, technical advice, and techniques as well as virus alerts. She also includes mention of the latest digital software and cameras and other computer hardware and software. To keep up-to-date on what is happening in the computer world, for the average person, her newsletter is great.

We’ve gathered some email newsletters and alerts listing to help you stay up-to-date on some of your favorite nature photography, nature, wildlife, environment, ecological, and travel interests. If you would like to find out more about the many newsletters out there, search for “email newsletter” on the Internet. To sign up, visit the web site by clicking on the highlighted newsletter title, or send an email with the subscription phrase in the body and subject line but leave the rest of the email blank. Enjoy!
