New features on The Archaic and the Arcane

So over the last few days, I’ve been puttering around behind the scenes of AA.  I’ve added a Pin It button, and a newsletter Opt In.

Pin it buttons are a fun way to share articles and photos you found interesting on our site, using the Pin It button you see on all of our posts, with your friends.  It’s great support for the site so I truly appreciate the exposure for our young site. I also find it a great way to remember where I found something and where to find it again.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, sign up at, it’s free.

You’ll find a Pin In button on each page,  Just click it and it will walk you through what to do to pin from the site. If you’re already on Pinterest, it’s just the same as most of the sites you use it on.

The newsletter is new software to me, so I’m learning a lot as I go.  It’s a way for you to choose to have me contact you when I announce things on the site.  It will be a low volume list, not as often as I post.  I was thinking of bi or tri weekly updates, there abouts.  I’m open to suggestions as to how often you guys and gals will want to hear from me. If you want to subscribe to each of those, the form to do it is on the right left side of the page.  (Change the theme, change the location of things)

You’ll also notice another list that you can opt into called “AA Deals”  This is another low volume short notice list.  I get notifications from my supplier of clear out, discontinued stock, and sales.  Things that I think I can offer to the people on the list, I will send out in email form.   These deals though are short notice limited time deals, because to buy the volume they’re clearing to get the deal they’re offering, I need to act fast.

Do you like the new features?  Hate them?  Have better features to suggest?  Let me know below in the comments area.

Pssst! I'd love to hear what you think about this!
