Do check your spam folder regularly, and add the sender (iThemes, PluginBuddy, or perhaps WebDesign.com) to your list of trusted senders.
Keep sharing the newsletter, and get more people to sign up, you do not have to be an iThemes customer to get something out of it. We'd love you to become one of course.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the newsletter, questions, remarks and recommendations to tips@ithemes.com.
