Routinely Itemised is Geek Native’s Friday night bullet-point summary of RPG news. Each article contains lists of headlines from this blog and others so that you can scan it and get quickly up to date.
There’s a newsletter too. You can sign up to Geek Native’s daily digest and get updates straight to your inbox.
If you want just email alerts whenever there’s a new Routinely Itemised update then you’ll need to use a clever site called IFTTT.com.
IFTTT.com stands for “If That Then This”, it’s free to use and helps automate your stuff. Geek Native is not affiliated with IFTTT, can’t provide support and alternatives exist – such as Zapier.

- Click on your profile and go to Create.

It’s easier than it looks. Promise. If this is your first exposure to IFTTT, then you’ll likely find it useful for very many things.
Waaa… are there other ways?
There are surely other ways to get email alerts when there’s new content on Geek Native or Routinely Itemised.
It’s less precise, but you could create a Google Alert and use this code.
site:geeknative.com "Routinely Itemised"
That means whenever any page uses the phrase “Routinely Itemised” you will get an email, or it’ll go into your alert digest, pending on your settings.
It’s worth being aware that other pages sometimes mention “Routinely Itemised”, though. Like this one.
