The process for logging in to the Madison Minutes website is a bit unusual.

Here's how it works:

How to sign up for an account/newsletters

Signing up for our newsletters is the same as creating an account. If you create an account on our website, you are signing up for newsletters. If you sign up to receive newsletters, you are creating an account on our website, too.

You can sign up by hitting "Sign up" on the menu at the top of our website. There are additional signup prompts scattered across other parts of our website as well.

About our email updates

We have a few different types of emails here at Madison Minutes. When you sign up for an account, you are subscribing to all three of the following emails:

  • Morning update newsletter. This is our flagship newsletter. We send it every weekday morning (except on big holidays and stuff like that). When people talk about "Madison Minutes," they're almost always talking about this newsletter. It features a mix of news content and events coverage.
  • Events newsletter. We send this once a week. In this newsletter, we share significant, interesting, and just plain weird local events (and no, we're not saying which ones are which).
  • Internal updates. These are important updates about Madison Minutes itself. We don't send these very often.

All of our newsletters are automatically published as website posts, too. Here's where you can find past editions: morning newsletters, event newsletters, and internal updates.
