Our dear, dear (uh huh) friends at Feedburner have been yanking us to and fro about when they’re going to pull the plug on our newsletter subscriptions. The cutoff date was supposed to have been earlier this week, so beyond that, we’ve been on borrowed time.
I’ve looked into a half dozen different options to switch over to and it just came down to what’s simplest. I don’t want to fill in fancy forms and templates to pack your email with (well, okay, I’m just lazy), so I’ve decided to just stick with a basic WordPress format. The default is delivery once per day at 7:00 central time, but I believe you can change that to as often as you like.
I’ve already turned off the Feedburner email subscriptions and imported them into WordPress. It should be a seamless transition other than the look and I may have to play with that a tiny bit but as you’ll see next week, I’m not going to have a problem with that.
There are a number of people still reading the blog through various feed readers – I have no idea what Feedburner is going to do with that service, but I really encourage you to sign up for our email subscription instead. It’s only sent once per day when there’s a post, no spam, I never use your email address for anything else. I won’t even enter you into the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes!
If anyone has any questions or concerns about this whole thing, please don’t hesitate to email me.
Thanks for your patience!
