We’re changing email service providers

Our current email service, Feedburner, has been problematic for the past few weeks. Not all of our readers are getting their daily updates, and there was one day when nobody got an update. We decided it was time to make a change, and we’re switching over to MailChimp within the next few days.

If you’re already a Feedburner subscriber, your email address has been transferred from Feedburner to MailChimp, and you should continue to receive your daily updates without interruption. For a day or two, you may be getting duplicate emails. I apologize in advance for this inconvenience. Once everything has “populated,” (in computer lingo, that means adding information to a computer file, and there can sometimes be a lag time), the old Feedburner emails will simply stop sending.

Please white list our email address or add to your “safe sender” list

Email can be tricky these days, with many ISPs directing even legitimate emails into spam folders. Please make sure that you white list our email address, consciouscat @ cox.net (without the spaces) or add it to your “safe sender” list.

A special note for Gmail subscribers

If you’re a Gmail subscriber, our emails may not be delivered to your primary inbox. Check your “Promotions” folder, then drag this email from the “Promotions” tab to the “Primary” tab. A small alert will pop up. Click “yes” and that’s it!  From now on our emails will continue to go to your “Primary” inbox.

New features with MailChimp

MailChimp offers some nice new features. For starters, it looks prettier. One thing that I think a lot of you will like is that the new emails will have a direct link for you to comment on our posts. Simply click “Leave a comment” in your email, and it will take you directly to our site.

The new email format also offers social media share and like buttons, and we hope you use them frequently.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this change, and thank you for your patience as we go through this transition.

Ruby: Can I play with the monkey?

Allegra: Oh Ruby, you’re so silly. The monkey is not real. It’s called a logo.

Ruby: Logo? What a fun word! Logo logo logo! Wee!!! Watch out Allegra, I’m going to logo you!

Allegra: Sigh.
