If you've been trying to sign-up for my email announcements, you should read this post. If you already get emails from me, you can ignore this post and go back to reading your favorite book!

Lots has been going on behind the scenes here on the blog/website. I was alerted by a friend recently that the sign-up box for my automatic email updates on the blog wasn’t working correctly. She kept getting an error that the MailPoet server couldn’t be reached when trying to sign-up. I tested it several times and it always worked for me, so I thought it was an intermittent problem. But I contacted the company I bought the plugin from and they advised me that the form was probably having caching problems! Ugh! I now wonder how many people have been trying to sign up and getting errors!

Anyway, I switched over the form yesterday and now I’m getting a lot more sign-ups than I’ve ever had since I ported over to this new system. Double ugh. I have a feeling many people have been trying to use it and it wasn’t working. Now I’m also stuck in a conundrum because I see lots of people signing up and not confirming their subscription in the double opt-in. I see that the Amazon email system is actually sending these emails, so I hope those people are getting them.

If you’re one of the people who has been trying to sign-up to my updates but failing, you’re welcome to comment on this post or contact me personally. I’ll figure out how I can help you!
