If you haven’t been getting emails…

If you haven’t been getting email notifications of my posts, there’s a reason for that.


The simple answer is: technical difficulties.


The long answer is:


I stopped getting email notifications for my blog posts about a month ago, and a few times, randomly, before that. I thought maybe it was just because I was the administrator, or because WordPress was acting up. (I haven’t been getting notifications of my comments either. Still haven’t figured that out.)


It wasn’t. *insert my screaming face*


When I first set up my subscription form, apparently I had to pick which categories would send out post notifications. (Obviously, I wanted all of them, so I clicked on all of them.) As I kept blogging, I created new categories, and… I didn’t add them to my subscription form.


And I was wondering why my pageviews/comments had dropped!


I figured out that my emails hadn’t been sending when I was baking, and took out my righteous wrath on the cookie bar. And growled at anyone and everyone who tried to talk to me. My mom can testify to this. ; )


AND THEN I FIGURED OUT IT WASN’T ME, IT WAS THE SUBSCRIPTION FORM I WAS USING. *bangs head against wall* Apparently some people had been using it to spam, so it was blocked or something…




I got set up with Mailchimp, which seems infinitely better than the… thing… I was using. Hopefully it’s all fixed now. (We’ll see, as soon as I publish this post!)


I am really, really sorry about this! It probably looked like I stopped blogging for almost a month. :\


I tried to put together a list of the majority of the posts that I think didn’t send. (although I’m not really sure.) Hopefully this wasn’t an inconvenience to you, and please don’t feel like you have to read all of them. (:

So, talk to me! Have you been getting emails? Did you get this email? (please, oh please, say yes!)


P.S. In case you didn’t catch it, I’m going on a short blogging break for the rest of September. Find the details here. (^.^)
