Email Subscriptions

I've used Bloglet as the email subscription service for the blog for over a year. Unfortunately, it's stopped working and I haven't been able to troubleshoot the problem. It did a reasonable job for a while and it was free, but I have to move on.

Another service, FeedBlitz, is supposed to be much more reliable, so I've set that up. (Another advantage is that it doesn't send out draft posts to email subscribers, something I've always found annoying about Bloglet.)

If you want to subscribe by email (it's really convenient when it works!), see the link in the sidebar.

If you were a subscriber before, you should be carried over. You might want to take a look at the blog -- you probably missed about a week's worth of messages.

Technology gives us many opportunities, but it sometimes creates new frustrations as well. Even with a few glitches like this, though, a blog is still a much easier way to distribute information to a wide audience than, say, running off a bunch of dittos.
