Are you following my blog via Email?

To all of you that Follow by Email -

I received this message recently:

FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner) is going away. 

You are receiving this information because your blog uses the FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner). 
Recently, the Feedburner team released a system update announcement, that the email subscription service will be discontinued in July 2021

After July 2021, your feed will still continue to work, but the automated emails to your subscribers will no longer be supported. If you’d like to continue sending emails, you can download your subscriber contacts. 

For the time being, I have decided to leave the the feed as is. That means it will be unsupported as of July but may still work. I certainly hope it continues to work, especially because it affects so many people. There are 1323 people that follow my blog via email. I am shocked! 

I use for my blog and to keep track of the blogs I follow. Anyone can create a blog there (there are no rules stating that you must post) and then you will have access to the Reading List where you can add and keep track of the blogs you follow. Personally, I prefer that to email because I already get many, many emails and with blogger, I can check the Reading List when I have time and see blog posts in most recent post order. You may want to check into blogger or another subscription service.

The only people who like change are wet babies.

  1. I too use the reader list on the blog. I really need to go in and update it though and add a few more =). Hope you are having a good weekend. You sure have been busy and productive making quilts.

  2. I hope you are right, Jeanne! I would love for the emails to continue. It's the ONLY way that I remember all of the blogs I follow! I will be checking into that Blogger Reading List thing, though. Another friend suggested that, as well.

  3. I haven't even started to figure out this problem. I agree with the last line of your post (wet babies).
