Important! I’m Changing My Blog Updates Delivery Service!



Hi My Stampin’ Pretty Readers:

Feedburner, the newsletter/email delivery service I have used for the last six years for sharing my daily Stampin’ Pretty blog updates by email and RSS feed, is not working properly and my research indicates it may be shutting down altogether, with little or no notice. While many of my subscribers are still getting updates, many are not. My advice earlier this week to unsubscribe and resubscribe if you were having problems, unfortunately, did not resolve the issue.

In order to reactivate service for those subscribers who aren’t getting my blog updates and avoid a future Feedburner shutdown of delivery for those who are, I made the decision yesterday to move the email and RSS delivery service to Feedblitz (yep, all 11,000 of you), a much more stable and predictable provider.

Many of you received an email from me yesterday (through Feedblitz–the new provider) transferring your subscription from Feedburner to Feedblitz.  If you received it, you don’t need to do anything further.  You should be good to go with updates (starting today) unless you opted out.  For the next week, you may get duplicates of my blog updates because both feeds (Feedburner and Feedblitz) will be temporarily active until this transition is complete. You can unsubscribe to the Feedburner account at any time (at the bottom of a Feedburner delivery update) but I will be shutting down Feedburner permanently after May 2, 2014 and any duplicate updates should end automatically. If you have any questions or problems, please don’t hesitate to email me at [email protected].  I’m here to help.

IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL TRANSFER TO FEEDBLITZ YESTERDAY, you simply need to subscribe to delivery of my blog updates through Feedblitz HERE.  If you aren’t sure whether you already subscribed or are active, you can try to subscribe at the same link and it will let you know if you are already active or step you through the subscription process if you haven’t.

To ensure that the updates you want actually reach your inbox, please add the FeedBlitz email address — [email protected] — to your email white list (or address book) now.

Thank you for your patience during this transition. I wanted to stay ahead of the curve on this and am confident you will see many more bloggers doing something similar as they learn what is happening.

  1. I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for choosing our platform. I know it was a rough week technology-wise for many people.

    It’s been atrocious for me at work with: the Typepad fun interrupting our ability to access feeds to deliver newsletters, spammers pretending to be affiliate marketers*, and I don’t know if it’s just me but on my blog the spam comment activity has gotten so bad I’m going to have to moderate everything. It is intensely frustrating.

    Anyhow, I’m glad you chose us and truly hope it’s nothing but smooth sailing from here.

    *Affiliate marketing is not a bad thing, in fact we have an affiliate program, but some of the schemes out there are just obnoxious.

  2. Oh Mary, as long as I can keep getting your blog posts every morning, any service you use is great. With all of the mess you went through with Type Pad…..well, it’s better to forget about it.
    I had a bit of trouble with Brian’s blog since yesterday, I couldn’t post my comments, they just disappeared, PUFF!! into Cyber Space, sheeeesh!! So I wrote to him this morning to see if he could fix it or check it out for me and he did, he said that one of my comments was “Flagged” as Spam, goodness!! I don’t even know what spam is, LOL!! But now it’s all fixed and I’m so happy.
    Anyway my dear, thanks for all you do every day Mary and have a wonderful weekend.
    Many Hugs.
