The good news: It looks as if you won't need to resubscribe so I'm deleting the old list. The duplicate email should disappear in a day or two. If you find that for some reason you are not receiving your newsletters, please just resubscribe in the right margin here on www.mindingorueldersblogs.com. I don't expect that to happen, but tech is, well tech.
The growing pains:
*Speaking of tech, it's showing its underwear in the top panel with a bunch of gibberish. That should be gone by your next email.
* Also, I'm working on a second option for a digest. In a few days, those of you who want this version should be able to choose that and unsubscribe from the daily version. This is a work in progress so please be patient. Thank you!
Tomorrow: Back to caregiving posts which is why we're here.
Big hug to you all.
NOTE: Yesterday's announcement is repeated below for anyone who missed it.
Just a note to tell you I'm in the process of updating the newsletter format. While the newer version should be visually more pleasant, the biggest benefit will be to allow you to alter your email preferences. This means that you'll be able to choose a digest form rather than the daily emails that many prefer.
The downside is that you'll need to resubscribe to continue receiving the Minding Our Elders newsletter. It's not hard. You'll receive a confirmation email just as you did when you originally signed up. Then, you'll need to confirm, but in the process, you can make your preferences known, which is a good thing.
I wanted to give you some warning so you're not wondering what happened when instead of a newsletter, you are asked to confirm your subscription. Once confirmed, things should carry on as usual.
Since in the real world, few such changes are seamless, feel free to message me through the contact form on www.mindingourlders.com if you have trouble receiving your newsletter or making the choices that you want. Always remember that until things smooth out, you can simply go to www.mindingoureldersblogs.com to read daily updates.
I'll be disabling the old newsletter in a few days so don't worry if you receive both of them for now. This is just to give people time to adjust. However, feel free to unsubscribe from the old one because emails can be annoying even when temporary!
Thank you so much for being a part of the Minding Our Elders community. I appreciate each of you!
