Mancat Monday:  One Blog Problem Down, One to Go with Brian

mancat monday brian 05082023

Happy Mancat Monday everyone!  Before I start, I want to remind everyone in the U.S. that this Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Whatever you do, don’t forget your Mama.  Now then, we’ve been busy trying to solve a frustrating blog problem for those of you who subscribe to get our new blog posts via email.  The plugin we use had a major issue whereby the evil ones could gain access to our behind the scenes blog works.  That’s not good, especially because the author of the plugin had yet to fix the problem.  So, we deleted it and started hunting for a new plugin.

It was a difficult search, some that we checked out were really difficult to setup and use, some of the others were too invasive and weren’t good for your privacy as subscribers.  We finally found one we like and those of you who subscribe by email should now be receiving our new blog post email every morning.  So, that solves one problem and we have one to go.  We now need to replace the one over at The Cat Blogosphere so the subscribers over there can once again start getting the posts via email too. I know lots of you have been through the hunt for a good newsletter plugin, it’s quite challenging.

Okay, that’s it for me today, catch you later!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Well done Brian – one problem solved and one more to go….life is like that sometimes isn’t it! I would never forget Mother’s Day – that’s the lady who feeds me every single day and brushes me and takes me outside and doesn’t yell at me when I accidentally scratch her!

Hugs, Teddy

I sub your content in Feedly. I used to have email sub function, but after blogger stopped the service, I could only use free version of MailChamp, which now want to charge the service…so I let it go.

Brian, you and your dad are evidently computer smart. Congratulations on figuring out something that I wouldn’t have even known was wrong.

There is always something with websites. We wish things could just be set up and run forever, but that isn’t the case. We noticed we were not getting your posts, but it seems to work now.

Gosh that sounds very complicated, I did think it odd your newsletters stopped so will resubscribe, it’s something we’ve not got on our blog except for the basic blogger version about new posts so I’d best find out if it’s still working. We’d love to be able to send out newsletters but it’s all far to technical for our humum to master xxx

Brian – thanks for the reminder about Mother’s Day!

Don’t you wonder why tech things are changing, or stop working? I always think “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” but obviously someone somewhere is much smarter than me!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
