Email’s Awesome, Email’s Weird!

Maybe a couple people might get that, but ah hell, it’s true!

It’s official. We have email subscription capabilities! Now you have more ways to get our daily…whatever it is we put up here, whether or not you can make it to the site. So, if you were into the feed thing, you can still subscribe to the feed, but if you think feed is what you give a horse and can’t figure out how that relates to blogs, you’re probably still a fan of email, so you can now
get updates by Email!

Don’t worry. If I go and go on a Cuppa Soup high and write a pile o posts, you won’t get a pile o email. You’ll just get one email once a day when you wake up. Unless the good folks at Feedburner get real lazy, they promise you should have it between 5:00 and 7:00 a.m. Eastern time.

This is a complete experiment. We have no idea what these emails will look like. Won’t you find out with us? Let us know what you think. If the consensus is that the service sucks monkey balls, we’ll try and switch providers.

A quick yea and boo session, because those are fun.
Yea! To Feedburner. I signed up to our own blog’s email service because I wanted to see what the signup process was like, and I found that even though they have those blasted graphical verification thingies, they have an audio alternative. Feedburner, I could kiss you! My only advice to blinks who want to sign up is wear headphones, silence your screen-reader as soon as possible and turn the volume up. It’s really…really…quiet. But I managed to sign up without headphones, but I think I was just lucky. Also, know that if you click the listen link again hoping to hear the same numbers, you get a fresh set of numbers. But the chains are short, so it shouldn’t be too bad to get them down.

Boo! To Feedblitz! Grrr! When you have a graphical verification system, and you have a nice link that says, blindies! click here to email support for help with this picture, it would be nice to um, respond when a blindy clicks the link some time this century. I would have liked them because they let us decide some things about the email that we don’t have control over with feedburner, but I would also like an account, and that wasn’t happening with ye old Feedblitz. So much love to Feedburner, you rock.

Hope you enjoy the new funky email gadget. Let us know what you think.

  2. >I had to read this a couple of times to make sure it said awesome instead of awful. We're not used to that around here. But hey, I think since we lost all the old comments there's actually more compliments than hatemail. Well, at least for now.

    Thanks for stopping bye.
