I'm not alone in this, either. Author April Brown says: " I remember when blogging was the thing that authors had to do. It was annoying. And it meant so many extra emails (kinda like newsletters), or going through a list to see who had updated every single day. It was a lot of work for authors and readers. Searching blogs was never easy either. I don't really think newsletters are the wave of the future. They are lots of extra work for readers and writers. Hours for every single one of them. They aren't searchable. As well as, readers (and writers) can't go to one place to easily update on everyone they wanted to hear from. ...How the different legal regulations affect the ability to send and receive them."
So what does all this mean? It's this...I love and appreciate those who've signed up for my newsletter. Thank you very much for that. But since I no longer will be writing those, here's what I want to do - I want to make this blog, Feeling Nosey?, serve as my newsletter.
How will I do that?
Well, see this "subscribe" button to the left?
Feedburner delivers postings from this blog straight to your inbox, unlike a NL that goes to that annoying 'Promotions' folder in Gmail. Those who've signed up for the newsletter I'll add your address to this subscription list. You'll receive a confirmation email to make sure you wish to continue. I hope you'll click that, because I sure do want to keep you!
But that does mean you'll also receive every post that's made here. True, they're mostly Nosey related but I will, from time to time, write as Miss Mae with my own "newsy" business -- just like this posting.
The pop-ups will remain, just to let newer folks know when they come to visit.
I'm curious, though... are there other authors besides April Brown and myself who feel this way? Hope you'll want to share your feelings. :)
And readers of my NLs, thank you for your continued support. I couldn't go on without you!
