Blogger is run by Google, and the powers that be at Google have decided to discontinue the “follow by e-mail” widget that allows readers like you to follow bloggers like me. It will be disappearing sometime this summer.
I know, I know. It’s horrible. Devastating, even. Now my articles won’t go directly to your inbox.
Don’t worry; I’m working on a solution. In the meantime, please pause right now to bookmark my blog. That way, you’ll be able to navigate back here without the aid of the e-mails that will no longer be coming your way.
If you want to continue to receive my articles in your inbox, please e-mail me at email@example.com, and put “Send me your articles” in the subject line. I will add you to a list to e-mail my blog articles to. I will never sell your contact information; it will only be used to bring you my articles. This is a temporary fix until I get the other solution going, but I’ll keep you posted in the e-mails as well as here about that.
Remember to come back and visit often, whether or not you opt in to have me e-mail you the articles. I usually have a new article up every Monday, but you know that this year has been hit and miss on that. Chalk it up to post-WuVi short-term memory loss, please. Goodness, but that thing’s awful! I think I’m getting better, and then — WHAM! — I find out I’ve forgotten something else again.
One of these days, my memory really will return to full-capacity functionality, I just know it.
Or at least I hope it.
I’m terribly sorry that the “follow by e-mail” option is going away. It’s not in my control, but finding a good work-around is. Please come back and visit me soon, because I am hoping to have some great news later this summer about said work-around. I can’t yet share, but something big is in the works.
In fact, there might be more than one big announcement this summer. Stay tuned!
Thank you all so much for your support over the years. I’m hoping you’ll continue to visit the site despite Google’s removing the helpful “send this to your inbox” options. You guys are so precious to me, and I appreciate every comment y’all leave for me. I’m always excited when y’all visit; you have no idea how much y’all make my day when you do.
Do you want to read my debut book?
Anything is now available! Here’s the link to the paperback version.
Want to start your collection of stainless steel, reusable coffee tumblers and water bottles? DrinCo offers many colors in several styles of travel tumblers.
I’m now an affiliate with DrinCo, which means I’ll earn a small commission on every purchase made through this link. Purchasing a tumbler from DrinCo is a great way to support me in my writing career.
These tumblers are made responsibly in China, which means the company uses only high-quality materials and pays the laborers a fair wage plus overtime.
There are currently no stainless steel travel mugs made in the United States.

I hope this doesn’t impact your blog too much, Andrea!
Thank you so much for your support, Katja. Thankfully, the blog still goes out on Goodreads when I post articles, now that I've got the two linked up.
I put a follow button on my blog when I realized email was going to be discontinued. I lost some of my original followers but gained some new ones as well.
Thanks for the tip, Cindy!
