This is my first official post since I made the switch from hosting memo2munch on wordpress.com to self-hosting. And as with any big change, little adjustments have to be made!
Like with subscriptions, for example. Yay complications!
You see, I’m now using a third party service to send out emails about new posts because it allows me to personalize the emails, format them however I want, and control when they are sent out. However, when I transferred my followers over from the wordpress.com blog, it copied the followers who subscibed via email.
If you subscibed via email prior to August 2014, you probably received 2 email messages notifying you of this post.
One should be from Memo2munch, and the other should be from WordPress.
Unfortunately, because you all subscribed of your own accord, I am not authorized to go in an remove you from the WordPress list. However, I can give you instructions so that you can remove yourselves from the WordPress list, and receive only email updates from Memo2munch. DON’T WORRY! IT’S SUPER EASY AND TAKES 2 SECONDS! This does not apply to WordPress account followers or followers who subscribed after August 20, 2014.
How to remove yourself from the WordPress subscriber list*:
1. Open up the email you received from WordPress notifying you about this post.
2. At the bottom of the email in a gray, shaded area, you should see the text “Unsubscribe to no longer receive posts from Memo2munch.” Click on unsubscribe.
*This will not remove you from the Memo2munch subscriber list
I know I’ve been kind of MIA recently…The transition took a lot of time and work, and classes have just started back up here at IU. Once things calm down a little, I will be back to posting regularly and we can GET THIS SHOW OF AWESOMENESS ON THE VIRTUAL ROAD.
PS To make up for everything, here’s a picture of prairie dogs taking a family portrait.
