On getting an alert from Cheerful Monk, I too decided to shift my ‘advice by email of posts’ from Feedburner to MailChimp.

Thanks to a resident geek in the form of my son Ranjan’s help, I was able to accomplish this last night. Those of my readers who have opted to get advice by email of my posts will get advice of this post and all future posts via MailChimp.

I request my readers to please go back a few posts on this blog to assure themselves that they have not missed any of my earlier posts due to a glitch in Feedburner.

  1. Rummuser, the process of accessing your post from Mailchimp has not been easy. So far, the one way I can get to your blog is to type your name in my browser and go from there. Mailchimp required that I sign up, password and all, but when I click on the image, there are many steps, and I have yet to find your blog. Since Cheerful Monk did the same thing, (went with Mailchimp) I can’t access her blog either! I may need to phone my tech to get this cleared up. Meanwhile, I’ll keep typing your name (and CM) into the browser and get you that way.

    1. You’re in luck! I’ve just spent a good part of a couple of days getting set up at MailChimp. Unless you want to use MailChimp to send out notices to your subscribers you don’t have to worry about them. You should be receiving a message from every day I publish a new post.

      The message should have the content (hopefully this will show up correctly here):

      1. Thanks, CM. Your message via Rummuser showed up beautifully, with a live link to your website. But unfortunately, it does not appear to be live in the email from Mailchimp. So I’ll bag this for now, until I can talk to my tech, and I’ll paste your address in my browser window for now. Thank you Rummuser for allowing us to use your site!!

    2. I am sorry to hear about that Diane. Some other adjustments had to be made at the back end which I am now told have been done and you should have no problems with it in the future. All that you have to do is to subscribe once and you will get notifications regularly every time I post.

  2. i re~subscribed in case i needed to… but it said i was already a subscriber! cool.
    although i always get notification of posts (not just yours but most others too) a day or so late.
    don’t know why. it’s always been that way regardless of the type of subscription.
    maybe something to do with my own mail.

    1. My notifications come right away, so I don’t think it’s MailChimp. But I agree, I check my favorite sites every day in my Bookmarks Toolbar and don’t use the notifications. The tooolbar gives me more information more easily.

  3. Hi Rummy,

    I like the change. I have been looking at alternatives to feedburner too, and there are so many interesting options out there; but as a hopeless Googlette I am giving feedburner a chance: if Google doesn’t improve it in the next six months or so, I may change too.
    But yours looks great.
