A Notice To Subscribers (And To Everyone Else, Too)
A number of people subscribe to this blog - "We Live In A Political World." Thank you for that! I have been making daily postings to this blog for over eleven years, and I am happy to think that somebody might be reading what I write.
There is an upcoming "problem," however. The "Follow by Email" option, shown in the screenshot above, and visible on the blog, has utilized a service called "Feedburner," operated by Google. Frankly, I don't really understand how it works, but if you have signed up, using that "Follow by Email" widget, you will have been getting an email link to the blog each time I author a new blog posting. That, at least, is the way it has been!
I am sorry to report that this Feedburner service will disappear soon (sometime in August, I am now told).
That means, if you would like to continue to get an emailed version of my blog postings, that you need to do something. I would suggest doing it now, following the directions below.
If you don't subscribe to this blog, but think that maybe you would like to subscribe (and I certainly encourage that), please follow the directions below:
How To Sign Up To Receive Blog Postings
#1 - Go to the "Follow-It" Website (just click this link).
#2 - Fill in the following URL in the blank provided: www.gapatton.net. Then hit "Go."
#3 - On the next page (it will come up automatically), hit "Next."
#4 - On the page that comes up, select "Single Emails," and then type in YOUR email at the bottom of the page.
#5 - Finally, hit the "Follow It" button at the bottom of that same page.
#6 - Confirm your choice when you get an email in your inbox.
That's it! I have tried this myself, and I had no problems.
Thanks for reading "We Live In A Political World!"
