Is this thing working?


So for the last 48 hours, the lovely lady who manages the technical side of my blog, and I have been working like crazy to find a solution to why my blog isn’t automatically emailing everyone who subscribes.

Yesterday I spent hours on a ‘live chat’ with someone who was less than no use. Today however, I’ve been on a live chat with someone far more knowledgeable….

So I’m keeping all bits crossed and praying really hard that their end is now fixed and this blog post is going to zap around the world and land in everyone’s emails…
