I Restored the Option to Subscribe to Receive Articles by Email

On March 14, I removed the option to subscribe to receive articles by email. Today, I restored that option.

I did this despite what I said before. Why? Because it doesn’t cost me anything now, not even my time. My latest bout of depression ended a few days ago and I decided to make things a little easier for everyone.

I’m Not Restoring Email Subscriptions

I deleted the list of email addresses when I removed the option. Although I looked at them a few times, I don’t have a photographic memory.

I don’t think it’s a good idea for me to keep any kind of information when it isn’t needed. I recently deleted thousands of files on an external hard drive for exactly that reason.

Email from FeedBurner

I redirected my feed to FeedBurner and enabled email subscriptions at the same time. Both links in the footer below will take you to FeedBurner.

I tried to get rid of all third-party services. I really did. When I decided to switch to a pure AMP website, I no longer had that choice.

I’ve used other third-party services for both the feeds and the email. The only third-party service that isn’t a pain to use is FeedBurner. I realize Google could shut down FeedBurner at any given time, even without much notice. That’s okay with me and I’ll cross that bridge when they do.

Perspective

Instead of removing things that bother me, I need to change them. On the other hand, some things absolutely have to be removed. I won’t go into details, but I’ve removed things no one should have to see. Not even me.

I converted this website to the AMP format and I need to do that with Music Notes. I stopped working on that website when I started redesigning this one.

I’m planning to move other articles to yet another website, when I get caught up. It’s going to take me a while to get caught up.
