Once upon a time, weekly mailings of all Tech Talk posts were going out as scheduled. Then, they suddenly vanished! There was troubleshooting, software updating, testing, but alas, no mailings appeared. The Webchix at High Aspirations, Inc. were distraught.OK, we weren’t really distraught. We were annoyed! A WordPress plugin that we had used for years had failed us. We were now searching for a replacement. We found MailChimp.
MailChimp offers a Forever Free plan for up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 mailings a month. The free plan will let me test MailChimp’s service, features, and support. Those features are nice, including an RSS driven option that suits Tech Talk perfectly. I refuse to post all over the place – post once, publish many – that’s my motto for blogging. I post on Tech Talk and they show up on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and once again, in your inbox!
Starting today, High Aspirations, Inc.’s Tech Talk mailings will be powered by MailChimp. All subscribers have been moved to MailChimp. Anyone not already receiving mailings is welcome to subscribe.
Crossing fingers that this is the solution, the final solution!
