Blog Maintenance: New Subscription Manager

0

Hi all. For a while the blog has used Feedburner.com to keep track of subscriber stats and to handle email subscriptions. Unfortunately, Feedburner has basically been dead in the water for some time. Recently Google announced it would drop support the email subscription feature altogether. 

So, as of today, I have switched the ETC blog over to Follow.it to handle both features. If you currently receive the blog by email, I am working on moving your email over. So far, I’ve managed to migrate the most recent 100 subscribers but I’m waiting on someone on their staff to do the rest. (Update: All is now migrated.) If you don’t want to wait, you can always subscribe with this link—unless you’re a robot. Your ETC emails will now be delivered through Follow.it which gives you some control over how and when you get them. 

I’ve also updated the RSS icon at the top of the page to point you to Follow.it. The email subscription form in the sidebar does the same. If you want to bypass Follow.it altogether, you can still do that using the Atom link. If none of this means anything to you, you might be a robot.

Please let me know if you spot problems.
