Bye bye MailChimp

This post is also available in : French German Italian

I meditated a lot on the question with Claire, but also without her :

After some intense meditation sessions, I made the following decision : bye bye MailChimp !

After several years, we’ll leave MailChimp to send our new articles on August 1st ; indeed, a tool on our site allows us to do the same thing (with a simpler design, certainly), and we don’t need all the other features of MailChimp that we’ve never used.

What about your data (email addresses) ? They will be deleted by us before closing the account ; moreover, once a MailChimp account is deleted, all account data is deleted and cannot be recovered. (source : MailChimp).

If you want to continue to receive our news in your mailboxes, just check the corresponding box by leaving a comment ; you can also always continue to follow us with your WordPress account if you have one.

If you have a blog, do you use a third-party tool to inform your readers of your new posts, or do you use a tool already built into your platform ?

    We use the Plug-In Subscribe2 on our WP blog to send notification of our posts. We had a little trouble with it a while back with one of their updates, but it all works now. These are adorable photos of Pixie. So happy you’ll still be around. Calista Jo sends Zorro some kisses.

    We luvs visits from Pixie and Zorro and don’t want to miss out (oh, and you ~ too, Ms Claire) so will definitely check the box [X] … we’re not super-happy with our subscriber service (it’s follow-it) but don’t work with wordpress which seems to offer the best one. So, we’re still looking for another … take care friends,

    I definitely want to get your blog but I am afraid that won’t happen. Mail Chimp IS reliable. Hoping you aren’t using “FollowIt” or whatever the name is……that just stores the blogs in a list and I NEVER, EVER go to lists to read blogs. I use MailChimp and some people get our blog, some don’t.

    We just use WordPress features to follow our friends AND to notify them when we do a new post. Probably not as efficient as some other ways but that’s what my Mom does and she’s “THE MOM” who makes the decisions around here!

    Hugs, Teddy

    It’s always sad to say goodbye to stuff like tools we use but sometimes, I guess, it’s for the best.

    Scratch that. It’s ALMOST always say to say goodbye to stuff like tools we use. I could sure do with Peepers sayin’ goodbye to the vacuum. That wouldn’t be sad at all. purrs
