Bye bye MailChimp

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 ?

Best wishes for Christmas

Two weeks ago, Momo decorated the tree while Claire was making the first batch of cookies (the second was made yesterday).

We’e already received a lot of beautiful cards by snail mail or e-mail, which makes us very happy : thank you very much to all those who sent them to us !

Finally, yesterday (23), we got a package from our friends at the Poupounette Gang : there was a lot of presents and treats for Claire and for us, including a Yeowww Nip Cigar : Zorro didn’t resist !

We wish you a happy holiday season and a very merry Christmas with those you love.

Our certificate has arrived !

We’re very happy and proud to announce you that two months ago, the Cat Writers’ Association has awarded us a Certificate of Excellence for our article about the arrival of a baby in a family with already a cat (English version).

It’s finally arrived two weeks ago in our mailbox, right for Claire’s birthday !

The Cat Writers’ Association, Inc. (CWA) is a professional group composed of writers, bloggers, photographers, artists, and broadcasters, all passionate cat advocates.

We regularly share our daily routine with you, but we also work hard to publish one or two “serious” articles each year. We translate them ourselves from our mother tongue, French, which is why we’re very very proud of this distinction !
