Permission to Opt-in for Email Notifications from Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles!

Email notifications for a blog post can go into a spam box if you are not careful

Oh spam… how do I hate thee… let me count the ways…

Once again my love/hate relationship with technology continues. I marvel at the endless capabilities at our fingertips to make our lives easier, yet ironically all this convenience seems to cost more time in the long run. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel nearly every day I am wasting away precious minutes of my life as I try to fix whatever glitch, upgrade, conversion, or whatever else that crops up out of nowhere to make what was running smoothly one day, now an inexplicable living nightmare the next.

Point in case, I’ve been blogging since 2010 and since then I’ve had numerous readers who voluntarily subscribed to receive email notifications from me when I post a new blog piece. I’ve now been told by many of them, that these notifications are currently landing in their spam boxes. I’ve done nothing different, nor have they, yet the problem now exists.

Without properly setting up email notifications they can go into spam boxes

It’s been kind of lonely here at Zee & Zoey’s, but with readers not getting our email notifications, we understand!

Sigh. Anyhow, much as this pains me, and trust me, it does, I now have to inconvenience all of you that have so graciously signed up for notifications and ask you to do it again by clicking this subscription link to re-enter your email address to signify you have opted in for notifications.

I apologize profusely in advance – this is going to be a long and drawn out process – after all, isn’t that what technology’s all about? I’ll be switching from my current WordPress notification to MailChimp – a service which is supposed to be much more reliable and spam-proof to send out notifications and I’ll need to be contacting everyone on my subscription list for approval. In the interim, you will continue to get notifications they way you used to until I can get everything resolved.

To make it easier, you can just re-subscribe today right from here and I don’t need to torture your inbox with yet another annoying email! If you don’t, I might be sending you a friendly reminder!! In the long run, it’s all good. All of us at Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles want to make sure you’ll still be getting the latest and greatest from us – whether it’s our trademark gorgeous kitty pictures, reflective posts, product reviews or more – we love having you around to share our day!

A cat apologizes for the inconvenience of having to subscribe for email notifications

Jazmine – you brighten anyone’s day. Who would not want to see a picture of your sweet face?

Thank you again – as always, we appreciate your support and look forward to many days ahead!

    I re-subscribed as asked, but I have no problem getting your mail correctly. They have always gone into my *proper* e-mail inbox. . . ♥♥♥

  2. We feel your pain, we had the same problem here. And as you landed often in our spam folder, we follow you since a few months with Feedly 😉 Purrs

  3. Jo Singer says:

    I wouldn’t opt out fo all the catnip in the world. We love this website and all the wonderful stories and great information that you share!

    It would be grossly inconvenient to have to search for your work!!

    Hugs to you!!!

    No problem, I found you in spam but it was very easy to use the button, NOT SPAM! I think it’s because I see alot of blogs my security catches as reported for stealing account info. I was flabbergasted by some, no longer receive them to my dismay, but my email has been hacked 3 times!!I will gladly help and click the link and enter my email to you!!

    • Deb says:

      Thanks Connie – believe it or not, a lot of the people that have had the spam issues did use the NOT SPAM button and still had problems!! Yikes on the hacking!!!

  5. Sue Brandes says:

    I re-subscribed. Glad to do it.

  6. Flynn says:

    I don’t subscribe by email, but have you in my Feedly reader so no problems here.

  7. Well, the email with this post was in our spam folder. We re-subscribed as you requested, but we’re a little confused because it said it was for weekly updates.

    • Deb says:

      Sigh… darn spam! Anyhow, sorry about the weekly update confusion. The heading has been changed to “Subscribe to updates.” Thanks for pointing that out, Island Cats!

  8. Christine Michaels says:

    No worries. Technology is not perfect. Nothing is.
    I go to your blog regardless.

  9. Brian Frum says:

    We sure know what a pain those problems are but everyone will follow you anywhere!!!

  10. Ellen Pilch says:

    It wasn’t an inconvenience, I signed up again.

  11. Yes, technology takes a LOT of time. Sounds like you have this under control. Or at least all figured out.

  12. Deziz World says:

    We’s’ll sign up after we leave this comment. We just don’t unnerstand technology at all. We don’t think it made things easier so much and fur sure didn’ really cut down on paperwork. MOL So now what else did they claim wuld make it so wunnerful? Oh yeah, we kuld have lots of wunnerful luvvin’ carin’ furiends. Well at least they was right ’bout dat one.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

    Technology. Can’t live with it and certainly can’t live without it. We don’t subscribe to any blogs cos we get enough email but we do have our fave blogs including yours in Bloglovin.

  14. meowmeowmans says:

    We have you in our Feedly reader list, so we always get notifications whenever you have a new post. 🙂

  15. We read you through Feedly. You wouldn’t believe our emailbox already. We don’t want notifications from our friends to get lost in that mess!

  16. We haven’t signed up for any email notifications for blogs because our inbox is already overwhelmed. We hope you get through everything,

  17. Peep #1 has a love-hate relationship with technology. She loves to hate it, for sure. MOUSES!
