Moving My Blog

 After still trying to figure out the subscription thing with MailChimp and never having success, I've decided to go ahead and use my WordPress account and start blogging there. This is my new blog address


Please go ahead and subscribe if you like and if you decide not to I understand. I have it set that you don't need a WordPress account to comment.

This blog will remain up for as long as Google will allow me since I follow Google Blogs are here.  I also will be turning off comments to this blog at the end of the week to make sure no one is having issues with subscribing to the new blog.

Book Review- Let Me Die in Ireland by David Bercot


Let Me Die in Ireland by David Bercot is a historical fiction novel based on the life of  Patrick also know as St. Patrick whom many remember every March 17th. This book was definitely an eye opener for me because it changed everything I thought knew about Patrick. There are many myths out there that aren't true about him such as, he used the shamrock to explain salvation or that he drove all the snakes out of Ireland.  I also was encouraged by Patrick's constant prayer and I believe he was a strong prayer prayer warrior. 
This a very easy read and is available for purchase at ScrollPublishing.com
I received a copy of this book from Scroll Publishing in exchange for my review.

Well I Thought It Worked

 It turns out my dear friends that the MailChimp didn't work last time. My friend sent a screenshot of how my posts look in email and sure enough it said it was powered by Google. And some of you commented that Google was still sending the posts. And even though, I subscribed myself to my blog, I never received the test email I sent last time.  Long sigh. I hope to have this worked out by July 1st. You would think Google Blogger would have had another system ready to go into effect on when FeedBurner goes away.

I sure hope with all these changes with Blogger, Google isn't planning on shutting down Blogger all together. I read older articles online and they say there isn't a plan to shut down Blogger. It seems I heard the same thing about Yahoo and Yahoogroups. Remember Yahoogroups? Yahoo said they had no plans to shut down Yahoogroups after they discontinued certain features a couple of years ago, but Yahoogroups closed permanently on December 15th, 2020. So we who use Google for our blogs need to keep an eye on what's happening with the future of Blogger.

Well it's back to the drawing board and figure out my problem. I have a book review I need to post so I hope to get that up today.

Testing New Service for Email Subscribers Only-Please This is NOT Spam!

 Okay so I've saved email blog subscribers to my Kindle and I've moved them all ( I hope) to my new service MailChimp. I also deleted most if not all email addresses that had @outlook.com because they were spam addresses. I might have accidentally deleted legitimate subscribers though.  So those of you get my posts by email if I did this correctly, should receive this and at the end of the email or somewhere part of my address appears. Due to International Anti Spam laws addresses have to be in all emaild. If you get newsletters from various companies, you will notice their email is at the end of their email and this is why.

 I've removed the FeedBurner subscribe button from my blog page. However I haven't the foggiest idea how to add the new MailChimp subscribe button to my page. I hope to figure that out too.

So I've done what another blogger has done and subscribed to my own blog to see if MailChimp works.  

This is what I need the email subscribers to do. Click on the link that takes you to this blog entry and just comment that you got it AND that  it says MailChimp somewhere in the body or at the end.

Thanks sisters!
