I’ve been very happy using Mailchimp, and would recommend them highly to anyone looking for a maillist provider. But I have run across one small glitch which subscribers need to be aware of.
We’re reaching a moment where the first wave of subscriptions are expiring. If the credit card number you have on file with Amazon is no longer valid because it was lost or stolen or it expired or whatever, you will be automatically unsubscribed. If this happens, and you want to resubscribe, email me first (tomtomorrow at gmail). I need to manually delete your account before you re-up, otherwise you’ll get caught in the aforementioned glitch which will keep unsubscribing you even once your Amazon cc info is updated.
And if you’re reading this note and wondering, “What is this ‘Sparky’s List,’ about which I have heard so much?” — well, I’m glad you asked.
