Update on Email Subscriptions for my Blog

With many thanks to Mimi, blog owner of Woven By Words, it was brought to my attention that there may be a glitch in my email subscriptions.

I did have two ways in which you could subscribe to my blog via email - Feedburner and Mail Chimp.  For now, I am ceasing subscriptions on the latter.  For whatever reason, Mail Chimp would sometimes redirect people to my old blog domain, which happens to be owned by a semi-sorta spam site of tattoos and half-naked peeps.  So, here's the bullet point rundown:

1.  I've gotten rid of Mail Chimp.  I hope I don't lose many subscribers because of that but it's necessary.

2.  Please subscribe to my blog via Feedburner.  There's a "subscribe to my blog via email" link at the left hand side of my blog where you can do that.

3.  Don't buy your domain from GoDaddy!  That's my personal experience, at least.  They're the ones who caused me to have to buy a different domain name in the first place.  My old domain expired a couple years ago, I wasn't notified, and I was bought out by a different "parked" site.  (Which, coincidentally enough, has GoDaddy ads!)  I hope I'm wrong, but it leads me to believe that GoDaddy is super shady.

Thanks to Mimi for pointing this out.  I hope you'll subscribe to me via Feedburner.  If email isn't your thing, there's also Bloglovin and Google+.

What's your experience with GoDaddy?
Through which avenues do you follow my blog?

I do look at your blog each day since I also realize sometimes I do not get emails.
