New Email Service for Southern Hospitality!

Hi, folks!

I’m hoping that the past problems of emails not being delivered might be over, with my newest decision.  I’ve gone with a paid email service that sends out emails to all my subscribers and switched my email service over from Feedburner where it’s been since the beginning of my blogging.  I’ve heard great things about Mad Mimi and so far, so good.  I just switched over from Feedburner emails this week and I like how it’s working so far.  IF you were one of my many readers who had problems getting emails delivered in the past, PLEASE sign up again.

There’s a fun surprise at the end of this post too, that I hope you’ll enjoy!

You’ll notice I have a new bar at the top of the blog, called a Hello bar and it gives folks the opportunity to sign up for my blog emails if you haven’t done so before.  All you have to do is enter your email in that box and you are done!  You’ll be getting all my emails from now on, every post that I do.  So even if you were subscribed before and you are not getting my emails consistently, I hope you’ll sign up again.  I don’t want to lose any of you along the way and Feedburner was becoming more and more unreliable and I didn’t have any solutions to fixing the problems.  So, hopefully this will do it!

Thank you all so much for your faithful reading of my blog. I appreciate it more than you will ever know!  There are countless sites you can read these days and the fact that you choose to come back and visit me day after day, means the world to me.

One more thing to share with you today!  When I was up in Nashville, I got a short segment on one of the local TV stations, the morning segment with Kacy Hagerty, the NBC affiliate.  I talked about blogging and gave a few tips on starting a blog.  It was so fun to do and we finally got a copy of the segment up on You Tube, so I can share with all of you.


Now, you can really hear my Southern accent!  Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Great video and you sound exactly as I thought you would, from one southern lady to another. I only started reading home décor/diy blogs probably last year and there are so many that it’s overwhelming. Yours in one I continue to enjoy. God Bless and best wishes to you in the future.

  2. Hi! Love your blog (that’s a real compliment coming from a Northeasterner transplanted to being a Southwesterner). Just a comment about the Hello Bar. It’s a real cool feature if you’re a first time visitor to the blog, but if you’ve already signed up, it’s intrusive as it floats at the top of you screen and limits the amount of screen you see. Is there a way to turn it off? If not, here should be. Just sayin’.

  3. W.O.W.
    Awesome job. You are so pretty and so articulate. I always thought you were “real”, but now I know for sure you are! I feel like I should be having coffee with you and telling you what a great job you did. Keep being REAL. ❤️

  4. You did a wonderful job and gave sound advice on blogging – well done!! The accent is just the icing on the cake! Congratulations!
