My experiments with Blogger and Substack are coming to an end. Neither was a good experience for either you or me, and the latter functioned more like social media, which I’m not fond of. Therefore, I decided to build a new site for my blog. With the help of my competent webmaster, Clay Showalter, I think we have it working well. It’s called About Amish and Beyond, and you can click on the link to go there.
I wanted to have all the blog posts for my new blog together in one place, so I’ve moved the posts I’d published on Blogger and Substack to the new site. Not many of you saw my latest one about Easter weekend, which I will post today.
A small portion of my subscriber list from this blog is getting moved to the new one. Those who have commented frequently over the past two years, and those who signed up in the past year are being moved over. If you receive or have received a notice from the post called “Before Dawn,” you are on the list. Otherwise, there is a sign-up form on every page of my website, and I invite you to sign up. Once you enter your name and email address, you should receive a prompt to go to your inbox (if you don’t find an email there, please check your spam folder). Once you click on the link in the email you receive, you should be ready to receive future emails, hopefully without any glitches. This method for signing up is called “double opt-in,” and is designed to keep the mailing list clean of spam emails. Fingers crossed!
This blog will stay active until I’m ready to publish a post that officially ends it, though I will keep the archive up indefinitely. In the meantime, I have lots of ideas for material I want to publish at About Amish and Beyond. I hope you’ll head on over to check out my new blog. Happy reading, and I look forward to seeing you in the comments section! It’s the chance of having a dialog with you, my readers, that keeps me blogging.
