Have I mentioned lately how frustrating Facebook is for bloggers like myself who just want you to know when we have a new post up? We put it on our wall, and it doesn't matter that I have 50,000+ followers, most of you don't see it. Facebook apparently doesn't have enough money and wants me to pay them to make sure you see my stuff. Read about their latest switcharoos and shenanigans from Sarah and what you can do about it. The quick-take is this: If you go to my page and click the drop-down arrow by the “like” button and click “get notifications”, you'll hopefully see everything then. Also, the more you like and share my posts (or even just comment with a smiley face), that helps you see more, too. Even better is if you subscribe to the blog via email and then you won't miss anything for sure:
1. Click here to sign up to receive Kitchen Kop posts to your inbox. (Two boxes will show up there, you can use either one.) Don't forget to click the link in the confirmation email that will come to your email.
2. Click here to sign up to receive monthly updates if you prefer those instead. Again, don't forget to click the link in the confirmation email that will come to your email.
Whatever you do, I hope you'll stick around, because messages like the following one really make me sad, it was an email from one of my favorite reader friends, Sharon:
“Have you decreased the frequency of your posts? My inbox has only seen mail from you 4 times since Christmas. I've been reading about mail services not working right for other bloggers and am wondering if maybe there's some glitch that involves my email. If not, no worries, I access you directly also, but I'm missing you in my inbox. There are certain emails that cannot be missed and yours is #1 on that list. :)”
What a sweet way to start my Saturday on one hand, but on the other hand I wanted to sit down and cry!
If YOU are mysteriously not getting my updates anymore, I hope you'll come back following the directions above!
Geesh, I'm not asking much, am I?
It's just SO frustrating to try to get posts up regularly and then find out that not many are seeing them!
Will you comment below and let me know if you've been getting the updates you signed up for?
Thanks so much everyone!
