Thank you to all of you who've subscribed to receive my posts by e-mail. It means a huge about to me that you want to take time out of your day to read my ramblings.
However, I got an e-mail from a reader saying that she was horribly embarrassed whenever one of my mails hit her inbox as the title screamed out MUMMY WAS A SECRET DRINKER, which can be mortifying if someone spots it.
I totally get it, as I receive my own e-mails, so the same has happened to me.
One of my Godsons (aged 12) spotted my blog in my inbox once. "Mummy Was a Secret Drinker?" he read, quizzically.
I quickly changed screen, blushed like a beetroot, and said "It's just a blog I subscribe to. Totally CRAZY lady. Don't know why I read it!" Accompanied by eye roll and forced laugh.
The e-mail system is totally automated by a programme called Feedburner, so I'm not at all sure how to tinker with it, and I am a technical klutz. The fact that I managed to set this blog up at all is a miracle!
But I THINK I may have fixed it so my mails come through with the title A NEW POST FROM SM.
So this post is a test, and I'll let you know in the comments below if it worked.
If you'd like to receive my posts by mail, then go to the full website (if you're using a mobile device like smartphone or iPad then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on View Full Website). In the top right corner of the homepage you'll see a box titled 'Subscribe by mail'. Just put your e-mail address in there.
(Don't worry, your e-mail address is NOT public, and is NOT shared with anyone).
