A couple of weeks ago, Jerry and I received a surprise email from a Stogie Review Fan. This individual was curious as to why he was no longer receiving email updates for new cigar reviews. When the email came through, my first thought was “Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen an email update on some time either”.
As Jerry and I looked into the situation, it became clear that our Feedburner Email Subscription Service had stopped working. Unable to jump-start the service into working again, we began looking at alternatives.
We decieded to go the KISS Route (Keep It Simple Stupid) and setup WordPress Email Subscriptions. The huge downside to this was that all of our current email subscribers would be lost (unable to import them). Despite having to start out all over again, we thought the WordPress Route was the way to go.
The upside is that we won’t have to purge out old email addresses and readers wouldn’t suddenly be thrown into a new service without accepting (we value your privacy and wouldn’t want our personal information transferred from one service to another). This route also gives us a great opportunity to run a contest.
Entry is simple. All you have to do is sign up to receive email updates from Stogie Review! On May 1st, we’ll draw a name from the subscriber list (at random) and they will win a Cain F Table Torch.
