Bye Bye Free Jazz Blog by Email

Dear Email Subscribers,

We are very unhappy to report that Google is removing the automated email function from Blogger (which is used to host the Freejazzblog).

Here is what they say:

"FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner) is going away
You are receiving this information because your blog uses the FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner).
Recently, the Feedburner team released a system update announcement, that the email subscription service will be discontinued in July 2021.
After July 2021, your feed will still continue to work, but the automated emails to your subscribers will no longer be supported."

While the RSS feeds should continue working (we hope, we use those too!), we are unsure if we will be able to re-establish the daily email digest at this time - the previously working solution was simple and free. Damn it. 

So, please make sure you visit us on the site and follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter!

Best,
Free Jazz Blog


PS- if anyone has a suggestion how to generate an automated, free email to the list, we're interested!

I visit everyday. Because of you and this site I keep up with all things in the free jazz world.

you should try Button Down for emails.

I follow you on twitter but as with anyone you follow you don't see half the stuff they post. I will definitely interact less without the daily emails which I really like!

No fear on my part. I visit this blog every day and don't need email notifications. Keep up the great work.

I did not even know about the possibility of email notifications. So, as others here too, I came back (almost) every day to read the best available news about my favorite music ... many thanks to all of you who make this happen.

A useful overview of Feedburner alternatives is https://feedburner-alternatives.com. It might help you figure out the next steps.
