To Orange Live Mail Subscribers:
At the end of every month I field questions from e-mail blast subscribers as to “Why haven’t I gotten my morning e-mail?”
In Short, because I don’t want to charge Orange Live readers for the service.
This is the explanation the “blast company” — MailChimp provided: “MailChimp’s Forever Free plan allows you to send 12,000 total emails a month to up to 2,000 subscribers. When taking a look into the account, it looks like the subscriber count is below the 2,000 subscriber limit. However, this month, the account has sent close to 12,000 emails. So, in order to continue sending this month, the account will need to be upgraded to one of our paid plans.”
I personally don’t have money to put into yet another bill and I think it’s terrible to ask readers to pay for the service ($5 – $10 year). This month about 60 new subscribers came on board, BUT many of them are not even from this country — spam I suspect, and it is very difficult to get into the program to delete the ones who are not legitimate.
So all I ask is that everyone make it a habit to bookmark Orangectlive.com on their computer and check it each day as part of their daily routine.
The e-mail service will automatically begin again at the start of a new month — NOV. — and run steadily through the 28th before it cuts off again.
I know some see this as an inconvenience, but, it’s my way of saving you money. Please be patient and come back daily to see what’s new on Orange Live.
