Good Afternoon Campers! I would like to take the opportunity to share a letter to the editors that we received in this mornings comments. By answering it here, it is an easy way to give out the answer to the question the letter asks and it begs the teacher in me to take advantage of an instructional opportunity. I know that most of you are only thinking two things right now…. football and beer…with maybe a pizza thrown in. But, if you guys could take, just a minute to go over this with me, I’d appreciate it.
Okay, let’s go over to the board on the left side of the yard and read this letter.
Lethal and Impish, For some reason I do not receive Dragon Laffs any more. I have
to have a friend ‘o mine forward it to me every Sat. & Wed. I have tried to re-
subscribe 2 or 3 times, to no avail. Please, Please, Please, put me back on the list of
subscribers. My e-mail address
Thank you ever so much,
Hi Wizard 1952, may I call you Wizard or would you prefer Mr. 1952? Well, there are actually several points to address in your letter, so let me take them one at a time. It’s been about 2 years since we have emailed out the e-zine. That is since we’ve gone to the blog format that we have now.
Now, the blog itself, WordPress, does allow you to “follow” the blog, although sometimes you have to create an account of your own and sometimes you don’t. I’m not really sure since I already have an account. In order to do that you must go to the blog, the same place you went to, to leave a comment this morning, and click on the Email Subscription as shown below:
We do not recommend this practice for a couple of reasons. First of all, we recommend viewing the blog on the website (www.dragonlaffs.com) because that is where you’re going to get the best show, since it is designed to be viewed from the blog.
Secondly, the videos….like this one here:
won’t be viewable in the email. You must go to the blog in order to view it…and trust me when I tell you, the videos that we choose to put in the blog are well worth going to the blog to view.
And finally, Mr. 1952 (he didn’t want me to call him Mr. Wizard) if you have someone email you the emailed copies, why not just go to the blog to view them? We get credit for the hits of people who go to the blog to view the e-zine. Always a worthwhile proposition.
Oh, one more thing just occurred to me… if you have gone to the blog and subscribed and still aren’t getting emails, then it’s either some problem with wordpress or the email is being sent to your spam folder.
Anyway, thanks for allowing me to interrupt your Sunday afternoon. Hope your day is filled with fun and laughter.
