emails to followers not sent today
Today, for the first time in nearly two monts, my email followers did not get an email about my blog, although it did publish as scheduled. What happened and how can I send them an email?
The blog I need help with is defeatdespair.wordpress.com.
I just realized that this is a post that I accidentally forgot to change the “2012” to “2013” when I scheduled it about 10 days ago. It sent out an email then although I did not want it to since the publication date was revised, and followers just clicked through to a “not found” message. Is there any way to re-send the email now that the post has actually published?
I did that same thing- forgetting to change the year, but had not realized right away that a post notification went out instead of being scheduled. (I subscribe to my blog with a non-wordpress account so noticed the email when I checked gmail.)
What I did was change the post date to a later time, making sure it is 2013, since I had done this before the end of 2012. I just edited it to make an apology at the top to my email subscribers for when they receive a second copy. No one had actually visited the page by that time that I am aware of. Looking at my list of posts now, it does say scheduled, so I assume the notification will go out at that time.
Maybe someone can verify that a second email will go out?? I am only assuming on my part.
That’s exactly what I did, but no email was sent when the post was published later. I didn’t know until email subscribers wrote to ask why they didn’t get their email. The only thing I could figure out to do, was to publish a post with just the explanation/apology, and then after it went out (via email) to my subscribers, I removed it from the site. Good luck!
