The Other Toledo: Thanks to loyal readers and supporters for your patience while The Other Toledo upgrades daily delivery to email inboxes.*
Meanwhile, I will continue to post Daily Columns at The Other Toledo, and post links to Facebook and Twitter. You can also subscribe to a non-FB, non-Twitter RSS Feed to get Daily Columns; Feedly is probably the best known and easiest to use.
Your understanding is appreciated during construction.
Under The Hood: Gmail *& other email services are updating their privacy policies following widespread privacy concerns in the wake of Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony. Using Gmail for sending out dozens of emails daily under BCC: triggered Spam filters, as I discovered upon hitting SEND early Tuesday morning.
Trying Google Groups to re-invite folks who have already signed up is cumbersome, as some of you have explained. So I am working hard to find the final ingredient critical to getting TOT’s Daily Column to you each weekday, instead of getting the error message.
