Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

PLEASE RESUBSCRIBE - Emails of Blog Posts CEASE July 1, 2021

 Dear friends, I am sorry for silence, just posting quickly to let you know that Blogger has decided to withdraw the EMAIL SERVICE by Feedburner. 

If you get this post by Email, you NEED to resubscribe, by coming onto this blog post. 

Especially as I’ve become such a erratic blogger unless you’ve subscribed you simply won’t know I’ve posted.

See the form at the top of sidebar of my blog (link here, if on mobile phone you will need to scroll down and select "View web version" at bottom of page) sorry it may take a while for sidebar to load fully, if on mobile device like me. πŸ˜•

There is the SUBSCRIBE BY EMAIL and Contact Me form.

Especially if you’re on outlook you will need to RESUBSCRIBE, by FILLING IN THIS NEW FORM ON TOP OF SIDEBAR.

I’ve at present 1,250 approx, supposed email subscriptions. I reckon at least three quarters are spam. About 75% are outlook with weird addresses, so I'm deleting them.

Outlook subscriptions need to resubscribe.

Please re-subscribe even if you’re not an Outlook address, so I know you’re NOT SPAM.

Thank you.

We have the month of June to sort this mess out! Not really happy with Blogger doing this, but since it’s a free system I’ve really no right to whinge. I don’t want adds on my blog, so choosing to do it myself. Most other ways involve adds or some such. To be honest I couldn’t figure it out. This is how Loll of “Stamping with Loll” is doing it.

 I need to collect all addresses together, then set up free email account especially just for sending emails of blog posts and do a copy and paste of my blog post each time I blog, and email it off to you...

At least you’ll get them more quickly than when feedburner does it. That’s a plus. πŸ˜ƒ as I’ve two blogs I’ll have to do it twice. 

My Christian blog however has only 25 subscriptions and I can be sure they’re not spam as know most of them. However put same link there for those who want to join.

BTW If you’ve a blog, then to check your subscription addresses you need to log into Feedburner. Use same email address and password as you use for blogger, as it’s owned by blogger. I just Googled “login to my Feedburner”to get in (update however this doesn’t always work, used below method lately). 


Step 1. Login to your own blog account.

Step 2. put in actual address which is simply 

That link took me into the blogger account I was signed into.

Step 3. You have to select you blog name, which is hyper link there. Mind you it took me 20mins of searching to figure out how to get in!

Step 4. Then you select the “Publicize “ tab at top, and scroll right down to bottom of that.

Step 5. select “Email subscriptions” link. They then pop up then down below. (See also edit at end)


So, yes, work involved but love blogging. 

Just would that time wasn’t such a scarce commodity these days. 

Nothing to do with me getting older or slower of course! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Any questions, please ask me at the time of subscribing for emails, I will do my best to answer them. I’m no expert, my God’s a great help though.

{Edit, to clarify at the end of post}

And to close I thought I’d share just how good my God is... 

Today I was in the computer/ craft room doing the bulletin printing for our church oldies group (yes, that includes  me πŸ˜‰). Checking my mobile phone  calendar re pension dates, I noticed...

Eeeek! Monday 24th, I had an eye specialist appointment in half an hour. 

Wow! My Dr comes up from Sydney once a month, you have to wait months for an appointment. They usually ring you with a reminder the week before, but were as it turned out understaffed, so zero reminder. I’d been away ten days, then full on weekend of family reunion, church etc. so it had totally fallen out of my head.

However, our great God is never understaffed, nor suffering with a vacant headspace, and He graciously made up the shortfall. 

I was quickly ready, changed and in the car arriving for appointment two mins before due time! Oh, and eye condition is stable! πŸ˜„

As my dear friend, Maz, often says, “Ain’t God good!?”

May our wonderful Father God bless you and all your dear ones in every way,

Prayer hugs πŸ™πŸ€— Shaz in Oz.x 


You really don't need to log into Feedburner if you dont know how or can't figure it out just do following.

Go into layout settings on the blog you have. 

*Select add a gadget. 

*Select add a Contact Me Form or whatever the contact widget or gadget is called. 

*Write on it "Subscribe to new blog Posts by Email or Contact me" 

*Add it to sidebar.  

*Save email addreses into your email and send those folk an email to say you've posted and the blog link.  No need to copy and paste whole post if too hard.

  So basically: 1. its add the contact me gadget. 

2. Save addresses.

 3. Send an email when you've a new post.  No harder than blogging. 

If you dont want to do it that's okay too..

Have re subscribed Shaz,,, Blogger has been playing games with me and removed half of my blog list and many posts saying they were reported..NOT happy..Loz

Lynn Holland said...

Sorry I’m no wiser now on how to solve the problem on my own blog Shaz. It’s all a bit to technical for me. I don’t know how to find out who subscribes by email or how to find out.

My post below explains it Lyn. But must confess it takes effort. Maybe somone near to help πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ€—

Have stuck my head in the sand about the Feedburner issue. Took a look at and couldn’t figure it out, so I left it. I will have to do something so your article is a timely reminder. I am very glad your eye appointment was positive. Happy WOYWW Angela #12

Actually added an edit on this post here. Thought the comment was on WOYWW post. Also emailed you Lynn. Hope it helps.

Thank you for this detailed post. I didn't even read their alert. So tired of computer changes and how ALL aspects of a home computer are changed to their liking. MY gripe is PHOTOS. LEAVE ME ALONE. I'm old I like how I've set my space and an don't need a new Word program A new photo storage system or anything else. End of Rant. My phone is the same, always changing and not for the better in most instances.
