Update to followers about mailing list

Friends,

After a bit of effort, it’s my hope that I’ll have a more reliable mailing list function working as of Monday morning. If things don’t work out, the blog going forward will continue to be a website only.

Please note that the latest updates will always exist on thisweekinswingnyc.com. The major weekly updates typically happen on Friday or Saturday. Mid week updates occur as time allows. After this week, the mailing list will go out on Sunday mornings.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Thanks
Eileen
