    Hi. Honest, not grumpy, ok? I like feedback. So. I can’t even see whole photos & it’s difficult to read bc there is no X to remove the email newsletter ad & the “Yes! Sign me up!” keeps wiggling in a distracting way. I don’t need a newsletter, I found this on Pinterest, & I would happily follow your site by logging on directly. I tend to see & be interested in ads in margins or between text. I remove those that block content, without reading them or seeing what they’re for. Also I don’t sign up for outside content & I feel like pages swoop on me for it before I could even read my 1st article there. It feels pushy that I can’t even see past this one. So rather than just wander off, & search another source, I thought I’d tell you why first, bc I’ll bet you’re on a laptop or tablet when you upload & design the site & may not realize. Email is a bit out of date. Few still use it bc of spam, now that we can text internationally, so this really should have an X. It’s hard to type this! I don’t have text size magnified, or etc either. Btw, I don’t check email. Ever. This is just a note bc this may be your livelihood & if no one tells you, & it’s an issue…. Thanks very much for listening. I really wanted to see this recipe. ✌️

    • Yes! I absolutely love feedback – especially constructive feedback like this. Thank you. I had no idea that this was an issue. I’m not a fan of a bunch of junk piling up in my email either. However, it is a blogging necessity. Yes, an X is crucial. The company that collects emails on the site charges $30 a month for that little X in the corner and they have locked me out of altering the sign up bar. So…because of your helpful feedback, I have deleted my account with the subscription service that collects emails for my site. I promise I will go in search for a more user friendly alternative. You gave me the push I needed to do that. I do want to make my site as user friendly as I can. I visit sites too, and absolutely hate it when you can’t just get to the article. I don’t want to be that site. Thank you again.
