    • Honestly, I have never even been on Yahoo News so I have no idea. Spending lots of money on google ads to increase website traffic – little success so far! Go figure!

  1. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which I feel I would never understand.

    It kind of feels too complex and very extensive for me.
    I’m taking a look forward in your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the cling of
    it!

    • Well, that does sound very annoying. I have contacted WordPress support to see if they can figure out the problem. Meantime, you should be able to open one of the emails and there should be a place to “unsubscribe” or, if you are also on WordPress you can go to “blogs I follow” and edit there so you will not receive an email for each new post. I do apologize and wish I could fix the problem so as not to lose your following! Thank you for alerting me to the problem…
