Quick heads up on a policy change implemented this week at FeedBlitz. For RSS to email mailing lists, if there hasn’t been a post in the underlying feed for over a year, FeedBlitz will consider the underlying blog idle, and therefore change the list’s status from “active” to “paused” in order to not waste time and energy checking an apparently abandoned feed for new activity.
If you have a publisher account with us, know that any such lists and their subscribers always remain available to you; that won’t change. This update simply means lists that aren’t active will be skipped by FeedBlitz when it’s figuring out what to mail.
You can restart mailings anytime (e.g. if you start to post again) simply by logging in and restarting the list via the “Restart” link on the list’s Mailing Activity tile. For publishers on our tiered pricing scheme, paused lists won’t count to the active subscriber count and you’ll see your billing amount reduce as a result.
