    Hi
    I cannot seem to get on the website for My Email Designs. Is Mike Mendyke no longer doing this? or maybe there is just a problem with the server? Interested to know if anyone else is having issues.

    I can't get it to connect either. Strange. I used it earlier this week. Hopefully just server error.

    I can't get to it either, and I realized this weekend that I haven't seen any of his usual emails saying the newsletter was ready to go this month. The last two months i've used PC's newsletter because I'm terrible at being consistent with my newsletter. But I've paid for a year with Mike, so it's still available to me for another 6+ months.

    interesting.

    I just retrieved my newsletter for November the other day, so he's still working and it's still available. I'm having trouble accessing it right now, though, so maybe he's having a problem w/ his server. Do you have his e-mail address? mike@myemaildesigns.com

    I cannot access it either. Come to think of it, I never received a notification that the November newsletter was available. I went to the website myself at the end of October and downloaded the November newsletter, but I did think it odd that he never sent me a notification as he always does. I hope he isn't closing up shop. Not only did I just subscribe for a year, I signed up with iContact for a year also.

    Yes, it is another service. There are several different ones out there. TT is most prominent on CS because Joy (the creator) is an active member here.

    Yep, Mike is another newsletter designer. His are really nice and professional looking. (So are Joy's, though, I love her work as well!) I've been using Mike's for almost 3 yrs. now I think. He's good. The only things I don't like of his is that sometimes the opening is a bit "flowery" for my taste. I like to customize what is said in the intro and I usually remove the picture he puts in there because it's a nature picture or something and I'd rather just stick to product pictures. So I like that he does the hard work and then I just edit it real quick.

    The only other negative comment I have to say about Mike's is that I wish he'd go in and update the newsletter when PC announces the recruiting promotions on the 1st of the month (when there is one anyway). And I wish he'd add a FB button for us to promote our FB page. Other than that, he does a great job and provides good links w/o any issues.

    I use Mike's newsletter too. If you have a FB page and enter it in your profile section it does add a button at the top. I have had mine that way for the past 2 months I believe.

    Thanks!! I'll look into that! I wonder...did he announce that ability in any of his e-mails? Did I miss that or did he not announce it?

    Oh great--not only is his site down, but all the links in my newsletter don't work because of that.

    I honestly don't recall it being in an email but I may have been. I just noticed it on the website where he talks about what is going on or new one day. I usually don't look at that either but was glad I did.
