I discovered an automatically activated feature that was set to deliver emails to subscribers only between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. Go figure why they would set that as a default. I deactivated that and suddenly my two subscribers showed up: myself and my husband. With this post, we'll see if emails are sent out every time a post is posted. Or what... I have no idea but frankly, I'm prepared for it NOT to work!
Trying to be patient...and persevering.
