First, for those of you who said you did not get the "Welcome, You're In!" email, please check both your spam and deleted folders. I use MailChimp to send all the emails at once, and some mail protocols either don't like mass mailers, or your security settings for your email is set such that it kills it. If you follow this page, you should be just fine. I'll post what I sent in email here as well.
I have no idea if this will work, but if you aren't getting emails, please try to add yourself to my list (even though you're already on it) by clicking here. I tested it with an alternate ID but it still may or may not work -- some have been able to add themselves, so please do try that method. But if you keep your eye out here, you should be fine.
About partners -- I have to individually email every single one of you. I don't like putting everyone's email up for spammers to grab and have a hay day with. It takes a LOT of time to email the "here's your partner" email. Some of you may receive your partner BEFORE the 28th, so please keep a look out, and I will post partners and blog links here after I email you, too.
While I'm getting you all paired, please get your soups ready. I know some of you like to wait and see who you get before (because you just may have made a soup that they already kind of use!) but the extended waiting period between sign up and partner list means there should be NO LATE MAILINGS. Sorry to yell in all caps, but it is so important you get yourself as ready as you can. I absolutely know life can get in the way, so please start preparing now.
I'm now going to post the email I sent out last week that some of you say didn't arrive in your inbox.
