Last evening our gmail account had been shut down and my blog had disappeared from the internet. Google let us self-identify through a telephone contact drill, but the blog existed only in the "wayback machine" https://web.archive.org/web/20220215223001/http://www.johndayblog.com/
I was directed to "Is this your blog".
None of the options for not finding it was helpful.
I said they were not helpful, and wrote that restoring it and/or explaining the action to me would help.
I'm beginning the process of setting up a Substack account, as Tessa (fights robots) Lena suggested, and which works for her.
It should be possible to transfer all of these emails to a send list from Substack.
Please tell me if you don't want to get the Substack version of the blog/newsletter. (I added a few folks into this send who don't usually get the newsletter.)
My very strong suspicion is that this happened because of a modification of AI censorship settings.

I had initially set up the blog as a parallel communication route in spring 2016 when my bcc newsmails to about 180 people started to get blocked in the primary season. I was posting links about the vote-rigging in the Democratic primaries, and other anti-narrative information.
All the sends went through starting 3 days after the (Trump) election, but the problem repeated in 2018 and 2020 election cycles.
The blog has been hard to find on Google searches, but possible to access by URL.
The news-emails get routed to trash for a lot of people. I keep getting word of this.
These all seem like AI algorithmic censorship to me.
I don't expect it to get better.
The new site will be at drjohnsblog.substack.com .
I need to get down to the homestead and do some interior construction work now.
