Ahh another tool to annoy your users. This reminds me sudden "Meet Local Singles in Your Area" popups.

How To Add Pop Ups, or How to Lose Users in 10 easy steps!

not always sometimes users want to know that you have something new

While I appreciate the idea there is never anything truly "free from Google." At this point I would rather pay to self-host or get fewer but sufficient features from an entity that allows me to control my data, including prohibiting it from ever ending up in marketing/data-mining systems owned by Microsoft, Google, Facebook, et al.

you do not need to post private information in this Google Sheet these are just public notifications for the site you are not hiding your blog post, are you :)

The page does nothing on my browser (Android chrome). Blank screen with navigation menu.

thanks, fix it now, please try again https://proven.ly/demo-notify.html

On iOS (iOS 14 beta 3) this page is largely blank, with merely a title and menu. No content, no google sheets, no popups (thank goodness).

Incidentally, most browsers block popups by default. There might be a reason for doing that...

I checked, until it is not blocked even by a adblocker

Navigation does not work. What does it do with Google Sheets?

On Firefox your main navigation does not work.
