Subscribe to my Blog via Email



I’m slow to some things, believe it or not. I am just getting to testing out Feedburner’s Subscribe by Email option on RSS feeds. What’s that mean? It means that you can now subscribe to my blog using your email account rather than using RSS feeds and feed readers, if you so desire.

Of course, I’ve subscribed to myself doing this, so we’ll see what I get once I hit the publish button on this post. Eventually, my idea is to offer this service on my library’s website. Let’s see what happens!

    David,
    I’ve set up this feature on all of the blogs I manage and it seems to work really well. How would you set up your library’s website to do this as well?

    Self-subscribing by email gives me a backup copy of my posts, just in case, you know.

    Andrew – I’m thinking we’ll set up a library feedburner account, then dump our 30 feeds into it and then embed the email code on the appropriate pages.

    John – what a cool idea – I hadn’t even thought about using it that way!

    I use Feedburner email subscriptions on my blog and have had good success with it. I’d say about 1/3 of my readers are subscribed via email. Let’s face it, some people don’t use Bloglines, Google Reader, etc…. some people prefer to get blog subscriptions via email. The only problem I had was for about 3 days when Feedburner dropped all my email subscriptions. But then they came back a few days later – some glitch with their system I think.

    Hi Brooke. There isn’t a way to do that using Feedburner. Feedburner is more of an on/off service – it only sends the whole post.

    I think some bloggers might use electronic newsletter services to send just parts of a blog post, with a link to the whole thing. Hope that helps!

    Brooke, hope this is not late, but go to your blog Dashboard and click ‘Settings’, under this click ‘Site Feeds’. here you will find an option, ‘Allow Blog Feeds’ how much do you wish to send Full / Short . Click Short

    Feedburner's email service works with your RSS settings. If you only want to email an exerpt then you will need to change your RSS settings in your wordpress admin.

    what is the blog you want to subscribe to doesnt have a feedburner? how do i go about that.

    Your advice would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  • http://www.eusof.com/ eusof

    typo.
    Correction: What if* the blog…

  • http://www.davidleeking.com davidleeking

    Sure – most likely the blog WILL have an rss feed (whether or not it also
    has a Feedburner version of that feed). Look for the RSS radio icon (orange
    or blue) in the address bar of your browser, or the blog site might point
    out the link (usually by saying “subscribe to this blog” or similar
    language).

    Then simply click the link/radio icon, and subscribe using google
    reader/bloglines/your favorite rssw feed reader.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you Dave. i tried that. however i dont really like subscribing via google reader.

    I was more interested in getting email updates from feedburner like when we subscribe via email. Still wondering how to go about it. Advice?

  • http://www.davidleeking.com davidleeking

    Hmm… that's harder to do. Some email clients will subscribe to feeds – new
    versions of Microsoft exchange, for example, does this. Also, there might be
    some services that you can “bookmark” a website, then get emailed when
    there's a change on that page (these don't always work well though).

    Otherwise, it's pretty tough to do without using a feed reader or just
    periodically visiting the site to see if anything changed.
