7 Things to do Before You MOVE Your Website to Your New Blog Home-Part 5

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series 7 Things to do Before You Move to Blog Home

By now you have create a floor layout of your blog with the FREE BLOG Planning Form. You choose a host, have painted the walls by choosing a theme,  and you hung up a sign letting folks know that an exciting thing is going to happen in this new home. You also called the Security Company and installed an alarm. The alarm for our WordPress.org Blog is Askismet.

Now it is time to call the Phone Company


The phone company I called was Feedburner. I created an RSS feed there and also a way for folks to subscribe to my blog. All they have to do is key in their email address and a call is placed to their email letting them know I just posted something new on my blog. How cool is that!

I have located a easy to understand video on how to do the subscription. Once again, I could have done it but she did such a great job! Plus, now I have time to go out and hula hoop.

Email subscription using feedburner


Oh, I know I can also call other venders and if you know of any please share. But for now Feedburner, which is owned by Google should do just fine. While you are there browse and look at the other features because it is simply powerful.

Talk with you later

  • Hi Rosie,

    Thanks for the post and great suggestion. Quick question – Can you manage your subscribers list that use the feedburner service? That is, can you send them other emails, do a backup of their details, in case anything goes wrong, so you don’t lose their information?

    Thanks
