There was a comment on the post I made yesterday. The question asked referred to the Feedburner emails that are obtained when someone subscribes to your blog via email. Now I am posting a short video that I feel is clear and explains how to view the actual emails that you get via the Feedburner program.
However, I want to make a couple of points before you view the movie.
The email subscribers you have via Feedburner have subscribed to your Blog not any thing non-related to your blog posts. For example, I would not advise that you send them announcements about your trip to Kansas when your blog is on music. You get the idea. I just don’t anyone accused of spamming. But this is my opinion and would love to hear other’s thoughts on the matter. The author of the tutorial below suggests that you can bring the names into different programs. But just be careful that you have permission to use them beyond the subscription to your blog.
The emails can be exported from Feedburner into a CSV file and then opened in an Excel spreadsheet plus other programs.
Ok, now you can view the video and let me know what you think.
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.
Feedburner is now owned by Google. You should, if you do not have an account. This is especially helpful for folks using Blogger platforms because it is another way of getting stats for your site. So go and study the site. Activate some of the features. If you want a tutorial or two about it let us know.
Feedburner can also generate the link that allows folks to subscribe to your site and be alerted when you post via email. This is great for many who are not using RSS readers yet.
