New Subscribe By Email Rss Form For Blogger


In the last post we got a sneak preview of the New Blogger Design coming in 2011, Blogger had also promised lots more new features.And just a day later they have added an Email Rss Form to the Gadget Directory so you can easily provide the option for your readers to get your latest posts delivered to their inbox.By coincidence i also published a post this week about how Google connect their other services with Blogger and the Email Rss Form is connected with the Google owned Feedburner.

Email Rss has been provided by Feedburner for a long time and before you had the option to "Burn A Feed" for your blog, Activate Email Rss, Grab The Code For The Email Form and then paste it into a Html/Javascript gadget on your sidebar.Now this whole process has been cut down to 3 clicks without the need to leave Blogger.

"...The Follow by Email gadget provides blog authors a simple way for their readers to subscribe to the latest hot-off-the-press updates, which are delivered directly to the reader’s inbox. When new blog content is published, all subscribed readers will receive a daily email notification of the new published posts, which includes a copy of the new content as well as links back to the actual posts..."

So lets first look at a screenshot and then how you add the Email Rss form to your blog.

  1. Blogger should seriously add a "Reply" feature for the comments section. All weblog services have this and Blogger suffers the lack.

  2. Nice stuff for webmasters!

  3. Did you add some coding to make it say 'Email address...' in the text field? And is it possible to add custom text into the search field of the new Search This Blog Blogger feature?

  4. "Blogger should seriously add a "Reply" feature for the comments section. All weblog services have this and Blogger suffers the lack."
    I so utterly agree. I'm actually astonished its not been created yet, by coders or blogspot.

  5. I'm curious how the email subscriptions work. Do bloggers have to do anything, or are people just sent an email whenever something new is posted? Thanks!
