How to I have new content for my blog sent directly to the email of my RSS subscribers? My blog is designed to communicate information in a pretty timely manner. I think email is checked pretty often by my customers...therefore the best bet for getting information out. Can this be done?

Hi Bronco56,

When one of your site visitors subscribes to your blog by clicking on the Blog RSS Widget on your blog page that says Subscribe to this Blog, they are immediately given the option to subscribe to the RSS feed in a few different ways such as adding it to their My Yahoo or Google Homepage. Then in the future, every time you add a blog post it will go to the place the subscriber specified. You don't have to gather e-mail addresses, the Blog widget takes care of delivering the posts to the people who have subscribed.

The best way to see how this happens is to subscribe to your own Blog, create a few posts, and watch what happens. Sometimes it may take a little while for the new post to show up in the place you specified, but not more than 15 minutes to a half hour at the most.

I hope this helps; and if I am off a little, or left something out, I am sure a Synthasite employee will chime in shortly.

Take care,

Hello ABC Builders

It would appear that Feedburner does offer readers to subscribe to your blog by email. Please take a look at this link for more information:

I have not tried this but it may be worth checking out.

Feedburner sucks. I have had 20 subscribers in a week and none of them show, only the original 12 who subscribed the first day. I have been asking for help for over a week and nobody gets back to me. For sure I wouldn't reccommend Feedburner to anyone. Sal.

My RSS feed button doesnt allow/offer the option of how to subscribe. It only asks if you want to book mark the page. How do you go about setting up the option of subscribing preference?
