Feedburner Launches Email Subscriptions

Not everyone is comfortable with using Feedreaders to keep track of blogs and news. Some people rely on bookmarks / delicious / blogroll links and the rest use the plain old method of typing the URL in the address bar. People who have a limited reading list might not have felt the need to graduate to feedreaders. Although email subscription services (like Bloglet) have been around for sometime, not many blogs offered email subscriptions. With Feedburner joining the fray, more people might start offering email subscriptions. Further, some bloggers have the habit of sending the permalink of their latest post to draw the attention of friends and fellow bloggers. Instead of doing so, if they can let others know about the feed subscription option and email subscription option, it might turn out to be a non-intrusive way of making others stay tuned with the latest posts on your blog.

  • @KK,
    this would make sense for randomly updated blogs as well.

    @Prasanna,
    you're welcome

    @Srijith,
    i don't think feedburner will spam people.
