Pardon me while I just do some blogging-housekeeping! The Feedburner app that Google provided so blog readers could sign up for automated emails to receive new posts is going away.
Now there's a new gadget on the right side of my blog for new readers to sign up for the same service; those of you are already signed up to receive emails will still receive them.
The new app is called follow.it.I did some checking and it looked like the easiest and safest and it's free. They guided through the process of setting it up and advised me to alert you to the change:
Feedburner stops email services – switch to follow.it now
Google announced that they will terminate Feedburner’s email subscription feature in July. This leaves many bloggers & website owners wondering: what service to switch to?
Why follow.it is the best Feedburner alternative
If you don’t know follow.it yet, please have a look at our intro.
Here are the key reasons why you should switch to follow.it:
`Reliable email delivery: Emails land in inbox, not spam folders, due to follow.it’s excellent sender reputation
`Mature: follow.it (and its predecessor SpecificFeeds) has been around for over 5 years
`Free: follow.it’s “Basic”-plan includes many features, allows unlimited followers & emails, and is 100% free; optional premium plans are priced very fairly . . .
