Using Feedburner to update subscribers

Subscribers to this blog will receive an email every day with any blog posts of the last 24 hours – sometimes a few, sometimes none, depending on how the muse or inclination has taken us (or how hard I’ve wielded the whip). And thanks to Feedburner what you get is a smart email.

So how do you add this to your blog?

First you’ll want to “claim your feed” at Feedburner. If you have a Google account you can use that, or create a new one. Follow the instructions to set things up there.

Then you want Feedburner to work from your blog – we use the FD Feedburner plugin which takes care of all this. Once installed (Plugins, Add New then search for the FD Feedburner – Install and Activate) you’ll have a link to configure the Feedburner under the Plugins Menu.  What we use here is the form provided by Feedburner within a Text Widget box. Nice and simple – have a play and set yours up.
