You are done now!! :) Wasn’t that simple?

Some  Insight!!

You can track your subscription information from your FeedBurner Panel.

Though this gadget has got a simple easy to use interface, the gadget is really intelligent, and does  lot of background work and synchronization. It checks if you have already burnt your blogger feed, and if you have, then it retrieves  your Feed burner URL automatically. If you have burnt  the feed but  hadn’t enabled the Email Subscription option for your Feed, then it automatically enables the same.

If you haven’t even used FeedBurner before, then it automatically burns your blogger feed, and retrieves the new FeedBurner url of the new feed that was generated.

Oh!! I hate the url that FeedBurner gave me.

If your blog has a very common name, then there is every possibility that you will end up with a  non-pretty FeedBurner url like http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/qOAyP . Most of  you might not give a damn about this url. But if you really want to change it, then you can easily do that as well.Follow these Steps

1. Login to http://feedburner.com and Click on the Feed For your Blog

2. Click on Edit Feed Details

  1. I think its a pretty handy little gadget to add to a blog, I've added it to my blog although I'm not sure if I'm that popular that people have added their email address to it.

  6. That's what I was waiting for. Actually i hated to go to feedburner and then do that boring stuff to add an email subscription box to my blog. But, now with this widget it's much simpler.
    Thanks for the update.

  7. I've been wondering how to do this. Now I've added it and tested it with one of my many email addys. Nice explanation and great gadget. Isn't blogger great for all the gadgets they make available for us to use. Makes us feel and "appear" to be almost professional. Now if you want to read a bit of the ramblings of a Southern lady, check my blog out a bit.... http://www.ChatWithVera.blogspot.com. Now I hope I've not infringed in some area I should not by adding the link here. :)

  18. How long does it take (after publishing a new post) for the email notification to go out? Immediately upon publishing, or after some amount of time?

  19. I've added it successfully and people used it and it works. Problem is, no one received email notifications of my blog postings. So it didn't work for me. Any suggestions?

  20. Wow. Great tool, thx.
    Is it possible to change the tekst into my own language, and if so how? Just simply change 'submit' into 'verzenden' would bge enough.

  22. Interesting technique you have Admin. You remove the url from the comment author names. i suggest you should mention this in your comments section that you wont be giving any dofollow backlinks to your daily visitors. Crap thing though! you just lost one here.

  23. @Psycho - you can click the profile pic to reach the user's blog. I don't see the need for 2 separate links.
