Feedburner and WordPress e-mail subscriptions

Hey all,

Just a quick note to let you know that I am deactivating Feedburner for new sign ups.

WordPress have recently developed a new HTML based subscripton tool, which I think is far superior, and so I’d love for all new sign-ups to go through this list, as I think that it better showcases my content and allows my subscribers to get more out of my feed. After all, you guys are the fantastic people who read all of my posts (hopefully!!), and so you deserve the best!

To subscribe to my blog, please click on the link in the side bar marked ‘Email Subscription’ and follow the prompts. I believe that you should be able to select the frequency that the email comes out, ranging from instantly to weekly. If you choose daily, my posts will be sent between 6am-8am GMT, and if you choose weekly, they will arrive on Saturday morning, GMT.

A sample of the new WordPress subscriber emails

The RSS feed remains unchanged and is still available for new subscribers.

If you’re currently on the original Feedburner subscription, you will still continue to receive my blog via the usual emails – I am not deactivating the service, just moving folk towards the new system. However, you may wish to consider unsubscribing from the Feedburner emails, and then re-signing up to my blog to get the new HTML based WordPress subscription emails.

Also, people who subscribe – do you have a blog or vlog of your own that I can follow? Do let me know!

If anyone has any queries or issues, do please let me know via comments 😀

Thanks a mil guys, Gx

(PS, the only niggle with the new system is that it cannot display the thumbnail of YouTube or Vimeo clips in the email… so you just need to visit my blog (as before) by simply clicking on the title of the emailed post  to see the YouTube or Vimeo clip).
