How to Let Someone Subscribe Via Email to Your Blog

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

If I could snap my fingers and create one feature on ActiveRain, this might be it. I've always thought that very few people use RSS feeds and almost everyone still uses email. 

Yet, we only allow someone to subscribe to your blog via an RSS feed, and not via email. But, with about 10 minutes of work, you can let someone subscribe to your blog via email.

All that you need is a Google account and the ability to listen to me ramble on for 12 minutes about how to set it up. 

Here's how:

I remember doing this eons ago & no one signed up so I gave up on it. I always thought it was a good idea.

Thanks Bob,

This is great and so simple I think even I can do it.  Does it effect SEO if you have lots of subscribers?

Helping folks have an easy link to tap tap for the connection. The wall to wall, loud and clear of your marketing media streams. Any of them is so so important. Thanks Bobster.

Thank you! THIS WILL BE ON MY TODO List! I have been working with a marketing coach, on a few other things, too. So this should come in handy. I try to do a little more each day. If only my darn pillow wouldn't call my name every night!

Hi Bob -


Not sure if you can help, but I tried this and the first method didnt work.  Feedburner just showed me part of a box and the words I typed in "Subscribe here:"   I knew I was in trouble when it didnt automatically show me the form in the Activerain blogging Prefs.  Any idea why the one way would work, but not the other way?  I tried multiple browers and computers.  Thanks.
