Update on Email Subscription

May 25, 2021

 



Hello blog friends.  There is a new update that the Follow by Email Widget (Feedburner) email subscription will be turned off as of July.  It means that subscribers to your blog by email will no longer receive updates when you send out a new blog post.  

When I saw this notice on blogger I knew that it would be difficult for me to figure out how to set it up on my own.  

I have a blog friend, Linda from Life and Linda who designs blogs.  I've been very happy with the blogging help I've had in the past with Linda for different tech issues on my blog.

Linda did a helpful blog post about the changes with Feedburner that you should read.    



I contacted Linda and had her change my email subscription service over to Mailchimp.  Below is what my new Follow By Email Widget looks like.  

I love my new email subscriber widget and it was a pleasure to work with Linda.  If you would like to see other samples Linda has done for the new email subscription set up, you can click Here

If you need a new blog refresh or other blog services by Linda you can visit her Here.  Linda also decorates beautiful tablescapes and runs a fun blog party called Love Your Creativity Link Party. 

If you read this Linda - Thank you for your blog assistance and help with setting up the new email subscription with MailChimp.  You are my fairy blog mother.

  2. Linda is certainly been busy with helping so many of us. This should make it easier for all of us to have our email alerts go out. Have a great day today Julie. xoxo
