Making It Easy to Subscribe to Your Blog with RSS

Just a really, really simple tip about something I discovered this weekend while updating my blog with my new wordpress theme.  It’s such a simple thing, I can’t believe I actually missed it.  Nevertheless, I thought I would share in case anyone else didn’t know about it either.  It’s with my RSS (Really Simple Syndication).  I created my RSS feed with a long time ago but overlooked setting up the option to subscribe via email – duh?! LOL

If you’re not familiar with what RSS is and the benefits, here’s a good overview by Problogger What Is Rss

Anyway, you can set up your Google Feedburner account to allow individuals to subscribe to your blog updates via email in addition to the normal RSS if they want.  All you do is go into your account and choose your feed.  Click on Publicize and to the left you’ll see Email Subscriptions.  Click on that, make any necessary adjustments and enable it.  You’re done!

This is great because you want to make it easy for people to subscribe to your blog so the more options you can give them the better.

I can’t believe I didn’t do this before but hey! It’s done now.  Speaking of which, if you haven’t subscribed to my blog yet, click on the RSS on top right and subscribe using either the RSS or NOW email.  OR, better yet, if you’re in internet marketing or have an online business, subscribe to my newsletter where you also get my 12-Day Internet Marketing Course, free Valuable Bonus Gifts plus tons of tools, tips and resources to help you grow your business.

What’s YOUR preferred method of subscribing?  Leave a comment below.  Thanks.

To Your Success!
