I love getting emails when my favorite bloggers publish a new post. The way it works is, I sign up for email subscription, and then any time the blog has a new post, I get an email with the post header & link. Perfect. This cuts down on me having to go search for new posts. The update comes to me. Easy! I like getting the emails delivered right to my inbox, then I can quickly see what the topic is, and read it if I want then & there. The email gives you a few lines of the blog and then a link to click on that will bring you directly to that blog entry.
I find this very convenient, especially when I get the emails on my blackberry & I can read them on the go! I love when blogs have the "Subscribe" option set up for their followers. I strongly encourage you to make use of the "Subscribe" option on anyone's blog that has it. It's a great feature!
I also encourage you to set up the subscribe gadget on your own blog so that your readers can receive emails from your blog any time you post something new! And it's a great way to keep your readers up to date! It's easy-peasy to set up.
To set this up on your blog:
You just edit your blog... go to your Layout, and add a gadget...
Then choose "Follow by Email" - and it will set up your Subscribe box through feedburner & put a gadget on your blog like I have over to the right -------->>>
I set mine up through the feedburner website, but it is much easier to do it this way...
Good luck and Happy Subscribing! Have a fabulous day!
