The "Follow by Email" Gadget Uses FeedBurner Email

FeedBurner Email Distribution takes any Atom / RSS newsfeed, and sends it out, as email, to all subscribed recipients.

One FeedBurner feed is generated, when you add The "Follow by Email" gadget, to your blog. Like all FeedBurner Email accessories, email is distributed once daily, as selected by the feed owner.

You adjust delivery time for the email feed, using the FeedBurner dashboard.

Start from Publicize, "Email Subscriptions".

Start from the FeedBurner dashboard, for the feed in question. Select the Publicize tab, "Email Subscriptions", then "Delivery Options".

You can "Select Time Zone", then "Schedule Email Delivery" for any of 12 2-hour email delivery time windows.


Email Subscriptions offers a number of options, to customise your Email Distribution service.




Activate "Email Subscriptions", as necessary.

Use "Delivery Options" to set time zone, then select from any of 12 convenient 2-hour windows for email delivery.



Note that if the blog uses a dynamic template, you'll have to add the "Subscription Links" gadget - not "Subscribe by Email". Then, you'll activate the "Email Subscriptions" service, from the Publicize tab, "Email Subscriptions" manually.

FeedBurner Email Subscriptions offers a number of options - but "Schedule Email Delivery" is the key, if you are interested in timely delivery of your posts, as you publish.

Edit the the "Follow by Email" gadget, to easily access the dashboard.

To access the FeedBurner dashboard, just Edit the "Follow by Email" gadget - either from the Layout page, or using the QuickEdit icon. Click on the link "View stats and learn more.".





That puts you into FeedBurner - at the "My Feed" display, with one click. You then select a feed, and you are in the dashboard.

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
