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.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
