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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
