It’s a good way to let your blog readers to subscribe your blog via email, you can do this easily with FeedBurner. FeedBurner offers you a subscription form for your readers to subscribe, but sometimes we want to design our own way for subscription, maybe use a button or what. We need a link for this, we can find it in Feedburner, let me show you.
First of all, you need to activate email subscription of your feed. Go to Publicize page of your feed in Feedburner, click Email Subscriptions on the left hand side, you will see the email subscription page, there is a Activate button in the bottom, click it to activate email subscription. And then you will see some codes in the middle of the page, look closer to the codes, you will find something like this:
window.open(‘http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=ZackLive’, ‘popupwindow’, ‘scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520′);
While ‘ZackLive’ in the code, is my feed name. The link in this code:
is the email subscription link, you can test it by paste it in your browser, you will be asked to input your email to subcribe, that’s what we want.
The email subscription link can be used, for example, you have a cool email image, you can set the link to this image, when readers click on the image, they will go to subscription page, and then Feedburner will take care other things.
