I had feed burner but deleted it as I want more control and do not wish to have emails sent automatically.
I'm not selling anything and don't want to annoy my subscribers at all.
I am looking for a simple method for people to subscribe.
The WordPress one wants feed burner so is there another decent option?
If you install Jetpack, there is a Subscription widget in there. When they sign up - each time you post a new blog, those that sign up will receive a notification in their email.
Thanks but I don't want emails sent to my subscribers; unless I choose to.
I have my site setup so only subscribers can make comments so need a way for them to do that.
Ok, confused.... what are they subscribing to if you don't want emails sent to them? If you want subscribers to receive comments on posts - the only way for them to get them is via an email.
Well, valid point but I just don't want emails sent every time I post; which is a lot.
I think I'm going to try Mailchimp options, thanks
Using Jetpack Subscribe, the members' themselves can select whether or not they want to be notified. There are two lines - one to received comments made after their own comments and then one to receive emails when new posts are added. So they can control what they want. I think if you limit what they receive and how often, you might shoot yourself in the foot - especially if you have a lot of subscribers. If page views, etc., are important to you - then these notifications will help to push them back over to the site.
Thank you, anitac.
You make perfect sense and I did think of that.
Perhaps I'll just stick with that then.
Case closed and I appreciate all you do here.
