Follow By Email Widget (Feedburner) No More

Ok, there has been an announcement made about email subscription service going away.  Blogger's email subscription widget, also known as FollowByEmail Widget will be turned off July 2021.

I know many of you blogger still use FeedBurner, so I hope this post is helpful.

Here is the official notice:
From that date on, your readers will not receive any email notification. The feed will continue, but the automated emails will not.  So that means if you want to continue notifying your subscribers by an email, you have to change to a new subscription service. 

Before you decide on which newsletter marketing company you are going with, you should export your Feedburner's Subscriber's list.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD MY SUBSCRIBER CONTACTS FROM FEEDBURNER:
  1. Click Analyze and then select Subscribers
  2. Click Feedburner Email Subscriptions, then click Manage Your Email Subscriber List.  This opens a new page.
  3. Scroll down until you see View Subscriber Details
  4. Click Export:CSV
  5. You now have a copy of all your subscribers.
  6. You will need this list when you go with another Email marketing Company.

There are different possibilities for email notifications. I use MailChimp which is FREE for up to 2,000 subscribers.  After 2,000 there is monthly charges, depending on which plan you choose. MailChimp is the most popular marketing tool.

A few more choices below.




1-1,000 Subscribers 1200 Emails per month : FREE

There are  many more marketing options you can choose.  Most comes with a monthly charge. I hope this isn't too confusing.  I just wanted to explain what is happening with Feedburner.  No more emails to your readers when you write a new post.

I do offer my services of moving from Feedburner to MailChimp if you decide to make the move. It involves importing your subscriber list into Mailchimp. after it is exported from FeedBurner.  It is the CSV file you exported from Feedburner.  Creating a list and also creating a sign up form. There are more options if you decide you want more. I found this video tutorial for those who wish to set MailChimp themselves.

  3. Thank you, Linda. I'll see if I can do this myself but you never know. Computer wizardry is not my strong suit! That's wonder to know you are willing/able to help us! And thanks for sharing more on this. I, too, received the notice and have been at a loss to even know how to search for another program. I will definitely go with Mail Chimp. Thanks again.

  5. I read that the vast majority of email addresses on the gadget just belong to bots. Do you think that's true?

    1. When you go to www.feedburner.google.com you see Analyze on the top left. Then click Subscribers.
