Blogger's Follow by Email ending

Yesterday I received the following message in my Blogger account:

FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner) is going away

You are receiving this information because your blog uses the FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner).

Recently, the Feedburner team released a system update announcement , that the email subscription service will be discontinued in July 2021.

After July 2021, your feed will still continue to work, but the automated emails to your subscribers will no longer be supported. If you'd like to continue sending emails, you can download your subscriber contacts.

If you have subscribed to the "Follow This Blog By Email" feature you will stop receiving the email notifications from this site in July.

I am removing this feature as there seems little point in allowing people to signup for a service that is going away, and I will look for another similar application. If I find one that meets my expectations I will add it as the new "Follow By Email".

Other links Blogger supplied explaining what is going to happen are:

  2. Hopefully you can alert those of us following by email when you get a new method of following by email.

    Perhaps with an email?

    1. Not yet. I just saw the notice yesterday. Just too busy to look now. Probably will not have serious time to look for something until next month. If you find something you think is good please let me know. If you go to the About This Blog page you'll find my email address, so you can use that.
