RSS Feedburner email

If you’ve already subscribed to my email feed (or other site’s email feed), you’d normally see the same annoying email subject on every new post delivered to your email inbox. Normally it would show my blog’s name on every email you received. Well, no more! Starting from today, you’ll see the post title on the email subjects, allowing you to save and quickly identify your favorite posts from my blog.

If you are a blogger, you might want to keep reading this post as I’ll guide you on how to insert post title in a Feedburner email subject.

  4. You’ll see an “Email Branding” option on the expanded Email Subscriptions menu. Click on it.
  5. Have a read on how to insert a custom email subject on the Feedburner email page. Follow the instructions or you can also copy mine from the screenshot below (I use a “Post title – My Blog’s title” but feel free to use whatever you prefer).Previously, you can only put a static text on the email subject, which was quite lame.
