Jetpack Plugin Adds Email Subscription Option

Wow – this might be the email subscription alternative to Feedburner that many of you have been looking for!

Occasionally I like to call out some neat news related to WordPress that I feel is worth mentioning to my awesome community here and today’s news (or yesterday’s rather) is about Jetpack’s 1.2 update and release that features a sweet email subscription option for your readers!

I’ve already talked about how Jetpack is a must-have plugin but this new feature that allows you to have another option for email subscription (if you don’t like Feedburner) which is pretty slick.

What’s the big deal? Here you go:

  • Now easily add a subscription form right into your sidebar via widget.
  • No need to sign up for an additional service or manage.
  • Users can start subscribing in just a few seconds: Email confirmation and done.
  • Users can adjust their own delivery settings as well.

No joke! It’s a seriously-easy alternative to the many that are available to you already


Bonus: You can easily customize the widget as well.

If you don’t use Feedburner or have been looking for another alternative then check out Jetpack and give it a try.

Either way you need to have an email delivery system. Do you have one? Why not? Go get one!
