On April 14, 2021, Google announced FeedBurner's email subscription feature would no longer be available starting July 2021. We know many Typepad users have relied on FeedBurner to email readers when a new post is published to their blog. Read more about the changes coming to FeedBurner on Google's site.
If you're utilizing FeedBurner, you'll want to take some time over the next few weeks to find a new email subscription service that best meets your needs. FeedBlitz, an email subscription service we have recommended over the years, has a great article on what to consider when choosing a new email subscription provider here.
Some things to consider when looking for a new email subscription service:
- Can you import your existing subscribers?
- Does the service provide support?
- Is the service focused on email subscriptions?
- Is there a limit on the number of subscribers?
- Do you want to monetize your feed?
Before the first of July, you'll want to make sure to back up your subscriber list. FeedBurner has information on downloading your email subscribers here. Make this your last step so you don't miss any recent signups.
We have made FeedBlitz easy to integrate with Typepad. Learn more. However, you can also check out Follow.it, which has a free version, or do an online search for other tools. Most services will work seamlessly with your Typepad blog's feed.
If you need any help with the transition away from FeedBurner, just let us know by opening a help ticket in your Typepad account at Help > New Ticket or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
