Email List Building for Bloggers

This isn't so much a review as a recommendation to read the series of blog posts about List Building for Bloggers (#LBB)  written by Phil Hollows, the Founder and CEO of FeedBlitz .  This is an alternative to Feedburner for pushing out RSS feeds to subscribers which I use.

This series of posts are designed to:
  • help you get the most benefit from your blogging 
  • harness the power and capabilities of email and social media communications network - together with your blog - to build a list of followers.
These are the posts to date on the Feedblitz blog:
