A quick question!

I have been wondering about Feedblitz recently and I am not sure it's very useful to people. Can you let me know your thoughts? I know it sends an email when I post, but it arrives HOURS after I post and I am not sure of it's usefulness.....

Would you prefer if I did a short personal newsletter for you all, say once a week telling you what's happening during the coming week with my freebies and store kits etc? Would that be more interesting to you than Feedblitz which just gives you the post in a newsletter after the event? I won't stop Feedblitz, although if I do a personal newsletter, you may want to unsubscribe.... I would love to hear your thoughts on this!

Feedblitz is fine with me, though a personal note in addition would be fine. You are right though the newsletters are usually a day or so behind.

Your new tote looks like a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy your scrapping session. How did the date with DH go? Hope Pompey and Lily were good while you were away. Leaving you some love.

I am a signed up follower and so ger your blog posts in my google reader which I usually check at least 2x a day.
Don't use feedblitz so can't really help with that kind of feedback. I love your kits though and appreciate all your hard work.

I am a "follower" of your blog & I think that is probably the best way to get updates. My Blogger dashboard shows every post you (or anyone else I follow) make within a minute or so of you posting it. I check it a few times per day usually.
Maybe your best bet might be to explain to readers how to use this feature. I use Blogger dashboard but I guess Google Reader works the same way because when I add a new site I wish to "follow" it always ask me which one I want to use (Blogger Dashboard or Google Reader).

I do like the feedblitz - I use it with google reader & it is so much easier than keeping up with blogger or other things for me - -I think it is great that you care enough to ask

My blog is my home page and I'm on my computer here and there throughout the day, I have your blog posts pop up on my blogger home page when they update, so that's what's useful to me. I don't know anything about feedblitz.

I use google Reader and follow you religiously. I don't know much about feedBlitz. I know that my life is a lot easier since I've found Google Reader. i know I would subscribe to any news letter that you offered because I am a huge "VICKI FAN"

I signed up for your feedblitz before I had discovered Google Reader. Now I see your blog from there (so I'm actually getting it twice!).
So, a newsletter from you would be great, and I'd most likely unsub from feedblitz.

I use Feedblitz -- its the only way I can keep up with the many blogs I follow --- I don't have time to hop from blog to blog, love getting them *all* in one newsletter in my email --- even if its the next morning... rarely is there anything so earth shattering that it can't wait till morning (and otherwise I probably wouldn't get around to looking in a more timely manner anyway). Thanks again for all the goodies you share with us!

I use Feedblitz, also. It's the only way I get to see everybody I'm interested in. I've don't have a blog so don't use blogger and I find I have enough Toolbars on IE as it is. I use my desktop calendar alot but only set my different sites to pop up every 2 or 3 days. Love Feedblitz and love your designs. TFS.

I don't know about the feedblitz feature. But I can tell you the easiest way to keep up with your blog -- religiously check it everyday! LOL :)

I use feedblitz but I subscribe to your RSS feed as well and read it there as soon as you post.

I haven't actually heard of feedblitz before now...

Feedblitz isn't great....I check your blog most days and have usually read your updates by the time the feedblitz email arrives! A newsletter would be great :)

A newsletter would be wonderful.

I use Feedblitz, but would love the newsletter also. if you can get Yahoo to accept it. LOL. You know I love ya Vicki! :)

I am not really of any use here. I added your blog to google/gmail reader and I get instant updates when you post. I find this service really useful and it does everything for me!

I like feedblitz because it reminds me to check your blog every day. I suppose it's more 'in your face' if you know what I mean.

Ruth said...

Just want to say that you don't need to have your own blog to use Blogger to follow others. I don't have a blog & I use Blogger every day. Once you register - free & easy (basically your email address & a password), you get a Dashboard which is sort of a "home page" with them. It will give you update on any blog you add to your follow list. Many blog have a
"follow this blog" button on them. If you click that it will be added to your list. Also, all blogger blogs have a button at the top that says Sign in. If you are signed in (I stay signed in all the time), it also has a button that takes you to your Dashboard.
YEAH -ummm, I just made that sound waaaaaaaaaaaaay harder than it is. ROTFL Basically sign up, sign in, click to stay signe in & you're done. You can then go directly to your updates from any blogger blog & add new blogs instantly - right from their page.
