email notification for feeds using FeedBurner

Posted by karthikjcecs on December 5, 2008

I wanted to get email notifications when someone writes a comment for my blog. I did the following steps to achieve it.
1. Took the rss feed link for the comments of my blog.
2. Added the feed in FeedBruner . Also created one FeedBurner account as I was not having one
3. In publicize tab of FeedBurner selected email Subscriptions
4. It gave a widget code which I can add it to my blog so that others can subscribe for e mail notifications for my blog comments. Also it gave a link which I can post anywhere, others can subscribe for email notification upon clicking on the link
5. As I was not interested to offer subscription to others but wanted to subscribe myself, so I copy pasted just the link on to the browser address bar. Page appeared asking for the email address, gave my email address. And its done after receiving a confirmation mail
