Hello, I'm probably about a week out from launching my new blog. I'm currently set up with FeedBurner to handle the RSS/Atom Feed, and I had also signed up for FeedBurner to handle email subscriptions, as well. But unless I've overlooked it, it appears that I would not know the email address for any who sign up using FeedBurner's email subscription service.
If it's true that I would not have access to my email subscribers' addresses, I was hoping to get some feedback from others here about whether I should even worry about that. While I won't be producing email newsletters anytime soon, I'm wondering if I should make the effort to have more control of my email subscribers from the outset. Or is that something that's not necessarily important at the start?
Is there a WordPress plugin that will automatically notify email subscribers of updated posts? Or would I need to use an outside source for that -- and if so, what would you recommend? If I should go with an outside source, my hope is that setting up the service wouldn't deplete my already-taxed brain cells!!
That's it! Thank you for *any* feedback/direction you can give on this.
