How to shorten Feedburner Emails
How do I shorten Feedburner Emails? For me this was not intuitive, and even after I found how to do this, I still had trouble remembering where it was.
1. Log into Feedburner.
2. Click on the website you are working on.
3. Open the Optimize tab.
4. At the very bottom on the left hand side is: Summary Burner.
5. Here you can set the length and write up your own teaser and all you have to do to set it is Activate it. It really is easy, if you can find it!
Tip: I had originally thought that by shortening the email it would drive people to my site to read the rest of the post. But now my preference is to send the whole post.
Honestly I want to send the shortened post in email because I think it takes up less space and loads faster in email.
What I don't want is to have a shorten post on RSS feed. I wish I could have a setting for emails and RSS feeds. I personally will unfollow RSS feeds that don't show the whole post, I like to read them fast and if I have to click onto their website for the whole post, it takes too much time.
I am thinking of converting to Mail Chimp for emails. I will keep you posted on what I decide.
