Thumbtack-purpleI'm excited to share this new series with you, called "101 Blogging Tips". In the series there will be 101 quick, short and sweet blogging tips that you can begin applying to your blog right away!

Tip #15: Make sure you have a "subscribe to my blog" area on your site

SubscribeToMyBlogOne of, if not the #1 reason people have blogs is to have other people follow them.  So…be sure you have a way for your blog readers to follow your blog, better known as "subscribing to your blog".  

Many blogs have this "area" near the top of their blog's sidebar and where visitor's can enter their email address to subscribe to your blog – which means to receive email updates when you post to your blog. Other's like to use a "reader" like Google Reader, so be sure you have that option available as well.

I have used FeedBlitz and Feedburner.  I think Feedburner is much easier to setup and manage, and it's free! So I would recommend that for most (and I use it here on my Blogs By Heather blog), but there are some features FeedBlitz has that Feedburer does not.
