If you get it, share it

Here's my situation. I have a blog at work and a number of crucial members of its readership have requested that I set up a way to have each newly published blog post sent out via email to a subscriber list.

As of right now, Feedburner has a similar service but it only sends out a digest of the previous day's posts. I've kind of hit a wall on this one, just seeing if anyone had a different service in mind. Thanks!

Try AWeber ... it will aggregate on your schedule all of your posts.

I'm sure with a little code customization you can figure out how to make it work for you!

Good Luck.

Thank you, sir! I'll check it out.
MailChimp has a nice RSS-to-email feature, and for under 500 subscribers its completely free. I've used it to do exactly what you're describing.
YES... forgot about Mailchip... even cited it in my last post! Thanks Mike!

You can customize when Feedburner sends out emails. So if you know that you always post before noon each day, you can have your Feedburner email go out at noon. And it will include posts from that day.
Unfortunately, MailChimp doesn't look like it will work in this case. I need a service that will send out each new post in an individual newsletter soon after it publishes. MailChimp is kind of like a prettier version of Feedburner where it only checks the RSS once per day and sends it out in an HTML newsletter. However AWeber looks like it has the right frequency options. I would be all about MailChimp if they at least were able to send out a digest the day of my posts, not the morning after at the earliest.

Thanks for the help guys.
