Well that was interesting. I deactivated Jetpack and then I was stuck for a sign-up form for this site. You would think it would be easy.
I found a plugin that would push notifications to subscribers, but who were the subscribers and how would I put a widget on the site to get new subscribers?
I looked at rss-to-email with MailChimp, and got it to work, but then I looked at the notification I got of the last blog post. It said powered by Google. Great. Now what was the name of Google’s RSS service?
It took me ages to remember the name. FeedBurner! Of course, that was where at least some of my subscribers were listed – I already had a list in Google’s FeedBurner. How forgetful of me.
So I went there and got the script for a widget and added it to the sidebar.
That was a lot of effort.
But when I had Jetpack activated. what subscribers was it collecting and who is on that list? And what happens to them now that I no longer have Jetpack installed? Will they still be notified? And if I reinstall Jetpack, what effect if any will it have on the Feedburner notifications?
I installed the Jetpack plugin again (and added the subscriber sign-up widget)
Now I wonder who will get a notification of this post?
