FeedBurner makes subscribing by email easy. Just click on the “Sign up for Email Updates” link in the right hand box on this page. You’ll get the opportunity to choose between signing up for all posts, or only posts in a particular category. (Of course, we recommend getting them all! With an average of 1 post a week, you won’t be overwhelmed with too much unwanted email. You might even learn a new trick or two!) Once you choose your subscription categories, enter your email and type in the secret code provided. You’ll receive a confirmation email – be sure to confirm your subscription. Once you are subscribed, FeedBurner will automatically email you every time there’s a new post on our site. Every email sent to you will give you the chance to unsubscribe if you change your mind.

Most importantly: FeedBurner WILL NOT sell your email to spammers or other advertisers.
