(Feedburner) is going away
It is definitely bad news for Blogger users who we are using Google Feedburner for Email Subscription without any cost. But today we have received an email about Upcoming changes to FeedBurner

Blogger has also announced a notice in dashboard - FollowByEmail Widget (Feedburner) is going away!

According to their announces - 

  1. FeedBurner will not be discontinued but Email Subscription service in July 2021. So we can't use FollowByEmail Widget for collecting emails. 
  2. FeedBurner will be continued and is going onto a more stable, modern infrastructure. So we can use it only for Feed. 
  3. For Email Subscription they recommend to export a list of our email subscribers and of course we have to do.

Google FeedBurner Alternatives for Email Subscriptions

No doubt, we will not get any free Email Subscription services like Feedburner. But the following premium services are the best alternatives. 

  1. Follow It
  2. MailChimp
  3. Aweber 

You can easily import all your exported CSV data here and integrate subscription box to your Blogger as HTML/JAVASCRIPT widget. 

Personally, I am very disappointed to Google. They should at least keeping Email Subscription feature.
