Importing followers (email subscribers) from Feedburner

  1. Hi - Up until April 2010 I was using feedburner to allow blog readers to subscribe to email updates from my blog. When WordPress.com offered the 'Follow blog' widget, I switched to that. The feedburner notifications are still active, however, and I've still got 66 people who receive updates via feedburner. I'd like to import those subscribers into my WordPress.com Email Followers and shut down the Feedburner service altogether. Can I import those email addresses from a CSV file? Do I need staff help to do so?

    The blog I need help with is moonovermartinborough.com.

  2. Hmm - good question! I've never been asked this.

    I don't believe you can import in the manner you're thinking of. You can add them 10 at a time (by email address) here:
    https://martinborough.wordpress.com/wp-admin/users.php?page=wpcom-invite-users

    It's not quite the seamless interface for your users that you're looking for, but you may be able to mitigate that by posting about the feature (and perhaps picking up some more followers in the process!) and then sending out your invite.

    I'm sorry I don't have a better answer!
