Can I change the type of email that my followers get when I do a new post

    I have noticed that while the number of followers that I have is increasing, but my stats are not increasing at the same rate. I don’t expect to get the same number of views per day, but I would think it would increase more.

    I have wondered if the reason is is because when my followers get an email they get they get the complete post in the email and there is nothing there to encourage them to come to the blog.

    I have noticed that other blogs just send you a little snippet and you have to go to the blog to read the post. How can I change the emails so that people only get a snippet?

    The blog I need help with is


    Dashboard – Settings – Reading. Where it says “For each article in a feed, show” select the ‘Summary’ option. Then scroll down and click the ‘Save Changes’ button.

    One reason for your stats not increasing might be that people are reading via the Reader and aren’t getting any emails at all!


    I’ve considered that, it is hard, you want the stats, especially since I”ve signed up for wordads, but then you can’t make people look at the physical blog.

    Thanks for your help.
