    Two questions
    1. what is an RSS feed?
    2. I am guessing that video blog is out of the question?

    Great questions, Karyn.

    1. RSS stands for “really simple syndication.” An RSS feed allows your audience to receive updates when new content is added to your blog through the use of RSS or feed readers. It also allows you to automatically send emails to your audience with your latest content.

    2. As long as your blog has an RSS feed URL, you can use AWeber’s Blog Broadcast feature. If you embed videos on your blog, your subscribers will receive emails when new blog posts are published.

    I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any other questions.

    I definitely use the Blog Broadcast feature to automatically send out notifications of new episodes of my podcast. The podcast itself isn’t included in the email, but recipients know that’s what it is: a notification, and if they want to come to the site to listen to the episode using the player embedded on the page it’s just a click away. It’d work exactly the same way for a vlog. And the best part is, it’s completely automated. I set it up once, and it does its job without my having to do a thing.
