    This new design looks really great. The recent stuff that you guys have been creating is another notch up!

    One question this new design brings to mind:

    Does the RSS/Blog Broadcast feature now support sending the complete content of a particular post? Or is it still limited to just the "excerpt?" (or RSS ‘description’)

    I’m a little confused about how a blog newsletter fits into my current writing. I have a website, blog and newsletter in one niche. How does a blog newsletter fit into this mix? Are the articles in the blog newsletter the same content, just done in newsletter format, or something brand new?

    The value of sending a blog newsletter is in getting one-time or occasional readers back to your blog more regularly.

    Instead of relying on readers to take the initiative to check your blog for new content, they can simply subscribe to your blog newsletter and know whenever you send it.

    Because of this, it should be a service both to you — because it helps you build a following of more regular readers — and your subscribers, who won’t have to waste time redundantly returning to your blog just to see if there’s something new.

    You guys must have been reading my mind, this is exactly what I have been looking for.

    What do I like most about Aweber?

    Continually adding features and benefits that I need and want.

    Keep up the great work guys!

    I like these templates but never do HTML.

    What would be really niche is some templates for Confirm Subscription pages and thank you for subscribing pages.

    Those will help out a lot for deliverability

    I think my question from earlier might’ve been easy to miss:

    Sorry David. I did miss your question earlier. Let’s see if I can help:

    Currently, the blog broadcast feature will pull whatever is between the ‘description’ tags in your RSS feed. Depending on what blog software you’re using, you may or may not be able to change what appears between these tags.

    For WordPress and Blogger, we’ve assembled this quick how to in our Knowledge Base.

    We are also exploring ways to pull in the full post automatically from these and other RSS feeds, something we’ll be sure to announce on our blog.

    Hi Marc,

    No apology necessary. A good lesson in keeping each comment to one subject at a time!

    The Knowledge Base article is actually quite helpful. I was not aware of the possibilities using the "Optional Excerpt" function in WordPress.

    Now it seems to me someone needs to just make a plug-in to automate this… :)

    Thanks for the excellent help, as always!

    Thank you for the chance to view and become familiar with the beautiful templates. At present I do not have a mailing list, however, it is something I am giving thought to. Your company will definitely be at the top of the list should I make that step.

    OK, I’ve tried this template, customizing it with my own blog masthead and colors. When I test it, all the greeked text (Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, etc.) under "In this issue" and "Related Blog Posts" came along for the ride. Plus, the little sailboat pic illustrated my blog post instead of images from my blog.

    I assumed the template was set up to pull the names of the blog articles in this broadcast into the "In This Issue" automatically. Wouldn’t that make sense? If the idea is to automate via the RSS feed, why would I want to fill those anchor links in by hand? Ditto filling in an image or links to "Related posts"?

    I don’t think I messed it up customizing it, because the original Meadows template does the same thing. Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance.

    The template is nicely done and easy to use – thanks!

    Here’s the rookie question: Once I’ve customized the template with my content, how do I send it out to people on my email list? Do I just send a text email with a link to the newsletter, or is there a way to send the newsletter as the email’s content??

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi! I’m a little new to all this…
    The new template looks great! But, I have some..


    1- Is there somewhere I can put "subjects"? Like, i.e. Italy, Mexico, Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, etc.?

    2- Can there also be "subcatagories" under these subject lines ( i.e. "Italy"….Biking in Italy….Places to stay….Rome…Tuscany..?

    3- Can those 3 photos at the top of the blog page be changed to ones I’ve taken?

    Sure – you can change the content as you see fit.

    If you want to have more than one headline and article (like the one on the left in this template), copy the first headline/article in the template, place your cursor just after the end of the article, and paste. That should give you a headline and some body text to use for your 2nd article. Repeat as needed :)

    The 3 photos are really one image – you can replace it with an image of your own by clicking on it and using the Image tool (the button that looks like a sunrise/landscape) to replace with an image from your site.

    I really like this template. I am new to blogging and would like to have a newsletter that corresponds with my blog. This template seems to fit that need. I want to easily share info from my blog directly in my newsletter. Since I’m new to this and am not currently making any money on my blog I’m trying to utilize as many free options as I can to see if there really is an interest. I am using mailchimp to send out my newsletters (for the time being). Is it possible to use this template there? This may be a silly question, but forgive me since this is all a little greek to me. Thanks again for the help!
