Email Subscriptions to your LJ

There is a nifty service out there called Bloglet which can be used to allow email subscriptions to your LiveJournal (if you have friends like I do who want to keep track of your LJ but for various reasons do not want even a free LJ account... silly people) :-)

If you go to http://www.bloglet.com/ and sign up and when prompted for type, etc... of you blog specify:

weblog type: RSS
server: http://www.livejournal.com/customview.cgi?username=userid&styleid=90448&nooverride=1
of course substituting userid with your LJ userid
(this works only for Paid accounts BTW)... you will get an email list where you can allow it to post the entire contents of your posts to email.... (you can also restrict it to the first few words, the title, etc).

If you don't have a paid account you should be able to use http://www.livejournal.com/users/userid/rss but you will only get the titles.

What bloglet does is once a day goes out and culls the new posts and puts them all in a single email (One email a day.... yah). and sends them out. It also gives you a small web form you can include in your style to allow subscriptions.
