Default Bloglet email Subscription

I found a neat application to enhance a blog. Bloglet.com lets you create an email subscription base for your blog. the blog posts are emailed once a day to your subscriber base. Below are a few pros and cons.


Pros
- Easy to install and set up.
- easy for readers to subscribe to.
- You controll how much they see via email (first 100 chars or whole article)
- Accepts RSS feeds, Blogger feeds, and other formats
(note for using WordPress, USE RSS, and set the RSS feedURL to your "wp-rss.php" url not wp-rss2, it has a date format issue.)
- Keeps your blog infront of readers as often as you update (or daily)
- User can subscribe to other blogs and get 1 email summary.

Cons
- May reduce visits to your site which may reduce potential ad revenue.
- email may be treated as spam and deleted or not delivered.
- You might be competing with other blogs on the email, so make sure content is unique and not the same article everyone else is quoting.

I thought I'd put it out there for a test. I limited my post to the first 200 characters so they have to come to my site to view the whole thing.
