Have you ever wanted to have your blog posts emailed out to your readers? Have you heard of Feedburner but never knew what it was? FeedBurner provides custom RSS feeds and management tools to bloggers, podcasters, and other web-based content publishers. It's a handy dandy Google feature that you might just want to try.
Feedburner is easy to add to your blog NOW. All you have to do is add it as a Gadget through Blogger (and/or other platforms). This may currently be a Indraft ability, so please check your Gadgets in regular Blogger and Blogger Indraft.
Click on Add a Gadget and add Follow by Email.
Your Feedburner URL should automatically be picked up by Blogger.
Click on your blog's name to go to statistics
Your statistics are easy to read. Statistics
tell you how many are subscribed to your blog
through Feedburner. It also gives you an analysis
of who read your post that day through Feedburner.
Here are a few Feedburner links:

Some Feedburner oddities might include: Difficulty navigating Feedburner information and getting true Feedburner statistics, and when you don't post on a particular day a random post is chosen by Feedburner to send out.
