Now that you’ve finished setting up Feedburner and your email subscription option, you can move on to less-techie and more-exciting tasks like customizing your email feed. This post covers how to add the post title to your email subject, include an image in your email, and change the colors, font style and font size of your posts. All of these changes are performed on the same page within your Feedburner account.

How To Add Your Post Title to your Email Feed

1. Sign into Feedburner. Choose Publicize –> Email Subscriptions –> Email Branding.

How to Add your Logo to your Email Feed

3. You first need to upload your logo to a site like Photobucket that hosts images for free. After selecting the image you want to use for your feed, click on it, then “Get Link Code” and highlight the contents of the “Direct link for layout pages” field.

4. Just below the section in Feedburner where you added a line of code to include your post title in your feed emails, there is a field labeled Logo URL. Paste the Photobucket link into this field.
