While I am not one of them, some people prefer to get news and updates via email instead of checking blogs or using an RSS reader.

If you have any sources that you’d like to get in your email instead of your RSS/Feed reader, one easy way to make that happen is by setting up a “recipe” using IFTTT.com.

Note for blog/site owners:
If you have your own site and you’d like to make this easy for your readers, check our Mail Chimp’s RSS-to-Email feature. This is a great way to publish your content once and send it to your email subscribers automaticaly. Mail Chimp even handles the subscribe/unsubscribe work for you.
