How to Create a Mailing List for Blogger

How to Create a Mailing List for Blogger

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

When you create a new blog entry in [Blogger] you may want to alert all your friends and family. Blogger only has the option to send an e-mail to a single address. Using Google Groups you can forward this e-mail to a whole list of people.


  1. Create your [Google Groups] account. You must have a Gmail (Google Mail) account to do this. You can sign up for a [Gmail account] free. Once set up, make a note of the address you will use to send e-mail to your group.
  2. Add people to your group. Click on the "Members" tab on the side and "+ invite new members". Now you can either invite members by e-mail, or add members directly. Write a quick note to explain why they are receiving this e-mail.
  3. Set your blog to send e-mail to your new Google Group. In your Blogger Dashboard click on "Settings" and then "Email". In the BlogSend Address enter the e-mail address for your Google Group. Alternatively, you can also just manually send an e-mail to your Google Group from your normal e-mail address whenever you update your blog.
  4. Create a Subscribe box for your blog's gutter. Back on your Google Group homepage, click on "Tune your group's settings" at the bottom. Now click on "Get a promotion box for your website". Scroll down to the "Subscribe box for your web page". Copy the HTML code below this to the clipboard. Now go back to your Blogger Dashboard (in a different tab/window) and click on "Layout". Click on "Add a Page Element" (the sidebar one will be best). Select the "HTML/JavaScript" option. Now paste in the HTML code you copied earlier. Click "Save Changes" and take a look at your blog!


  • If you are handy with HTML code, you will notice that the Google logo in the Subscribe Box can be switched for another image file. Just make the tag point to a small image you have hosted somewhere.
  • If the Subscribe Box is not formatted correctly after changing the image, try adding width="200" and align="center" to the tag immediately before it says "Email:". Adjust this width if it still doesn't look right.


  • Only add people directly to your Google Group if you know that they want to be added, otherwise you will be sending spam. If you try to directly add a list of people, Google may want you to explain why before they will process it. This is to prevent spammers from using Google Groups.
