|Deliver your blog posts to readers via e-mail.|
For today's challenge, add an e-mail feed to your blog. There are many ways to increase traffic to your blog, but one that has paid huge dividends for MNINB is adding Feedblitz to the blog.
As the subscribers to my e-mail feed have increased, my blog traffic has increased as well. In fact, after great content, I'd say that adding share buttons (from Day 7) and an e-mail feed are the top two ways to build traffic.

Though I have an account on Tumblr, I'm just not sure if it offers some kind of e-mail/RSS feed service.
The reason I think e-mail feeds are so useful is that they pop into my inbox whenever a new post is up, which means I can check it very easily on my phone when I'm waiting somewhere. In fact, this is how I keep up with several of my favorite blogs. It's just one more way to make your blog content accessible to readers in a variety of formats.
If I remember, this task didn't take me long to add, but I've been grateful for finally getting around to adding it ever since.
