</div>
Settings 

  • Replace the url address in green if you want to change the email icon
  • Increase/Decrease the 130 width value for a wider text area
  • Replace http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=blogspot/djVfC with your Feedburner Email Feed link. You can get it by visiting your feedburner account then navigate to Publicize and then to Email Subscriptions.
  • Replace blogspot/djVfC with your feed title. It appear at the end of your feed link. In my case it is http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=blogspot/djVfC

4. Save your widget and check your blog.
