Mashable! FeedBlitz Offers Web 2.0 Newsletter Tools

Thank you to Kristen over at Pete Cashmore's Mashable! blog, coverage of our new Newsletter Edition service.
"With the Newsletter Edition, FeedBlitz essentially aims to improve the very
purpose of the traditional newsletter by extending the targeting and
personalization options of a newsletter to blogs, instant messaging, and more,
and doing the reverse for the newsletters themselves."

OK, so they don't like the name, but there's no pleasing some people :-) Read the full article here.

Mashable Highlights FeedBlitz's New Tracking Feature

My thanks to Pete Cashmore for the mention. He says:

Feedblitz Tracks Links in Posts - Feedblitz, the RSS service that’s focused
