I just subscribed to Newsblur earlier in the week. It’s really great so far. Only one request at the moment. I love it more if you could simplify the email subject and advert content, from when you email a story from the desktop?
The personal comment gets a little lost wedged in between the repeated subject line headline and the article headline.
Instead of the long subject line “[user] is sharing a story with you entitled [title]” maybe you could shorten it to: “[user] has shared: [title]” The way it is now, the subject lines are all really similar looking when then the subject gets truncated in a small email window.
-I’m totally cool with the Newblur advert at the bottom, but maybe you could shorten that too? 7 links is a lot. Maybe you could link to an about page, or if you want to do all 7 links in the email itself, maybe you could condense and simplify to a row of links, instead of the 3 list sections you have now. example:
Twitter: @newsblur | Github: @samuelclay | Blog | Support | iOS App | Android App | Browser extensions.
Loving the site overall, Thanks for all your efforts.
