Desktop email sharing simplification

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.

Brilliant idea! Just redesigned the email. Tell me what you think.

Wow! Awesome. That’s fantastic. Thank you much.

How do I email a story from the desktop please? I see the Share button but no ability to then share using my email client.

There’s a send to email button in the menu when you right-click a story title. I’ve been meaning to expose that better because it’s so darn handy.

Thanks Sam, I see it.
I have a suggestion too - It’d be nice to have the option of emailing the content too, as shown in TEXT mode. 
All the best,Shane.
