The automation recipe that we will create is a Blog notification email every time a new post is published.

Choose RSS New Feed item trigger.

Now we need an action. Let’s choose Email channel, and Send me an email action. This trigger will use the email that you have registered in your IFTTT account.

You can setup the email subject and body using available commands (or ingredients). As soon you’re happy click Create Action, and confirm the Creation of the Recipe.
