moving on from feedburner

I’ve been blogging for almost 8 years and FeedBurner was one of the first services I used. It was a great way to analyze, optimize, publicize, and monetize the RSS feed of a blog. But the recent rumblings of news about Feedburner are scaring me.

So I am slowly letting the Feedburner feed address sunset/die.

This means a couple of things for you:

  • If you get my posts via email, I have already moved your subscription to the Subscribe2 plug-in for you. (You’re welcome.) The email may look different, but there are more options you can work with in your subscription. As always, there’ll be no spam and you can unsubscribe at anytime.
  • If you’d like to subscribe via email, you can at the new subscription page at http://shotgunconcepts.com/subscribe.
  • If you’re an old-school RSS person and get the blog via reader or other method, please make sure you’re subscribed to the site’s normal feed at http://shotgunconcepts.com/feed instead of the Feedburner one just in case Google dumps it in the river unexpectedly. The normal feed is still being redirected until I completely purge everywhere it’s posted. And I may keep it quietly in the background until Google kills it. (in an un-evil way, of course)

  1. Funny to hear RSS described as old school. It was cutting edge once…set to replace email as the primary means of business communication. I was an early adopter of FeedBurner too.
