I'm Feedburning, So Update Your RSS

Dec 10, 2008

Published in


I decided to give Feedburner a try a week or so ago. Why? Curiosity.

I want to know how many folks subscribe to my blog. I definitely know there are four (thanks to my mom, my sister, my boss and my best friend), but perhaps there are more. Oh shit, I just rhymed. I'm a poet and didn't know it. Okay, enough.

Today my friend Jason Beaird posted that he, too, had moved his feeds to feedburner, and he bothered to tell folks.


So now I'm doing the same (I'm always late to the party).

New Feeds

If you are one of those four (or more?) folks already subscribed to A Blog Not Limited, you should update the URL in your feed reader. Here are the new feeds:

Questions, Problems, Concerns

I'm still relatively new to blogging and RSS, and really new to Feedburner. If you encounter any problems, or have questions or concerns about this switch, please let me know.

I recently moved away from Feedburner. I’ve used it for a while, but it seemed to take much longer for them to update than just serving the feeds myself.

It does offer a lot of neat features though and I do recommend it to a number of our clients, but I didn’t feel like it was right for me.

One thing I might suggest is try pointing your original feed address to the new Feedburner links… That way people who were subscribed to the old address wouldn’t have to update their feedreaders, and if you ever decide to leave Feedburner, you won’t have to ask them to update again!

I think this might help: http://underscorebleach.net/jotsheet/2005/07/feedburner-rss-migration

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
