I am flipping things around today. Saturday Six will be on Sunday and Social Media Sunday is today. Considering today is the day that Google’s Feedburner service is shutting down, I thought it was important to post it. There are several great articles on the topic, including this one from Tech Crunch as well as this very thorough one from Melissa at MomComm.
For Misadventures with Andi, I have moved to Feedblitz [affiliate link], I completed the migration today and fingers-crossed the transition will be smooth. I am not usually technically challenged, but I think I have too much on my mind today, so I hope I completed the process correctly! You may get notified to re-subscribe, honestly I am not sure. I was reading the documentation and at one point it was seamless and you wouldn’t be bothered, but on another page it sounded like you would.
If you don’t have email subscribers and you are on WordPress, there is a native plug-in that is easy to update. You simply change your feed url from http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogname to your WordPress feed http://blogurl.com/feed. If you have email you need to consider another service like Feedblitz which is paid (you pay for the number of email subscribers you have, the RSS portion is free). If you use MailChimp [affiliate link] you can use their RSS email subscription service. I decided against this because I wanted to keep my email and RSS services together.
I guess we will muddle through this together! But make sure you do something about it asap!
How about you? What will be your RSS and email solution?
