RSS Feed Update (or Feedburner Has Become Unreliable)

Is Feedburner Shutting Down?

There have been a few rumors but no official announcement on the fate of Feedburner. Last week I noticed that statistics were unavailable but the feed was still working. How long that will last is anyone’s guess.

Years ago when I first started the blog I used Feedburner to provide my RSS feed and email delivery. A year or two ago WordPress improved their subscription services and I switched my feed to their system but left Feedburner active. As a result, I have subscribers using both feeds. Unfortunately I don’t know who subscribes to which feed.

What does this mean for you?

For most of you, nothing. The majority of my subscribers are using the WordPress subscription system. How can you tell which one you are using? If you have an email subscription through Feedburner it will say “Email delivery powered by Google” at the bottom. The RSS feed will be coming from: “”. If you currently have a WordPress blog you are probably subscribed through the WordPress system.

To subscribe to my WordPress feed:

    I’m glad I’ve never liked reading in a feed reader, hence, I’m subscribed by e-mail. This situation with feedburner has created quite a furor! Thanks for the info.
