I’ve moved away from Google FeedBurner. So, it’s time to update your feed URL.
If your feed URL is http://christopherprice.net/feed/ then you’re all set. If not, you need to update to that URL.
I’ll keep the old FeedBurner setup working, but you may be delayed by as much as several hours to get news. Yeah, it’s my personal blog, but still, I’m someone that always likes to have the fastest path to a news feed.
When I signed onto FeedBurner, it was hailed as a rocketing startup that promised faster, more reliable feeds… with monetization that the blogosphere didn’t offer at the time.
Since then, Google has gobbled up the company, and I have to say… it’s not one of Google’s finest hours. The transition to AdSense in-RSS ads has been a dismal failure, and the product has languished under Google’s monolithic oversight.
Hopefully Larry Page’s “cutting the fat” campaign will give Google some added attention to products like FeedBurner. I really do hope that will happen, but this is long in the making. I noted quite awhile ago my intent to disable Google services that have been languishing… this is merely making good on that commitment.
