When I opened my Blogger blog, I just took it for granted that everything it provided would be good enough for my needs. I activated my feedburner rss and email services and I was done. Readers would would automatically get new post updates when they were published and I wouldn't have to worry about anything. Set it and forget it. Wrong!
Last night this is what I saw on my subscription info.
Hmmm, didn't I have some subscribers?? I panicked. Then I checked back a few days.
Yes, there they were. But where did they go? Had I lost all my readers?? I started to sweat. What to do...some quick research and blogging buzz seemed to point to a phasing out of feedburner in October. No announcement or notice to its users if this was the case, so I decided to find a new email service. Mail Chimp to the rescue thank goodness. Now all my email subscribers will get a new and hopefully more useful newsletter.
In case you were wondering, I need to find a new rss service as well so my visitors who subscribe in a reader aren't left out in the cold.
