I don’t get huge traffic here. However, like many bloggers, I’d like to grow it. Whilst I realize that content is king, and traffic growth doesn’t happen overnight, I’m very much feeling that Feedburner’s somewhat erratic performance isn’t helping to acheive my aims here.
They appear to offer more services, and from what I gather from other users, better reliability.
So, to that end, I’ve shut off the links here to Feedburner.
If all goes well I shall be doing this on all the blogs I maintain and administer over the next couple of months.
If you’re reading this via the feed, you’ll still get this for the next 30 days. In about 15 days, you’ll get a reminder that the feed is closing, and the easiest way to change to the new FeedBlitz feed is to simply unsubscribe from the current feed in your reader, and resubscribe with the RSS link in your browser address window, or the little RSS FEED icon, on the left hand side.
If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a line, a tweet, a comment on friendfeed, or a comment on this post.
A report from ZD Net states that heavy bloggers read other blogs more than they read any other type of site.Â Well, is this true? I do a fair bit of blogging, but I’m probably not a heavy blogger – well I’m not a professional blogger (although I’d love to get paid to blog all day!)
Anyway, looking at my online reading choices – I do have a number of other blogs in my feed reader, but I also like to read news sites, and productivity sites as well.Â I think it’s important, as a blogger, to read other content around you, as otherwise you can become very insular, and your outlook on the world can become somewhat stunted, blinkered, and narrow-minded.
