Giving FeedBurner a try

I’d looked at FeedBurner a few weeks ago when I was setting up WordPress, but I put it under ‘Things To Look At In More Depth Later’ at the time. Google’s acquisition of FeedBurner the other day, bumped it to the top of the stack. I generally favor Google’s services, and if it was good enough for them to acquire, it was worth looking at.

Alex of TiVoBlog also recommended it, and the FeedSmith WordPress plug-in. Tonight I installed FeedSmith and setup both the main blog feed and the blog comments feed via FeedBurner. I’m also trying out some of their additional services – you’ll notice a new ‘Email Subscription’ form in the left column of the blog, and some new links along the bottom of each entry, both on the site and in the feed.

So far things look OK. If you have any feedback, leave a comment. Thanks.
