I use Feedburner primarily because I like their SmartCast feature for
I also like their FeedFlares, which allow you to choose from many pre-
built ones or you can make your own. FeedFlares are commonly used the
way large publishers add "e-mail this link" after a post. I have
about 5 enabled, and here's what the text looks like:
Email this � Technorati: 2 links to this item � Add to del.icio.us �
Subscribe to this feed � Slashdot This � Digg this
I've protected my main RSS feed by following FeedBurner's directions
for redirecting feeds. The way I understand it is that this allows me
to revert to my original RSS feed and keep my subscribers. It just
requires you to change a few lines of code in one file if memory
serves me correctly. I use WordPress, but you can protect your feed
(it's called a redirect) on other blog platforms.
I also like the stats, and the SmartCast feature made it easy for me
to get up and running about 7 months ago.
My questions don't necessarily all relate to Feedburner. I am curious
in general if partial feeds in blog software cause problems with
enclosures of different media in blog posts.
All the best,
