30383RE: [podcasters] Feedburner help
- Jun 4, 2007I have been pretty vocal about FeedBurner over the past couple of years and
while I am sure some people are happy with the Google acquisition it does
bring home some points I have been warning people a long time about. I have
had at least a 100 emails from podcasters asking me how to get their users
back on their own feeds on their own domains. I tell them to contact
FeedBurner about setting up a redirect back to their original feed. But I am
afraid no mater what those that will quit using their service is going to
end up loosing listeners over the transition unless they are paying for the
feeds.mydomain.com service they had.

Feedburner makes my brain itch; I don't get exactly how things are going
to change there, with all their talk about feed-based advertising. When I
saw a link right on the sign-in page to opt out of the service entirely by
June 15, alarm bells started going off.
And I don't even want to look into this Wizzard Media thing. I like
Feedburner, but I need Libsyn. But maybe it'll all be okay.
