With the site redesign successfully complete, I’ve started to turn my technical attention to another matter – FeedBurner. Some of you subscribe to my blog using FeedBurner, via RSS or email subscription. Thanks for that and I appreciate it! However, some of you might know that FeedBurner might be going the way of Google Reader at some point, as in killed off. When Google is going to pull the plug on FeedBurner I don’t know but I’m starting to research my options now to ensure you can stay in touch with me often and easily when FeedBurner disappears.
In preparations for making the shift away from FeedBurner to a more reliable and sustainable provider, I encourage you to subscribe to my blog via email so I have a more confidence I can port all readers’ addresses (including yours) over to a new provider this fall and make a seamless transition for all email subscribers. If you wish to continue reading My Own Advisor only via RSS, that’s OK, simply ensure you have www.myownadvisor.ca entered when prompted by your reader and you should get access to my RSS feed instantly.
Once my research on email providers is done and I make a decision about new services sometime this fall, I’ll let you know about it and give you lots of lead time, so if anything goes amiss you can let me know ASAP but more importantly you always get my mail at your online door.
Enjoy your long weekend and these great articles.
