Feeds on the Brain
So the Feedburner saga continues…
Well, not just feedburner.
My Google Reader Feed list too.
If i showed you how many blogs I’m subscribed to, you’d be appalled.
And then you’d probably laugh your ass off.
Sure, I’ll join this site…then I’m auto subscribed. but what’s the point when GFC goes away for WP and I don’t bloody use the Blogger backend?
I decided this morning to sit in Google Reader and just unsubscribe from all and then resubscribe to those I want easy access to. You know, the ones I read.
One. I can not dump all in a folder. So I can not delete all in bulk.
Two, there’s over 1000 of them suckers. Really.
it’s nothing personal against the blogs. I just need to be better organized.
my favorites come via email, but my Mail app just can’t deal.
I need to be better organized. Seriously…Grrrr.
School starts Thursday. The teens will be gone. That means even less time at the desk. So me and the Google Android tablet…well, we’ve got to learn to be productive, ya’ know?
As for the Feedburner deal…
Well, I’m about to try a very dangerous experiment. As far as the blog is concerned.
I’m going to leave feedburner and start fresh.
I considered Feedblitz, but I’m having issues with trusting my feed to anyone else again.
I have a Mailchimp account – for a while now and it’s never failed me – and there is the option to integrate it with my RSS Feed so people can subscribe and it won’t cost me too much if i all of a sudden get super popular.
Cause you know, that will happen…yeah. Moving on.
I remember this story where Scott, the unmarketing guy, created a video that went viral. Because he didn’t expect it and because there was a cap on his bandwidth, he ended up paying thousands extra for the extra bandwidth used to view the video.
I guess I’m getting a backbone transplant.
I’m going with my WordPress feed address.
Here’s how easy it is to hook it up with Mailchimp.
I don’t have a big audience, but I like to be prepared, ya’ know?
Will I do it tonight?
Oh hell no. I’m too bloody tired. unsubscribed from 700 blogs today. one by freakin one dude.
Don’t want to think anymore.
If Feedburner comes to an end, what are you gonna do?
