Feedburner and Blogger

    July 12, 2007

Feedburner, recently acquired by Google, has taken a step for their users using another of Google’s products, Blogger.

Feedburner push button solutions for Blogger

I know what many are thinking…

Blogger and WordPress.org blogs are for fair-weather or social bloggers… but I think that anyone that contributes (not copies) content to the Internet are valuable.

From Burning Questions:

…we are very excited to announce the immediate availability of one-click redirection for Blogger Blogspot blogs (note our fine use of both alliteration and first syllable congruence).

If you host your content on a Blogger blog with a blogspot.com address (or use Blogger’s “custom domain” feature), you can now redirect your native Blogger feed to your FeedBurner feed (quite easily, might we add). Gone are the muggy, languorous days of wrestling with “autodiscovery” tags in foreboding corners of your Blogger template code or hacking through this tangled discussion thread for a glimpse of configuration clarity.

OK, so Google is looking out for their users, right? Well, I think that any and everyone should be able to track their users, and those on a blogger domain that want to track their readers are using it for more than mere “social purposes.”

I will be honest, I started on blogger, something that I wish I could have changed, but I think that it does have a valuable place on the Internet.
