I didn’t know what a merry ride of inspiration this last week and more would be when all of a sudden Feedburner stopped distribution of my blog. It was something I didn’t monitor, didn’t care about, and didn’t want to learn; until it was broken. Then it was forced attention; the kind I love to hate.
Miraculously, a direct email campaign arrived in my box from FeedBlitz, “How To Migrate From Feedburner to FeedBlitz” with an ebook. That was all it took; didn’t care that I had to pay after a 30-day free trial (most things cost something) and didn’t care to do my research for something better. The timing was right and FeedBlitz has a reputable brand.
On my merry-go-round that is still circling, I had the pleasure of getting acquainted with Phil Hollows, the very accessible CEO of FeedBlitz who manages support questions, to my surprise.Read More →
By now everyone knows I’m on a Feedblitz migration kick. My post this week launched a barrage of migrations from Feedburner to Feedblitz, many blog posts about it and even more thinking about how and when and why to do it.
I’ve already been in touch with Phil Hollows, CEO of Feedblitz , to invite him to do a Q&A with me – heck, we may even do a video or podcast? Should I get that crazy with him? I’ll try to address the many troubles readers are concerned with; including me!
Put that aside…here’s the really exciting thing this morning!

I’m pointing a finger at Phil Hollows, the CEO of Feedblitz, with whom I’ve become so very acquainted over these last 10 days since I decided to migrate from Feedburner to Feedblitz.
I wrote a blog post on my experience (link above), and Phil wrote a case study including me alongside my good friends Danny Brown and Jay Baer. No one would argue these two are short of A-listers (because all the A-listers fully deny they’re anything at all related to such a moniker).
What Phil said in his case study about my blog is that I am a “little known blogger.” (He said after that he should have said, “little known to him.”)Read More →
There’s one thing that’s dead for sure — Feedburner, without a doubt. One day this week, Feedburner stopped sending my blog to Triberr and anywhere else. My blog was dead, too, because no subscribers or RSS feeds were getting my material.
Why? Because Google bought Feedburner for $100 million in 2007 and shut it down.
As a blogger concerned with the front end and nice words you see on these pages, I didn’t pay attention to the hubbub surrounding Feedburner…until I was forced to pay attention.Read More →
