As I’ve mentioned, I’ve got my new blog design how I like it (and hopefully how you like it, too.)

There are some great features to the new design, like categories up there ^^ and over here >>
to help you find what you’re looking for. Also, it’s easier to connect with me via social accounts, and is in general is neater and cleaner (not to mention pretty and happy!)

The second phase of my grand cleanup and fine-tuning process was to transfer my feed from Feedburner to Feedblitz.

Feedburner is dying a slow and painful death, as it is not maintained by Google, despite it’s bugs and need for attention. Feedblitz, on the other hand, looks like a fabulously nifty product that should enhance my feed and make it more user-friendly.

But transferring a feed is scary, because there is a wide range of outcomes that you, the readers can experience if you use a feed reader:

  • You might have quit getting my posts with no warning.
  • You might have gotten a bright yellow box instructing you to update your feed.
  • You might still receive my posts just like normal.

So. If you use a feed reader (like Google Reader) and my feed is no longer showing up for you, try re-subscribing with the following URL:

Also, I now have email subscriptions available for the first time ever. So if you would rather receive my blog posts via email, enter your email address in the box on the right side of the screen over there >>
that looks like this:

Email Subscribe

If you have any problems or things don’t work the way I’ve described, let me know and I’ll help you get them fixed!

And if you have no idea what I’m talking about and just come to my site the old-fashioned way, then ignore this entire post.

  1. I use Google Reader and it switched over automatically for me. But I just wanted to say I love feedblitz because now in my reader the comments are much easier to explore!

  2. You young’uns are hilarious. How can coming to your site the old-fashioned way even exist? Cuz back in the day…..THERE WAS NO INTERNET!!!!!

    I do love reading your blog – it keeps me laughing. And reminds me how un-techy I am:):)
