If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of unhappy Yahoo Mail users who believe that the new interface forcefully implemented and forced on users by Yahoo, is much more of a hinderence in the way of accomplishing anything meaningful via e-mail, then an improvement, you’ve probably tried to change how the interface looks, googled about it, complained about it in the forums, to no avail.
Sometimes even the “big boys” of the internet world have errors in their services, sites, etc.
Here’s a proof: trying to access a link from aweber.com, which was sent to me in an e-mail to confirm a subscription to some ezine, their site showed me an internal server error.
I’m not debating whether it’s a customer’s error, maybe the site that sent me this link, did something to it, modified it, or maybe their system messed up some code
NOT very convincing
You have set up a feed with feedburner. Now what ?
In the previous post in this multipost series (see part I and part II. here) I have presented the challenges of automating some of the repetitive blogging tasks that any serious or professional blogger is faced with, and in today’s post, I’ll try to show you some of the things that you have accomplished if you’ve set up your feed with google’s free Feedburner.
Now that you’ve set up a feed with feedburner (presumably, after reading my 2 previous posts about this), let’s see first of all, how do you set your blog to redirect your readers who access the blog’s original feed, to your new feedburner feed.
On blogger / blogspot blogs, your original feed would be at http://yourblogurl/atom.xml, or
http://yourblogurl/feeds/posts/default (insert your REAL blog URL [address] instead of “yourblogurl” ).
In my previous post about automating your online blogging activities, I’ve highlighted some of the challenges that any blogger that loves efficiency is faced with, and given a general description of what are some of the tools that can be used to automate some of the repetitive tasks, such as twitter, facebook, feedburner, networkedblogs, google plus, stumbleupon, etc.
Today, I am presenting a few things about feedburner that some of you might have not known about, and what this one of Google’s free services can do for you in automating your blogging tasks, and improve your blog and your visitor’s overall on-site experience, reduce your bounce rate, and simply put, make your blogging life easier.
PART II. Using Feedburner to automate your blogging activities.
If you didn’t know about it… Feedburner is a free service offered by Google, through which you can accomplish some very important tasks, if you’re serious about blogging, such as (but not limited to ) the following:
If you come across a situation in which a conditional execution of a text or html widget in wordpress would come in handy, then you know how hard programming a widget to appear only on certain pages, or in certain situation on your pages, can be. That is because, it looks like wordpress creators thought from the very beginning, that everyone has the technical know-how and the level of proficiency in programming as they have, so they must have thought, it should be a no-brainer to learn complex functions, to create algorithms, create plugins, and then integrate into worpdress to extend its functionality.
