Goodbye, Feedburner--Important news for my subscribers

As many of you have already probably heard, Google is doing away with Feedburner.  What a big pain in the you know what for a lot of users.  Even more for me because I have eleven blogs to do this for! So, I'm starting out here with The True Book Addict.  If you are subscribing to my feed, please resubscribe to my new feed HERE.  Also, if you're an email subscriber, I will be using MailChimp from now on for email subscribers so be expecting what you receive in your inbox to look a bit different.  I thank you in advance for bearing with me during this transition.  If you are a subscriber at any of my other blogs, I will be transitioning all of them within the next week and I will let you know on each blog.  Again, I thank you for being a loyal subscriber!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. How does one change over? People subscribe to me, too. How can I switch to this? I had no idea...

  2. I only see that Google is discontinuing AdSense for Feeds and the FeedBurner API. At present, the main FeedBurner service is not slated to end. Many in the blogosphere are fairly certain it's only a matter of time after the recent outage (but I believe feeds were delivered even if the stats were broken).

    You're welcome to switch services whenever you like, but so far the rumors of FeedBurner's death are exaggerated.

  3. Also, if you're using the Site Feed option through Blogger to redirect your RSS feed, updating that feed address should redirect subscribers who aren't directly subscribed to the FeedBurner address.

  4. No! I haven't heard this! What a nightmare! Grr. I'll have to go back to mailchimp too.

    "... the main FeedBurner service is here to stay."
