It’s A Deep (feed)Burn(er)

By June 27, 2008 2 Comments

You probably have no idea what just happened, unless you are me, or very very similar to me, but if that is the case, then you may notice that the nifty little Subscribe your RSS button on the right column no longer points you to temptation to, but now sends you to yay feedburner!

But what does that even mean, Matt asks? FeedBurner lets you as the web site owner / creator / grand overseer / high emperor / whoever can now know more things that you could before. Mainly, when someone subscribes to your RSS feed via FeedBurner, FeedBurner keeps track for you of the fact that hey, someone just subscribed to your RSS feed. see, normal RSS feeds like to be seen just as much as FeedBurner feeds, but they are lazy, or at the least, they don’t know any better, and don’t particularly care to tell you if anyone cares about them. Maybe that is already the result of some massive self-esteem-destroying downward spiral. Or maybe RSS feeds don’t have self-esteem to begin with. Either way, FeedBurner will tell you who all is subscribing to your feeds, how many people read them, who clicks on things you ask them to click on, and much more. Quite nice.

  • At the end of the day, she is yet another blogger of recent note who manages to make Jessica Quirk seem downright adorable. I wonder if we’re nearing a tipping point of blog culture where all the “normal” stuff finally gets buried forever under an avalanche of unicorn shit.
