One of the reasons I’ve been able to survive in this business for over 20 years is the ability to be flexible, open to change — and ahead of the curve.
Another part is my gut — you know what I’m talking about. You see things around you changing or evolving, or you have to make an important decision and your gut is telling you to “Do It!”, “Go for it!”, “Better now than later!”. Some folks, like me, learned a long time ago to not ignore my gut! Now, my gut is going off about FeedBurner…
FeedBurner is the Google service used to “feed” many WordPress site updates via RSS to subscribers. Site visitors can signup for updates, usually in a box in the sidebar or footer, and every time a new post is added to your site it goes out to the list. While to some, FeedBurner is anemic in features, it always did what I and many of my clients needed to do.
While Google allowed FeedBurner.jp to expire and they’ve shut down the FeedBurner Blog and Twitter account. So, what do you think lies ahead? Not sure — I still use is on one of my busiest sites.
If you’ve followed me you know I am a big StudioPress fan — and affiliate — for good reason. Besides the unbeatable quality of their themes, since way back when, they’ve been ahead of the curve. And StudioPress is once again proving this point by introducing their eNews Extended Plugin for Genesis-Powered WordPress sites.
StudioPress and the Genesis Framework makes it uber easy for to get your list and sign ups moved to a service you trust will be around. My faviorite is MailChimp because it is easy, fast and provides a ton of options to customize any way you like — and it’s free for up to 2,000 subscribers!
At your service,
