For Subscribers

August 14, 2014 at 9:35 pm | Posted in Updates | 1 Comment

When I launched this blog 7 years ago last month, I added Feedburner so you could subscribe. Later, WordPress added their own subscription tool and made it automatically active. So the blog developed 2 sets of subscribers. Google then bought Feedburner and stopped developing it.

While I was in grad school, I removed the Feedburner subscription option but didn’t replace it as the road wasn’t clear. Those that use WordPress were still covered but those that don’t have not been served so I’ve now added new subscriber tools on the right. Not the way I’d like to manage this, but for a free blog you get to use the supplied tools.  😉

And now it’s time to clean this up by migrating my oldest subscribers to WordPress. If you’ve subscribed in the last couple of years, you’ll be on WordPress and are fine. It’s my long-term subscribers that will want to migrate.

Email subscribers
If your messages say Google on the bottom right, they’re coming from Feedburner. Please resubscribe on the website. There’s a the new box on the right. I’ll remove your addresses from Feedburner shortly or you can unsubscribe from the bottom of this message. I’ll also send you an email about this as well.

If your messages say WordPress at the bottom, you’re fine.

RSS Feed subscribers
If you followed awhile back, check your feed properties – if the URL includes feedburner, delete it and refollow with the RSS feed at this link or your usual way of adding.

Thanks for your patience in this transition. And thank you for your continued readership. Some of you have been reading for many years.

  1. I’ve shut down Feedburner for this site now. It does turn out to have an automatic forward for RSS subscribers but those email subscribers are now deleted. If you’d like to resubscribe, see the tools on the upper right sidebar.
