Feed Address Changed [Maintenance]

closeThis post was published 9 years 10 months 27 days ago. A number of changes have been made to the site since then, so please contact me if anything is broken or seems wrong.

Image representing FeedBurner as depicted in C...Image via CrunchBaseFor those reading this site via the feed, this is just a heads-up that the feed address has changed due to my FeedBurner account being migrated to Google. Email subscribers are unaffected; all that’s changed is the link I have here on the site, in the sidebar, for new subscribers.

If the address you subscribe to is on this domain (i.e. has voyagerfan5761.blogspot.com in it), you’re all set. If you subscribe to the one on feeds.feedburner.com, you’re set, too; but I don’t know how long Google will keep the redirect up, so change feeds to feeds2 just to be safe.

Personally, I don’t know why the addresses have to change, especially when the change is so trivial. It’s possible that, once all accounts are migrated, the old addresses will again become the default, or there might be further changes (perhaps to feedproxy.google.com or something like that).

Given all this uncertainty, my suggestion for feed-subscribing readers who want to ensure uninterrupted delivery would be to change whatever feed currently in your reader to http://voyagerfan5761.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default so any future changes will be taken care of as quickly as I can update my settings. I say “would be” because I’m considering moving to my own domain name, which would complicate things even further. Since I don’t plan to stop using FeedBurner, http://feeds2.feedburner.com/voyagerfan5761 is probably the best bet.
