If you’re subscribed via email to my blog, you may have noticed that you kept getting old posts delivered to your inbox.
Feedburner (the email client I used) was misbehaving, so I gave it the boot.
The first time it happened, it was because I transferred by blog from http to https – meaning everything is now all secure. Yay! So it re-indexed my entire site and thought everything was new, because the URL now had an S in it. Boo. That was annoying, but I could forgive them for that.
The second time it happened, it was because I edited some old posts. Well, I clicked on ‘edit’ but then I didn’t actually change anything. But apparently, this was enough to send Feedburner into a tizzy, and they sent out an email again. This was not acceptable to me.
So, I’m sorry if I’ve annoyed you. I fixed the problem. I moved everything off of Feedburner and created an official mailing list through Mail Chimp. Since I’m now on WordPress instead of Blogger, I’ve decided to stop using Feedburner entirely, not just for my email list but for all RSS subscriptions too.
What this means for you: if you subscribe through Feedly or some other RSS client, you can update your subscription link if you want. My feed is now https://tianasmith.com/feed. It will still redirect even if you don’t. You might get new posts a little faster if you update your link. If you’re subscribed by email, you don’t have to do anything because I already migrated you over.
So, yeah, technology is fun, isn’t it?
