Blog Feed updated to FeedBurner with exclusive contents for subscribers

By , January 28, 2009 12:39 am

Dear readers,

As part of optimization to give you better experience with this blog, I have replaced the default feed from taitran.com/blog/feed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/TaiTran

What does it mean?

It means when you click on the RSS button on your browser, you will be redirect to the FeedBurner RSS feed without going to the default WordPress feed.

What’s the advantage of the FeedBurner feed?

While the default feed only contains blog entries, the FeedBurner feed aggregates well-selected Business and Technology news from multiple trusted sources.

Occasionally, interesting presentations and slide shows are also introduced via the FeedBurner feed.

These resources are only offered to FeedBurner feed subscribers, and is not otherwise available.

So what?

If you had previously subscribed to the default WordPress feed, kindly spend a few seconds to update the feed address to http://feeds.feedburner.com/TaiTran

If you have not subscribed to the FREE updates, please feel free to do so with your own RSS Reader or via email update.

If you have subscribed via email, that is the FeedBurner feed already and you don’t have to update anything.

http://feeds.feedburner.com/TaiTran is always available for you.

Regards,
TaiTran
