Readers who are accustomed to reading our content on the feed, which I set up several years ago with Feedburner, may have noticed that the feed stopped updating a few days ago. This has happened before with Feedburner, so I didn’t think much of it at first, but after a couple days I started to wonder what was going on.
Turns out Google may be preparing to shut it down, which is an ominous development for small publishers like myself.
Fortunately, however, if it turns out that Feedburner is really set to go away, I can redirect for a month to the original feed, and I already have an email subscription service set up through Aweber.
For now, I disabled redirection to Feedburner (if it isn’t updating there’s no point), so you can access the feed at the native feed URL: the-spearhead.com/feed
I’m going to wait and see what happens with the feed for the next couple days, but given Google’s recent moves I’m not all that optimistic about Feedburner. For now, just use the above link to access the feed, and it should work until I decide to use another feed publisher or simply go with the native feed permanently.
