I use Feedburner.com to manage my RSS feed. Those of you reading this in Google Reader or something similar will know what this means. Therefore, I’m only talking to you. The rest of you can go look at pr0n or something.
Way back when, Google bought Feedburner. Also way back when, I became a lot less active with the blogging. Fast forward to now. I go to log in to Feedburner and I’m greeted with a Google account page and it wants me to use my old Feedburner username/password to claim my feed. Ok, no biggie. Only it won’t take my username. Or any variation thereof. And it doesn’t recognise any of my email addresses to send me a new password. Fuck me with a chainsaw.
Why do you give a shit? Mainly because my feed URL is probably going to change and if you’ve subscribed to the old one you won’t get any more new posts from me! I’m sure that, to some of you, that sounds like a fantastic thing, but I am assured that there are at least 3 people for whom this will be a problem.
So be prepared. It may change soon as I wrestle with how to get control of my feed again. In the meantime, just keep my blog open in a tab in your browser and hit refresh every hour or so. Better safe than miss one of my posts and have the chupacabras after you. #justsayin
