Keeping in Touch: Feed Burner or Feed Blitz?

Hello to all my wonderful authors, guests, fans and followers!

As with anything that happens on the web, change is inevitable.  Same goes for Page Readers.

I've been doing a lot of research into the best way to get the word out, keep you informed and of course, promote the authors who honor me with their appearance on Page Readers.

For some time now I've been using Feed Blitz to send out weekly blog updates to everyone who subscribes.  In some ways it has worked well, in others not so well.

During the course of my reading and research to keep up with the changes that seem to occur daily online, I've read that Feed Burner is a better way to go. 

The point of this post?  I would love to get some feed back from any of you who use Feed Blitz or Feed Burner to promote your sites.  What do you use? What do you like, and what don't you like, about either of them?

Do you like getting the once a week update, or would you prefer to get updates sent to your RSS Reader as they happen?

I welcome your emails and/or comments left here on the blog.  Comments could help others with their own RSS/Promotion issues.  If you have done your own research, please share!  I also welcome links to other information out there - books, articles other blogs!


  1. I use Feed Burner. With it, my blogspot blog automatically feeds to my GoodReads blog (hence saving me some time). I have also grabbed a Feed Burner widget that I've placed on my Web sites. It rotates 5 of my current blog post titles and links to either the Feed Burner blog listing, or directly to my blog. I set it to go to my blog.
    I haven't been blogging too long, and I just added Feed Burner a few weeks ago, but my stats are up, so I guess it's working.
    As far as updates--I really resist having anything more coming into my email inbox. Talk about overload!

  2. Kae - thanks for the comment! I haven't figured out all the bells and whistles yet, but will take a look at your stuff to see how you're doing it. Send me your url? I agree about the email overload. I think we're all getting a little overwhelmed in the inbox.
