When I started this blog I routed my RSS feed through Feedburner, and now Feedburner is no longer working for my site.
If you subscribed by RSS, please check the feed URL. It should be
which was previously forwarded to a Feedburner URL. If you subscribe directly to the feed with my domain, it should work. I had some problems with it earlier, but I believe they’ve been fixed.
Also, if you subscribed by email, you went through Feedburner. You won’t receive any more posts by email that way. I’m considering possible replacements.
In the mean time, you can sign up for monthly highlights from the blog via email. Each month I highlight the three or four most popular posts. Once in a while I may add a paragraph about what I’m up to. Short and sweet.
You can also find me on Twitter.
Update: Maybe Feedburner is working after all. I’m not sure what’s going on. Still, it seems Feedburner is hanging on by a thread. The steps above are a good way to prepare for when it goes away.

Hmm… Feedly is not showing anything from that link – it recognizes it as your website, but I’m not getting any articles to show up yet…
…Nevermind – they’re all coming through now. Got the big-number-multiply post up through this one all at once.
I actually ran into a problem with the feed. When I run it through a validator, it says it’s valid, but could be improved:
“Feeds should not be served with the “text/html” media type”
For email, I have been using MailChimp. They have an option to send out emails based on RSS feeds. Whenever something new is published to the RSS feed, the following day they send out an email with it.
The next step it to get the email notifications working with post title in the subject line (rather that the generic “The Endeavour”).
May the Force be with You.
Roland: I tried MailChimp’s RSS feature yesterday, but I must have done something wrong. When I tested it, I got an empty email.
It appears Feedburner email is working after all, so I think I’ll stick with it for now. Maybe I’ll revisit MailChimp’s RSS if and when Feedburner dies. I’m still hosting my monthly highlights email on MailChimp.
