How To Burn Your Blogger Feed At Feedburner

You just finished your first blog post. Wow. Now, how do you get it out there on Web 2.0? Google bought a feed service called Feedburner. If you go to Wikipedia and look up Feedburner, you will find comments about tracking viewers, and direct RSS feeds from blogs. It is all about providing your blog updates automatically to subscribers. Visitors to your blog can get an RSS feed by subscribing. One of the best providers of this service is Feedburner.

OK, that’s some of the why. If you have a new blog, you want to know the how. Go to the FeedBurner website. Click on the register. You will be redirected to a signup page. Pick a username (make it obscure, as most common names have been taken). Pick a password. Specify a personal question and the answer. Click sign in. You will be redirected to your feeds page. As you have not burned any feeds yet, none will be listed. After you have some boiled dinners, they will be listed on this page with the feed title, subscribers, and site visitors.

To burn your first feed, type the full URL of your blog where it says, burn a meal right this instant. For now, ignore the podcasting and click next. You will be redirected to a page titled Identify Feed Source. Choose the RSS source; the second choice is offered if you use Blogger. Click next. Now you are on a page titled Welcome! Let us burn a feed for you. Ensure the title and the feed address are correct. Press activate feed. Now you are at a page title; congratulations! Your Feedburner feed is live. Press next. Now you are at Getting More Gusto. Check the box for; I want more have the Feedburner track… Press next. You are now at the feed management page for the blog feed you just burned.


This is the page from which you can upgrade your feed with extras. To reach this page another time, go back to the home page of Feedburner. Sign in with your username and password. It would help if you were now on my feeds page, which lists all your feeds. To go to the feed management page for a specific meal, click on the feed’s name in the list.


Go to the feed management page to complete most of the details associated with burning a feed. Click on the Publicize tab. In the body of the page, make it easy to subscribe to the section, check your website, click on the link, and use friendly graphics. You will be redirected to the Chicklet Chooser page. Leave the larger icon selected and scroll down to the bottom of the page. At the line, use it as a widget, and use the drop-down menu to choose Blogger. Press go.

You are redirected to the Add Page Element page at Blogger. Select the correct blog in the first line. Edit the title line to your preference; I usually leave it blank. Click on the edit content link. Go down to the last line of code. I change the copy from ‘Subscribe in a reader’ to ‘Get RSS Feed.’ This is optional and your choice. Press Add Widget. You are redirected to your blogger page, Add and Arrange Page Elements. View your blog. Return to the Add and Arrange Page Elements if you want to make changes.

Go to your Blogger dashboard; select the Settings tab at the blog for which you have burned the feed. On the Settings page, like Site Feed. At Site Feed, ensure the allowed blog feeds are set to full. This can be confirmed by returning to your feeds page. In the post feed URL redirect section, type your feed URL. If you hover over the feed icon to the left of the feed you are working on, the URL will be shown. When entering the URL, the total URL must be included. Additional options, bells, and whistles with Feedburner and related services exist. If you follow this burning procedure every time you create a blog, you will put your blog in a position to be active in Web 2.0.
