Burn, Baby, Burn

FeedBurner is a site that manages RSS feeds, and I have just signed up because I want to be able to analyze my traffic better by integrating feed statistics into BlogBeat. I'll have to see how it works out using FeedBurner's free features, but I think this is a testament to how useful BlogBeat has been. It's a great service that I am happy that I paid for, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants first-class blog analytics.

So I have updated the look of my site a bit and added and digg integration as well as a handy link to my new feed in the upper-righthand corner, taking advantage of some of the services you can get by integrating with FeedBurner. I've always tried to keep the site relatively clean and simple, but I couldn't resist (feed junkie that I am) so let me know if you think it's just too much clutter.

And if you're not familiar with these aggregation sites, you will be. There's an RSS explosion happening out there (thanks to Lifehacker for the link). Download yourself an aggregator (I use RSS Bandit, but that's mainly because it's open source and written in C#) and drink the sweet nectar that is web syndication.

And if you're reading this via an RSS reader already, please update your feed URL to reflect my new feed. Not my old feed. My new feed. Thank you.

I enjoyed reading your blog. Got some good laughs from some of your posts;) I love finding others who also enjoy as much as I do. Thanks for using my Digg feedflare service and let me know if you have any problems or suggestions. I noticed that the "Digg This!" link wasn't appearing on all of your posts. Probably due to Digg's search page not responding in time as I've seen happen before. I'll have to see if I can somehow remedy that.

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
