For awhile now, we’ve been looking to move away from feedburner.  With google reader now defunct, I think it’s just a matter of time before Feedburner leaves us as well. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather deal with migrating to another platform now.

I’ve searched, and hunted down some alternatives but they either offered too much (FeedBlitz – not really bad at all, but more newsletter focused) or their entire site was too confusing (FeedCat) or I couldn’t get my feed to setup (Feedity).  The last two listed, caused me frustration, which in turn caused me to leave and look for better. This is a perfect example of having a website that is frustration and stress free for your potential customer…but that’s a different blog post. 😉

I wanted something simple, super easy to setup and with features similar to Feedburner.  This is not a long list of unachievable requirements.

Now, enter, FeedPress.

  • Simple to setup – check
  • Easy to use – check
  • Nice feed layout – check
  • Responsive layout – Bonus check!
  • Similar featured to feedburn (multiple feeds, analytics, subscriber counts) – check, check, checkity check
  • Free or pretty cheap – check

Their free version has enough features that I don’t feel like I’m really missing out on anything. The feed refresh rate is once every hour, while the premium version is every 20 minutes. I can deal with an hour. It’s not like I’m offering breaking news here.  For those that need the faster refresh, or click tracking, the premium version is only $3 per month, or $30 for a year. That’s beyond reasonable – it’s almost too good to be true.

Not sure what to do to make the switch? They offer an easy to follow migration tutorial as well.  Plus you can always contact us if you need assistance.

You’ll see in the top of our sidebar, the link to our new feed brought to you by, FeedPress. Check it out.
