Announcement: New Email Subscription Service

Recently Google has changed its Feedburner services and eliminated email subscriptions as one of the Feedburner offerings.  Because of this change, I have moved the email subscriptions (though not the RSS) database over to MailChimp.  Those of you that already have subscribed via email in the old system should continue to get updates with each new post here at Construction Law Musings.  If you are not receiving these updates, whether because of an email change or “operator error” on my part, ple...

subscribe-by-email is going away. bloggers, what are you going to use instead?

Blogger will soon stop supporting the function that allows readers to subscribe to blogs via email. This is occurring because Google is killing Feedburner. Like the deceased Google Reader, Feedburner is very popular, used by millions, but Google has not been updating it, and is now officially killing it.There has been some concern that Google might kill Blogger, but over the past several years, they have been answering Blogger-related questions and upgrading some Blogger features. I am still w...

"FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner) is going away."

So I am told by Blogger, "because your blog uses the FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner)."The notice continues: "Recently, the Feedburner team released a system update announcement , that the email subscription service will be discontinued in July 2021. After July 2021, your feed will still continue to work, but the automated emails to your subscribers will no longer be supported. If you’d like to continue sending emails, you can download your subscriber contacts. Learn how."Ugh! I don't know if I...

Google’s FeedBurner moves to a new infrastructure but loses its email subscription service

Google today announced that it is moving FeedBurner to a new infrastructure but also deprecating its email subscription service. If you’re an internet user of a certain age, chances are you used Google’s FeedBurner to manage the RSS feeds of your personal blogs and early podcasts at some point. During the Web 2.0 era, it was the de facto standard for feed management and analytics, after all. Founded in 2004, with Dick Costolo as one of its co-founders (before he became Twitter’s CEO in 2010), it...

The Long Arc of A CEO / Investor Friendship

Last week, Return Path announced it was being acquired by Validity My fellow board member Fred Wilson wrote a great history titled The Long Game and Matt Blumberg wrote a beautiful tribute titled OnlyOnce, Part XX. I’ve been involved in Return Path as an investor since 2001 when Return Path and Veripost merged as part of a funding done by Sutter Hill (Greg Sands), Flatiron Partners (Fred Wilson), and Mobius Venture Capital (me). I wrote the very long story in a post titled Return Path Acq...

RSS: The Persistent Protocol

One of our themes is Protocol. We’ve been investing in companies built around technology protocols since 1994. One of my first investments, when I moved to Boulder in 1995, was in a company called Email Publishing, which was the very first email service provider. SMTP has been very good to me. We made some of the early investments in companies built around RSS, including FeedBurner and NewsGator. RSS is a brilliant, and very durable, protocol. The original creators of the protocol had great visi...

Happy GDPR Day

The world and my e mail inbox has been in a flat spin about GDPR in recent weeks, and I expect yours might have been the same. This, for those who haven’t noticed, is all about new EU legislation surrounding data protection. I have been doing my research to be sure that dovegreyreader scribbles is compliant in any way it needs to be, so firstly please award me a medal for ploughing through reams of irrelevant information, scaring myself half to death at the thought of a massive fine, even think...

Introducing the Collaborative Piano Blog Newsletter

Photo by Chuck Speed One of the strengths of the Collaborative Piano Blog is that it has been able to reach people all over the world via not only the website but with RSS, Twitter, Facebook, and mail subscriptions.  Many of you are taking some time off from social media at the same time that traditional blogging is starting to take off again. As I get back into a more intense blogging schedule over the next few months, you might not see every single article on the Facebook page - esp...

Blogging Nostalgia and my 30 day Challenge

I started blogging in December 2005. The urge came from a childlike curiosity to learn about the new phenomenon (back then). I still remember the excitement of creating my page on Blogger, acquired by Google in 2003. My first blog used to be Blogger in 2005 (courtesy of Internet Time Machine)  In the beginning blogging was all about self expression. The list of top blogs in 2005 by Time Magazine is a good snapshot: the hardcore tech blogs were LifeHacker and BoingBoing ...

Join My Chorus Marathon Team

I’m going to run my next marathon in October. I haven’t chosen it yet, but I’m getting close to deciding which one I want to do. And – I’m looking for some help on my training. Early this year, we invested in Dick Costolo’s new company, Chorus. Some of you know Dick from Twitter, where he was CEO for four years. But you may not remember that before he was at Twitter, he was at Google, and before that, he was the CEO / co-founder of Feedburner, where we were one of the investors and I was on the ...

In praise of Flickr

Matt Haughey comes not to bury Flickr, but to praise it. Flickr represents one of the very best of things in the history of the internet. It was the first popular way to share photos in a social way instead of photos lingering in private accounts online and in the real world in shoeboxes under beds. It brought millions together and helped kick off first the digital SLR revolution, then it was eclipsed by the mobile photography revolution. Flickr—despite being a big corporate entity—embraced o...

WordPress Customization: 101 Things To Do After Installing WordPress [DIY]

You can’t start a WordPress blog in 10 minutes. And you can’t start one in 10 hours either. You know why? Because it takes countless hours to customize WordPress and get things done and make things look like the way you want (unless you are a WordPress geek). And hey, I didn’t even count the time required to actually create content. That’s the real purpose of a blog, right? First things first. I’m going to assume that you have already purchased a domain name, web hosting plan, and have installe...

Change is an Opportunity

  Nearly three thousand people subscribe to Conversation Agent by daily email. If that's you, thank you for choosing that option. The current format was offered a while back by FeedBurner and is now unsupported by Google. So while it's not going away, the formatting is not ideal for readability. I don't like not having control, it doesn't allow me to serve you better. Because I also read a lot of what's important by email, I understand the importance of a good layout. So I'm planning more opt...

November’s Desktop Calendar Subscriber News!

N ovember’s calendar is early because I managed to miss October. {insert sad face emoji} BUT, I’ve added iPhone and iPad options for the first time!

Thanks, Google, For Fucking Over A Bunch Of Media Websites (techdirt)

We've discussed a few times in the past how Google's seemingly arbitrary policies are a potential problem for various media companies that often rely on the company. We've detailed ridiculous warnings we've received because our news stories covered topics that Google deemed offensive, because apparently no one at Google can distinguish between reporting on something offensive and just posting something offensive. We've also discussed how Google tends to present itself as a great white monolith t...

Moving Email Subscriptions to Mailchimp

Over the past few weeks, traffic has been slowly declining and I’ve noticed a slight decrease in comments. I believe I finally realized the issue — emails for new posts stopped going out. One of my (many) email addresses is subscribed, and upon publishing several posts the other day and not seeing an email from Feedburner the next morning like usual — I dug into the issue and realized the last email I received was from the post on June 24th. Since then, I don’t believe anyone has been getting an...
