I'm a bit confused about Feedburner and I wonder if anyone can help me. I used to send out my blog's RSS feeds using Feedburner but Google bought it and closed it and Google Reader down sometime last year. I left my Feederburner subscription up because I didn't get any complaints from anyone saying it wasn't working. There is a facility in Feedburner to move the feeds and I can't remember now if I did that or not. Anyhow, the stats on Feedburner are still current so I'm thinking it's still working. Am I right?
Last week I had an enquiry asking how to sign up for email RSS feeds and that got me thinking about all this. I'd like to add that facility back to my blog but can't work out how to do it now. Can you point me in the right direction?
I used to use Google reader to read the blogs I read on a regular basis. I searched for a new reader for a while and tried a couple but settled on Feedly. Feedly is easy to use, it's well designed and it's free. You can also use different categories for your saved blogs to organise it to your liking. I've added the Feedly button to my side bar and I would love you to follow me there.
Many of you may have seen Roman, Jana and baby Lada on Gardening Australia last year. They're an innovative and charming couple who live in Brisbane and who are living sustainably in a rental property in the suburbs. They are growing vegetables in self-made wicking beds, harvesting water and living a simple life. They're generously sharing their knowledge with the local and have starting doing workshops. Like me, they're hoping to inspire many more people to live this way. Roman and Jana have just started a website, do yourself a favour and check it out - SpurTopia. There are a lot of photos and interesting information there. It will be interesting to watch it develop.
Finally, Megan from Odgers and McClelland Exchange Store sent an email to let us know she now has the wonderful Falconware in a set of enamel prep bowls and colander as well as enamel milkshake beakers. It's a beautiful store that I enjoy looking at.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Hanno is out in the garden working on the chicken house and I'm about to serve lunch then plant up more seeds.
