A few months ago, we introduced the ability for you to link up your Dropbox account to FeedPress so you can receive a text file summary of your feed subscribers. We also introduced the ability to link your Mailchimp account to FeedPress, so that as your needs grew, you could seamlessly switch over and let it manage your newsletter.
Ever since Google Reader’s demise last year, a slew of new RSS reader services have been come to market, whilst older more established products like NetNewsWire have been given new life. The vast array of choice in services consumers can choose from is impressive. Many of these have slightly different approaches to how one consumes news, such as Feedly and Digg, which break away from the older approach of just subscribing to and displaying a list of feeds — not unlike treating RSS like email.
When we initially built the newsletter feature for FeedPress, we intended it to be a simple companion for those wanting a simple way to deliver RSS feed updates via email.
Today we are announcing a step-by-step video tutorial on how to move your feed (properly) from FeedBurner to FeedPress. We realize that the process isn’t overtly obvious or easy on the FeedBurner end, so we hope this little visual walkthrough will make the transition smoother for you.
Often times we build features into FeedPress that we, as users of the app, feel we want to use ourselves. In fact, one of our fundamental beliefs is that we only build things that are truly great and useful to people, who like us, have similar needs.
