I check my site stats from time to time, but I always wonder how much of my traffic comes from RSS feeds, which are difficult to track. So just today I decided to start using Feedburner, which is a nifty service that helps track RSS readership and promote your feeds. I've switched the links on the blog to the new Feedburner feed, but those of you who read through the normal channels won't be affected. If you want to switch, I encourage it. I know there is a way to do painless redirects to the new feed, but it involves some htaccess magic, which is particularly tough if you're already using htaccess to manage semantically meaningful permalinks, as I am. Maybe someday I'll be bold enough to try that! In the meantime, check out Feedburner.
