Feed your blog and generate money...

Feeds. What are feeds? According to FeedBurner,

A feed is the format that allows your content to be delivered (and subscribed to) on the Web.
FeedBurner is one of the world's largest feed provider. Generally, feeds are of two formats: RSS and Atom. As far as I can tell, feeds are generated automatically and can be read by people without coming to your blog using feed readers. If you want to know more about feeds you can go here. By the way, it is also called syndication. Check out my feed on the left sidebar. Its the orange, square little button. Yup, that's it.

Why feeds? Well, feeds will get you a lot of extra readers. And we all know what that means. More readers, more traffic, more revenue. Moreover I think there are ad services for feeds including adsense. I will be checking that out soon.

To get yourself a feed, I suggest you go to FeedBurner. It's easy to set up. They have a very well-explained set of options. Just go to the homepage, enter your blog's url and create an account. There is more but that part is better left explained by FeedBurner them selves. They'll give you a shiny new button to put on your site and even give you a chicklet for displaying how many readers you have. Like the little black button I have on the left sidebar below the FeedBurner button. Until next time, happy blogging...
