Site Feed To Feed Your Friend's Blogroll

Remember my post about "could not detect feed, add this url anyway?"? Well it seems that it does not work always. I still have two or three friends that I could not have a feed. Not that I am hungry for feeds but I feel ashamed not being able to see their updates. I added them to my blogroll and to me it is my obligation to at least check out their newest post that has been feed to me. So when I can't get a feed on some of my bloggers friends, I applied this. And when it does not work, I spend a week or two looking for the answer. Finally it is here, and I hope this is really it is.

It is not my fault (or yours) but rather your friends LOL (unintentionally of course). They forgot to change their site feed. And how do you change your site feed? Simple as this:

First go to your dashboard and click on the setting of the blog that you want to change the site feed.

Then click on the site feed tab (next to archiving tab). Click on the advance setting.

Allow Blog Feed? Select FULL

Save Settings and tell me if it works.

Creating A Feed Through FeedBurner

I just discovered the reason why my personal blog was rejected to another paying site I am trying to join. Oh well it seems that even though I have 10K back links for my blog, I have no subscriber at all. I did not know that subscribers is the next big thing to PR, Alexa and the likes. So to make this entry simpler, here is how you can increase your subscriber.

First of course you need to create a feed of your blog. I used FeedBurner and do this simple steps:

Burn a feed right this instant. Type your blog or feed address here: this is the box where I wrote my

Identify Feed Source
Choose whatever you want... (atom feed or RSS feed)

Welcome! Let us burn a feed for you.

Feed Title: give a name of your feed..
Feed Address: on the box provided you can change it to whatever name that suits you..

The Feed Address that appears on the next step is your feed.. Log on to your blogger account and go to your settings, then go to site feed. On the box provided beside this phrase: Post Feed Redirect URL type in your Feed Address.

Your almost ready to go.. Now to increase your subscribers you just have to click on the Publicize tab of your FeedBurner dashboard then click on the email subscriptions, then activate it. You will be given a code and add it to an html widget.
