For most of you, that means virtually nothing changes. At worst, you may see the last 10-20 entries appear as "new" or "changed" in whatever RSS reader you use. And for most of you that's either Google Reader or Bloglines (based on the stats I have already).
If you're interested in the details, the relevant section of my Apache's httpd.conf file now looks like this:
## Blog stuff Redirect permanent /backend.php http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/rss2.xml ## Added on 06-19-2006 Redirect permanent /blog/atom.xml http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/rss2.xml ## Added on 06-21-2006 Redirect permanent /blog/index.xml http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/rss2.xml ## Added on 03-17-2008 Redirect temp /blog/rss2.xml http://feeds.zawodny.com/jzawodn/rss2
That means anyone fetching my rss2.xml file will now receive a temporary (HTTP 302) redirect to feeds.zawodny.com which is, in turn, a CNAME to feeds.feedburner.com.
I implemented it this way so that i can turn if off at some point (by removing the redirect) and not "lose" subscribers. Unless, of course, some folks subscribe directly to the FeedBurner hosted copy.
In any case, I'm curious to see what the FeedBurner stats look like. I'm sure there are a few settings I need to tweak. I've probably missed a few. So don't get all paranoid about click tracking and whatnot. My goal is to do little of that.
