I've just realised my positively ancient blog RSS feed is still generated via FeedBurner.

feeds.jamesmead.org/floehopper

What's the best approach for providing a feed these days...?

@floehopper Using a plain vanilla web feed without some third party part.

@floehopper I'm also using FeedBurner; I think in part because I wanted a bit of resilience if my site went down (you know how reliable Vanilla is!). I'll be curious to see if you find any alternatives...

@floehopper simply like that ? jamesmead.org/blog/feed
Feedburner made sense back in the days because it was able to supercharge the feed with some goodies, but in the end it was also a mess because nobody could redirect their old feed to their new feeds. I would not add any third party between me and my feed.
