It was the best of feeds; it was the worst of feeds … At times they worked; at times they didn’t work.
But at least they were together, two feeds on a blog, until I discovered I could kill one off. It would be painless. Just a quick click and then delete. There would be no remains to dispose of, no DNA to tie me to the crime scene.
But murdering a feed should not to be taken lightly. It requires some thought. There’s family to consider, readers who may drift away after I pull the plug, mourn its loss by hugging their own feeds.
Please always remember it even though it was meant to be temporary – just a Feedburner fling. We only spent two years together on WordPress. I will think of it every time I visit the dashboard, but I won’t dwell on the loss.
I have another feed who has been my companion for many years … since we first met on Blogger – our impetuous younger days when I rarely had tech problems.
Big blogs cause big blog problems.
Life is more difficult because of it, and because of it, a difficult decision must be made.
Do I really want to kill the feed? The two feeds and I have been family, for a while anyway.
Do I really want to unplug one of the lifelines to my blog?
Dunno, dunno, dunno, dunno!
It’s hard to cut your losses, but sometimes it’s the only way to move on. *sigh* R.I.P. Feed 2. Please light a candle in its memory every time you turn your computer on.
If you subscribed to Think Spin on WordPress, please subscribe again. I’d hate to lose you. You are the engine that drives this blog.
Thank you for sticking by me all these years. I hope Charles Dickens’ ghost doesn’t haunt me. He was a scary looking dude.
P.S. – I’ll keep the feed on life support for a while longer to give you a cushion of time to change it. Thanks again!!!!
