Dear Winaero readers, I would like to collect some feedback from our existing RSS and email subscribers to learn how we should proceed. As you may already know, Google's FeedBurner service, which we use to deliver our post updates and emails, is going into maintenance mode in July 2021, and won't deliver emails any longer.
In fact, FeedBurner is a dead man walking for a long time. It doesn't receive updates, has plenty of broken links inside its UI, and looks ancient and forgotten.
Additionally, it also has some delivery issues. I've observed that some of the posts appear in its RSS feed with a delay of several hours. On the other hand, the mail delivery is reliable. It wasn't a serious issue before we started writing news here. Now I would like to reach out to our readers ASAP. The delay annoys me (and most likely you too).
Should we even have these options here?
In fact, RSS subscribers on Winaero are a very small community. In general, RSS is not popular these days. Most users are happy with following websites on social media channels such as Twitter and others. Following this trend, Winaero has its presence on Twitter and Telegram.
So, I would like to hear from you, do you really need RSS and email update delivery? Maybe it is a good idea to disconnect FeedBurner for good and go without any replacement?
Let's make this decision together.
If you think that an email subscription is a must-have, and know of a good alternative to FeedBurner, please suggest it here. In any case, please share your thoughts in the comments.
