Today Google sent me a reminder email that they will be eliminating email subscriptions from Feedburner.
Once upon a time I used Feedburner to send email newsletters from spudart.org. This was before Google owned Feedburner.
Feedburner started in 2004. Google bought them in 2007. I must have started using Feedburner sometime between those years.
Google Reader started in 2005. Online expert, Sparxmind, noted to me, “I’m guessing they saw how many of the RSS subscriptions were using Feedburner, and thought they could take advantage of that somehow.” Interesting notion.
Of course, then in 2013, Google killed Google Reader. Quite amazing that Feedburner managed to operate under the radar for so many years after that.
I was wondering when Google would be eliminating Feedburner altogether.
Here’s a screenshot of reminder email from Google about Feedburner:
