Over the past couple days, I have been looking at some blog/podcast feed tools like Technorati, Blogdex, Blogdigger, and FeedBurner. Feedburner has some really cool tools for tweaking out your blog or podcast feed. For instance, if you subscribed to our audio blog feed directly from Blogger, you would not be able to receive the feed as a podcast. However, I added the feed to FeedBurner which, among other cool things, converts the feed to RSS 2.0 and changes links to audio files in each audioblog entry to an RSS enclosure. That means you can now receive our audioblog with your favorite “podcatcher”! (podcast subscription URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/hearspeak)
FeedBurner also adds some other really cool features. Among others, you can get subscriber metrics, re-format your feed, and ping back feed aggregators like those mentioned above. Very cool stuff.
