A Note to RSS Feed and Email Subscribers

This is a special note to those who read "A Dash" via email or by following our RSS feed.

I set this up a long time ago, and it worked very well.  As my readers know, I try to make information available through various sources.   I know that I have a lot of readers via these sources, but it is not something that I monitor very closely.

Perhaps that was a mistake.  Some time ago (measured in years according to my tech gurus) Google bought out Feedburner, the basis for our RSS and email.  They suggested that you should "claim your feed" by linking it with to your Google account.

My problem is that my Google account is a personal email, not linked to my professional activities.  I did not want to make this connection.  This caused a delay.  At this point, there is no help from Google and my team is wasting valuable time on this problem.

Implications

In the absence of some surprise help from Google, our plan is to create a new feed from a new Google account. This means that subscribers must adopt the new feed if they want continued service. We obviously do not want to lose any long-time friends, but we need to clean this up. 

To sign up for the new feed, please visit dashofinsight.com directly. You will find the new widgets for RSS and email sign up in between the search bar and the "Categories" section on the left sidebar.  To verify, the correct url for the new feed should be <http://feeds.feedburner.com/typepad/QUWJ>. We will run the two feeds at the same time until August 8th, at which point we will switch to the new feed exclusively. Please make the transition to the new feed as soon as possible.

I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for reading!

    Inappropriate apology. High quality analysis and a sober voice compared to a few clicks? So imbalanced that refuse proper grammar.

    Jeff,
    I may be an isolated incident, but for me FeedDemon is not recognizing the new feed.

    My team has managed to replicate your problem and they are hashing it out with the Feed Demon tech support. Thanks for bringing it to my attention and I apologize for the inconvenience.
