Change of feed URL

FeedBurner offers a rather nice free service, where they consume your XML feed, and then convert that feed into a number of different formats as required. So at the moment, as I use Blogger.com, my feed format options start and stop with Atom, but using FeedBurner I can hand out a new URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/jurasource, and the format of the feed is dependant on what is reading it.

What does that mean? Well for one, if a newsreader identifies itself as say FeedDemon/1.0, FeedBurner knows that that reader doesn't support Atom, so it returns an RSS feed instead, pretty cool eh?

Also, FeedBurner will track accesses, and click throughs, giving some extra traffic reporting, which is nice

Formats supported are: RSS 0.90, 0.91, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94, 1.0, 2.0, and Atom.
