  8. 8. Tips Make a drawing of the feed flow before starting (Not kidding here. Really, just do it). When your blog URL changes, the Feed URL will probably change too. So you will lose all your subscribers. Use a system (Yahoo Pipes or preferably Feedburner) as a 'man-in-the-middle'. This has the advantage that you can change the input feed, without changing the output feed, hence keeping all your followers. Only use Feedburner for 'public' feeds, no need to use it for internal use
