Transfer RSS readers from Blogger blog to WP blog

  1. Just migrated from Blogger to WP. However, I'd like to know how to ensure that the people who subscribed to my RSS feeds on my Blogger blog will get updates from my WP blog?

    I'd also like to know how I can enable sharing of my blog posts on FB, Twitter, Digg, etc.?

    My blog's link is http://offcutter.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is offcutter.wordpress.com.

  2. 1. Nope, sorry, you're out of luck. If you transfer from blogger to wordpress, and your readers are using the feeds directly created from those platforms, you can't do it. Which is why I like to use services such as http://feedburner.com when I make a podcast feed. What you could try doing is posting the articles on blogger AND wordpress for a few times, on the blogger post saying that the posts will be ending soon, and if you want to keep subscribing, go the new feed. But that's about it.

    2. I'm not aware of any way to automatically share with digg, sorry. As for facebook and twitter:

  3. tbol3, actually there is a way! Just have to change the original URL in feedburner! :)

    But what I've read on Feedburner's site is that if you change the URL, you will have to let your readers know as they'll have to resubscribe. Is this true?

  5. @kcpennypinchinmama (sorry If i misspelled that, it's quite long): Nope, I've done it several times. Other than that they may loose a few entries if your new feed doesn't exactly match the old one, it's seamless (although it's still a good idea to say that you're moving).

    @thirucumaran: I knew that you could do that with feedburner. Although that's interesting. I didn't know that Blogger used feedburner as it's RSS generation, score one for blogger. (With that being said though, WP and WP.com is still much better, i.e., it actually looks like a professional website, not just a 'blogger blog').
