Out with the old (RSS feed)

Just a bit of blog business here: many subscribers to the PainScience.com RSS feed are still using the feed address from my old domain, SaveYourself.ca. I moved all my content from SaveYourself.ca to PainScience.com in late 2014 (which was quite a debacle). More than three years later, about 70% of subscribers are still subscribed to the old URL, because there’s been no reason to update it: all requests for content from the old domain simply get forwarded to the new one.
But I’ll stop forwarding from the old feed soon. I will post a couple more warnings about it before pulling the trigger, and for a while I’ll keep topping up the old feed with pester posts about the new address. But it’s definitely doomed, so please do update your feed subscription URL. Thanks!
As long as I’m talking about RSS feeds, I’ll take this opportunity to plug FeedBin, a high quality RSS reader/service that I really like, Some people think traditional blogging and web content is dying, suffocated by Facebook and Twitter, but it’s still alive and well for me … in Feedbin! It’s $5/month, which I think is completely worthwhile. Feedbin: “a nice place to read on the web.”
