Feed Update, thanks to FeedBurner

I hate self-promotional posts, which is why I never announced my move from Geeks w/ Blogs to my personal server and why I never moved to MSDN blogs, but I feel like this one at least serves a purpose for other bloggers...

I'm doing something I've been meaning to do for a while: update the URL of my feeds. I use FeedBurner, which has been nice, but I've always hated using a FeedBurner URL. I thought about creating a reverse proxy to do it, but never felt the sheer need to spend the time to do that. Luckily, FeedBurner has done the work for me. I'm not sure if this is a new service or not, but I have to thank Scott Watermasysk Syndicated feed for pointing me to FeedBurner MyBrand. This feature allows you to specify a custom domain for your feeds. While not the complete flexibility I'd like, it at least gives me the ability to maintain a controlled domain name in case I ever decide to self-host my feed.

With this, the following are my new feed URLs:

I'm probably going to be scrapping my feedback and ratings blogs. Feedback is too tedious because I have too many ideas and ratings gets annoying because I put everything in Netflix and sometimes IMDB. I'm looking for a good platform to support this type of blog, but haven't found one, yet. I'll probably just create some mashup using Netflix's feed.
