Now, I've never done this on any of the many Wordpress sites I've built, but EVERYONE seems to say to do this, but they aren't clear as to "why" other than "feedburner gives you more features".
Personally, I don't see any feature of feedburner that you can't get out of Wordpress itself with plugins. It seems that if you know how to do this (extend Wordpress with plugins) there's no compelling reason to not go with your own domain feed urls, right?
I know that for some folks, the big appeal is that people can subscribe to email updates of your feed, but I'm already using aweber, so I don't really need that functionality either.
Add to that, when you search around to try and answer this question online for yourself - "why feedburner?" - it seems that since Google bought them, the stats people purportedly use it for are often wrong, or fluctuate, or break altogether.
Anyone have a compelling reason to use feedburner based on actual experience and/or understanding of some feature or benefit I'm just not aware of?
Thanks in advance for answers!
