Sounds obvious right? It did to me too, but I've realized over the past few days that you should make sure you are linking directly to a post, and not to the redirect URL. So what, exactly, am I talking about? Feedburner. I'm sure there are others, but F… more »

But I wouldn't recommend actually tasting me! Now, once you get your mind back out of the gutter, I'm talking about del.icio.us, and, even though I've used it for quite a while, just recently have I started to see the real value in it. I guess you have t… more »
