How to podcast feeds using FeedBurner

Hey Guys,

Now I have my very own podcast powered by FeedBurner! You can also burn feeds of your blog or for your website! Process is very simple...

1) Just go to http://feedburner.google.com/
2) Sign in with your google account and then enter your blog URL at "Burn a feed right this instant"
3) Make sure you have checked I am a podcaster! option and then hit Next.
4) Next step is 'Identify Feed Source', just keep the selected option and hit Next.
5) Now final step is 'Welcome! Let us burn a feed for you'. Now after this step it will show you your FeedBurner URL. Just save that URL and show it on your blog.

If you are using FeedBurner then people can subscribe to your feeds.
Other blogs or websites can easily import your posts.
The very important use of FeedBurner is analyze Feeds! You can simply track your feeds. Traffic to your feeds using its tracker. If you are logged in then just visist the admin dashboard.
FeedBurner was acquired by Google Inc. on June 2007. Now it is free of cost. :) 
FeedBurner is also available in plain XML format. e.g. My blog feeds in XML

Now here, you can do one trick ;) If you are using Firefox (greatest browser ever made) then just visit your XML FeedBurner URL. At the top you will see a dropdown and Subscribe Now button.
Here, just select Live Bookmarks option from dropdown! and hit Subscribe Now button. Now you will see subscribe bookmark popup. Just select your bookmark folder and save it.
Now you will get to see feeds directly in your Firefox's bookmarks menu bar. :) Simply Awesome!

E.g.


So here is my blog's FeedBurner URL :) http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/WrQrB
Now you can subscribe to my feeds!

Thanks for reading,
