Starting today, I will be moving my blog. This may be a little confusing, so bear with me. To be clear, http://devkeydet.com (which redirects to http://devkeydet.spaces.live.com) will still be my official browser based web presence. I will still use Windows Live Spaces for everything but blogging. This means that any URLs I have sent/published on http://devkeydet.spaces.live.com will continue to work. I will turn off syndication of my old blog (http://devkeydet.spaces.live.com/blog/) one week from today. All new blog posts after this one will be syndicated via http://feeds.feedburner.com/devkeydet. If you want to continue to get my posts in your RSS reader, please subscribe to this feed as soon as possible.
The reason I am doing this is because I need richer metrics about who is viewing my blog. Windows Live Spaces only gives you Total page views, Page views today, Page views this week, and Page views within the last hour. Many of my fellow Microsoft blogger’s get much richer information through FeedBurner and our new analytics tool code named Gatineau. I am not aware of any way to get either of these working with the Spaces blogging engine. I know it is a web "no-no" to change your blog. I really don’t want to put people through the pain of having to subscribe to a new feed, but I need better metrics about my blog. I sincerely apologize for the switcheroo.
If you are reading this from http://blogs.msdn.com/publicsector, then you don’t have to change anything. You are covered because my personal blog is "aggregated" to http://blogs.msdn.com/publicsector.
