Feedburner Tips & Tricks: Feed Image Burner

by Megan

Welcome to The Nitty Gritty of Blogging: Feedburner, Part Two! This week I’m sharing a series of Feedburner tips and tricks that will help you to get the most out of this powerful little tool.

Feedburner Tips & Tricks: FeedFlareIf you missed my first series on Feedburner, you can find all of the posts on my Nitty Gritty of Blogging home page. These tips require you to already have your Feedburner account set up and active. If your account is not set up yet, hop over to my first post on how to set up Feedburner, and follow those steps. Then come back here. Are you back? Great. Moving on!

Here are the topics I’ve covered in this series so far:

Day One: Add easy share links for your feed/email subscribers with FeedFlare
Day Two: Add a title and description to your feed

Today I’m going to show you how to add an image to your feed!

Unless readers click through from their feed reader to your blog, they usually miss out on all of the beautiful design elements of your blog. But you can give them a little taste by uploading your logo, which will show on many different feed readers.

In your Feedburner account, click on the optimize tab, then click on “Feed Image Burner” in the left-hand column.

Next to “Image Source,” select “Specify custom image URL” from the drop-down menu. Then insert your logo’s URL in the next box.

Give the image a title, which will be the image’s “alt” tag, and which will also show in text form if the image cannot be displayed.

Then insert your blog url in the “Link” box, and the image will send the reader to your blog when clicked.

Click activate or save, and you’re good to go!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that
automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
your new updates.
