I’ve been using Feedbin since Google Reader closed, and love it.
So many RSS-following people makes me wonder what effect this has on TOP’s advertising income. Anyone reading the RSS version isn’t going to create any page and advertising impressions, and there’s zero chance of them clicking an ad. I always click through to the site to read TOP, but I must admit this is partly because Typepad-hosted sites seem to be the one thing Feedbin can’t handle well.
Once you’re back up and running, and thinking about the new site again, it might be worth considering having ads at the end of each item in the RSS feed, or inserting occasional “RSS feed sponsored by…” posts?
