I would like to turn to the common knowledge with this question. Maybe there are known solutions that I could use before going on new rounds of effort and trial.
I am trying to beemind posting regularly to my personal blog at BlogSpot. So far, so good, the goal has been really successful in pushing me to write a little something every now and then, which is exactly what I wanted. Actually, I started to think and post ahead, and almost never skated the edge, which is why I never ran into the big issue with the goal setup until some five months into its existence.
Currently, I am using the URLminder feature to parse the feed created by FeedBurner. It was not until today (when I derailed despite making a post) that I realized that FeedBurner actually truncates the feed after 6 posts (currently based on some random parameter? always exactly 6?). So in fact my progress with the goal was about writing posts that are longer and longer, not the bare number of words per week as I intended. And I only realized this when the newest post turned out shorter than the 7th post down! (Yeah, I suspected that numbers felt off at some point but never imagined the scale)
So I am looking for an alternative setup. Any other feed-generating mechanism that is compatible with BlogSpot and is proven to work well with Beeminder? I am looking forward to any suggestions!
