Listen TODAY 11am EDT: FeedBurner, FeedBlitz and Platforms

This morning at 11 am EDT I’m going to be on the Tonya Hall Radio show, streamed online at and available in Colorado Springs live on KRCN. I’ll be talking platforms and the risks therein, a topic that’s front of mind not only because of Google’s recent actions with FeedBurner, but also because of Twitter’s API changes announced last week which affect how third parties can use their platform in the future.

So tune in! 11 am eastern at

Meet Phil Hollows

Phil Hollows is the founder and CEO of FeedBlitz, the email marketing and social media automation service, and premium FeedBurner alternative. After graduating from Oxford University in 1987, Phil built on his high tech, consulting, and marketing leadership experience, and by 2005 the seeds of FeedBlitz were germinating. Private equity investment followed shortly thereafter, and the rest - as they say - is history. He also authored "List Building for Bloggers" {}, outlining proven email strategies to build your audience, increase engagement, and grow your income. Pre-FeedBlitz, Phil was vice president of product marketing for enterprise network security management company OpenService (now LogMatrix), and vice president of technology at the web testing company RadView Software.
