BlogLovin, And Blogs Publishing Feeds Through FeedBurner

We're seeing a few reports, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, about BlogLovin, and their inability to accept feeds from Blogger blogs.
My feed on Bloglovin is not updating correctly, so I emailed BlogLovin Support. They responded, and said it was because my RSS feed isn't working correctly.

When diagnosed, we frequently see a working posts feed, redirected through FeedBurner.

It appears that BlogLovin is not able to properly accept some (or all) FeedBurner redirected feeds. The most obvious solution here would be to setup BlogLovin properly, to use a non redirected feed, so they get the native Blogger posts feed.

Upon trying to test my diagnosis, using my test blog, it appears that adding a blog to BlogLovin requires publishing a new post, with their Follow button conspicuously located.
Paste this text into a new blog post:
<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/10757427/?claim=ge8y4cfhqfx">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

In some blogs it's necessary to put the code in the top of the blog post


It does not appear to be easily possible to specify the blog feed, in this case. It appears that BlogLovin extracts the blog feed, using the feed autodiscovery meta code, in the blog template.

It appears that any solution to the problem with BlogLovin vs FeedBurner redirected feeds will require involvement with BlogLovin Engineering.
  1. Convince BlogLovin Support to make their service accept FeedBurner feeds.
  2. Convince BlogLovin Support to make their service filter feed redirects.
  3. Discontinue FeedBurner from your feed redirect.
  4. Figure out how to specify a non redirected feed to BlogLovin.
I'm not hopeful that #4 has any future.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
