Numerous Options with Feedburner

You can also have FeedBurner automatically ping search engine’s when you make changes to your site. A ping is an invitation that says to search engine’s that they should come look at your new content. I instead use WordPress’s built in ping system.

You can also include images, ads, and numerous other things in your feeds. I leave it to you to decide if that is something your viewers may be interested in? I choose to keep the feed as simple as possible, but everyone is different.
