Can I totally replace my blog's default RSS feed URL with a new URL from Google Feedburner? I want visitors to only subscribe to my new Feedburner RSS address.

Hi James ,
YES you can.
First , get your blog's URL.
For an example ,
my blog is www.techrome.com/mobile.php

then , log into Feedburner and put the URL in Claim Feed input box. Remember to remove .php before submit.
Ie. Www.techrome.com/mobile

then , submit , optimize , analyse and make your feed.

Now, go to 'My Account' > MyBrand.

Then , open your DNS manager in a new Tab.(either Yola , godaddy or any)
create a new CNAME record
enter a subdomain that you wish to use for feeds. (mine is 'feed' . Just type the feed , and not the full subdomain.)
enter the value specified in FeedBurner which is highlighted in yellow , like cvx8eo.Feedproxy.Ghs.Google.Com

type that value in your dns management window and hit submit.

Go to Feedburner tab.
Enter the full feed subdomain (feed.techrome.com ) and submit.
This will replace your feeds' "feeds.feedburner.com" phase and will give you a feed in your domain. (check - feed.techrome.com/techrome/mobile )

Hi James,

If you already have a URL from Feedburner, you can delete the default RSS widget and then add yours as a link on text or an image - I think that will work.

Okay, thanks folks. For now I have just deleted the default RSS widget and linked to Feedburner's feed.The first answer from Ayesh was interesting - I wasn't aware you could do that. Thanks again for the help.
