The Feedburner FeedSmith Plugin allows you to redirect all your blog feed to your FeedBurner Feed.

Blogs automatically have an RSS feed.   The rss feed is found by going to yourblog.edublogs.org/feed.  RSS feed readers like Feedly automatically detect your RSS feed from your blog URL so there is no need to know the feed URL or to set up an RSS feed for your blog.

Feedburner is a free web service which some bloggers and podcasters use to manage their RSS feeds and track their RSS and email subscribers.
