An addition to my list of Google alternatives: FeedPress instead of FeedBurner. A very nice service, unobtrusive, and with a plugin for WordPress, too!

And you know what makes them most likeable? This, from their About Us page: “While we hope to make nice money out of FeedPress, we don’t depend on this service to feed our cats so we won’t kill it just because it didn’t grew fast enough. We want to make a nice service for nice users.” (bold emphasis added by me) – did you read that, Google?
