How to Redirect an Old Feedburner Feed to a New Feed?

Lately I changed my blog title, but then my Feedburner feed name doesn't reflect the new blog title name. Instead of feeds.feedburner.com/LearningMyFirstOnlineBusiness I wanted to change it to be feeds.feedburner.com/MeaningfulBlog. How can I change it without losing my existing feed?

There are three steps that I need to accomplish this task:

  1. First I need to burn a new Feedburner feed using my original blog feed as my source. I name it MeaningfulBlog

  2. Second I need to update the source of my old Feedburner feed (used to be my original blog feed) to be feeds.feedburner.com/MeaningfulBlog (my new feed). Make sure you save the change. 

  3. Third I need to go back to my old Feedburner feed, click on "Delete Feed..." It says
    You are about to permanently delete the feed: Learning My First Online Business. If you complete this action, your feed and ALL associated statistical history and service benefits will be deleted. You have the option for this feed address to permanently redirect to the currently configured source feed.
    Make sure you tick the box next to "With permanent redirection". After that hit Delete Feed button.
So now my old feed, feeds.feedburner.com/LearningMyFirstOnlineBusiness, is permanently redirected to my new feed, feeds.feedburner.com/MeaningfulBlog. I checked it out and it works.
