A few kind readers contacted me recently to tell me they were worried that something had happened to the RSS feed for this blog. It turns out that they had reason to be concerned. Something was wrong and we were having trouble diagnosing the problem. We tried one approach after another, but were unable to find an obvious solution. This is the point at which even a calm technologist thinks seriously about hitting the monitor with a heavy object!
The good news is that after much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair, we think it is fixed now. That said, I’d be grateful if you could let me know if you are a subscriber and are not receiving my posts. In the meantime, I’m going to resume blogging in the hope that everything is working with the RSS feed.
In my early days as a blogger I assumed that my blog offerings, once published, dropped into some deep dark hole, never to see daylight again. When I received my first blog comment, I was delighted to discover that somebody actually was reading my post. Since that time lots of somebodies have been kind enough to provide comments on my blog, as well as reactions via Twitter and Google Plus. This in turn has triggered exactly the kind of conversation I hoped would emerge.
Thanks for bearing with me through this technological bump in the road. I’ll continue to work to upgrade things on my end so that problems of this sort are minimized going forward.
