Technical Difficulties

Yes, once again, I'm having technical difficulties here at Footsteps of a Writer, and of course at my other blog.

Warning - Never, ever, paste an image onto your blogger blog.

It took me a good while to figure out what was causing my problem, but finally found the issue. On Thanksgiving, I pasted rather than uploaded the images on the blog(s). This caused the html coding to be extremely long, which caused my feed to be too big, which made bother feed burner and twitter to quit using the feed. Leave it to me to cause such a problem, right?

The worst part is I made many changes elsewhere before I discovered the true problem. So, now the feed to my blog is not the same. Anyone subscribed will have to re-subscribe - I believe. Now, I may be totally wrong in this, but if you continue to not receive updates and such, you will need to re-subscribe. I am so sorry for any inconvenience this may cause for anyone.

Thank you all for your support.

After posting this, I discovered another problem which may be of interest to anyone using Feedburner.com. Google bought them out, seems like a while back, but now I can't get to my account. So, I believe anyone signed up with continue to get their email updates.

I would appreciate it if you would delete that subscription and sign up through the new link on the blog. This gives me the ability to control the output on this end. Again, I do apologize for all the inconvenience.

Sorry to hear about your difficulties. That's awful.

Do you preview the blog post before you put it up? I always do that to see what it will look like. Maybe this will show you when the html goes wrong.

Cher, I didn't have to resubscribe. I received a message today giving me a list of your posts. Well, that was nice!

No inconvenience, silly. Just had me worried for a bit. Not now though. Glad you're back and running.

Aubrie. Yes I do preview, both the content in the compose section and the preview, sometimes I even look at the html. I'm mainly looking for misspelled words and such.

On Thanksgiving, well, on both blogs it was images and only a small amount of text. Needless to say, it didn't get much of a look over.

Not a biggie, I learn with each new disaster.

Sounds good. Maybe everything will continue smoothly now. Still have to get those images back up.

Thanks for the support.

Hello, Cher. Sorry to hear about all the problems you were having with your blog. I didn't have to re-subscribe, so no problem as far as that. Hopefully you won't have any more problems.
Have a wonderful day!

Susanne, I'm glad no one had to re-subscribe. You have a wonderful day too, and may we all have a problem free tomorrow. :)
