Reader updates

FREAK OUT mode in effect. My blog feed somehow got corrupted or disappeared on me. As a result, my feed has not been updating in over a week and I've lost all of my subscribers. I now have a new feed. See that little widget in my left sidebar? It used to say something like 697 subscribers. Now? ZERO. ZERO. I'm crying. I'm devastated. So, please, re-subscribe. I miss your visits and your comments and I'm going through withdrawals. Please?
(WORDFUL WEDNESDAY below.)

This has something to do with the feed. I stopped receiving my own blog (I subscribe to mine so I can make sure people are getting it).

This is what I did: There's a "show details" button on the top right of the blog's page on Reader. I clicked that and then clicked on the "Feed URL". Mine asked if I wanted to subscribe (or something along those lines). I clicked it (or yes or whatever) and problem was solved.

Not sure why this was changed in the first place. But it seems to work now. I hope that is of some help!

I'm not sure how to help, but I hope you can fix it soon!

confused homemaker said...

hope it gets fixed for you, that would SUCK big time to lose. I have had people disappear from my Google reader (I did not unsubscribe or unfollow) and then boom they are back. Hope it's something like that.

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

I subscribed.

T Rex Mom said...

I've totally be wondering where you were. So glad to catch up and see that you are still out there.

That wedgie-man sounds like something!

Mandy said...

I have been wondering where you are as well. Lo and behold, there are 8 of your posts waiting for me in my reader. So I am still subscribed. I bet your numbers will reappear just as your feed did. :)

mannequin said...

Yea, I had to manually make the trek over here to see what was going on.
I figured it was mine as everything is normally my fault. :)
I redid subscribe. They'll be back. How could they not?

parentingBYdummies said...

That sucks... but we're together again (it's updating on my blog) so that should make you happier:)

Amy said...

That is not good. I hope you are having a great day though.

kisatrtle said...

I thought it was odd that your feed stayed at the bottom of my blog roll, but I thought you were on vacation.

HOpe you get it all straightened out again.

scrappysue said...

i was wondering why you were 'lurking' at the bottom of my blogroll when i knew you'd updated! i didn't realise you could find out how many ppl got your feed - how'd u get that widget?

it's on your left side bar btw - you really ARE distraught angie!

we will love ya tho!

Jen said...

Yeah I am glad it is back for me. I now see everything. I am so sorry that this happened. I thought that my feed was broken over the weekend and I was a sobbing mess. I know that they will come back and in bigger numbers.

Jen said...

Oh and one more thing, you may no this but when I started with feedburner it took 24 for me to get a correct number so I bet by tomorrow all will be well with the world.

Nicole O'Dell said...

Oh man, what a bummer, Angie. I hope everyone's right and you get your actual feed count restored.

Kat said...

I was just checking my reader...and it says you have 8 new posts! So they are all there. I don't think I need to resubscribe. But it had a hiccup. And I got a weeks worth all at once! Ugh!

Carissa(GoodnCrazy) said...

You know what?? I'm thinking I want to do away with the whole 'feed subscribers' thing.. Seems like it screws things up.. or makes us artificially addicted or something ya know?

PS i'm here cuz people are tweeting about giveaways here?? Am scrolling down now to see the books!

Erin @ Closing Time said...

I subscribe through Google, and I had not gotten anything from you in a week. Then today all of your posts from the past week came literally at the same time into my reader! So I didn't have to re-subscribe.

I have seen several other people on Twitter complaining that they have lost hundreds of followers on Feedburner. I haven't had a problem with my feedburner, but evidently there is something seriously wrong! But even though it says you have 0 subscribers, we are still out here. Hopefully the numbers will adjust themselves!

robin said...

Oh no!!! Which feed was it? Because I subscribe through Google and it still loves you!

mommaof4wife2r said...

it happened to another blogger friend recently...and that is just sad!!!!

BoufMom9 said...

I don't get the whole subscribers thing... I have no clue what it all means. I just stop by. have you on my blog roll... and that updates your blog.

I hope you get your readers back. I am sure you will. Everyone LOVES Angie :)

Night Owl Mama said...

Same thing happened to a few others around the blogisphere. I noticed my feed was totally gone too but the next day it was back. Weird I bet blogger had something to do with it. Maybe there is something in their notes to get it to all return.
FOund you in my feed :)

Cheryl Lage said...

Craziness...re-following...widgets may fail, but the true followers (too comment-rare or not!) always come back! ;)

Kathy B! said...

This is terrible!! Everywhere I go the blogosphere is gobbling up somebody's stuff... so wrong. I hope you're resored quickly :(

latree said...

I know it sucks, hope you get it fixed soon :D

Lula! said...

What is a blog feed?

(And right now, you and Francesca are HATING me.)

Don Mills Diva said...

I've still been getting all your stuff just fine...

Christi said...

I have been getting your stuff just fine too! bizarre!

MoziEsmé said...

I'm still here... What a weird deal!

Rhonda said...

Oh, my friend, that totally sucks!!!

Susie said...

I am sorry that you had to go through that! Whenever Blogger updates something, something else goes wrong:-(

ChefDruck said...

I'm not sure if you have feedburner or something else but my feedburner often drops subscribers for a few days and then they reappear. Stressful though!

Em said...

Blogger is the devil in disguise - I lost all the blogs I was following for a couple of days, but now they're finally back.

You're in my blogroll though, and those were never lost.

Curse you Blogger!!!

Michelle said...

Oh that is such a bummer when technology gets ugly. I haven't been blogging since we are on vacation (using a little down time to catch up). I will re-up!

sassy stephanie said...

I haven't been on much this summer, but dabble in the blogosphere every now and then. I was wondering! I know Blogger has been a booger for me lately.

sassy stephanie said...

Oh, and I'm WAAAAY to lazy to go searching for everyone. One blog I follow, haven't seen a thing in weeks. Suddenly, I get every.single.post she did from June 3rd in one day!

Jenners said...

This happened to me last week too! Then it corrected itself. I'm getting your feed fine ... I'm just behind on my reading.

Первый раз столкнулась с такой ситуацией. Я 2 года встречалась с парнем(Егором), потом мы расстались, но суть не в этом. Буквально через 2 дня я встречаю молодого человека (Сашу)и понимаю - это ОН! мне 21 год, в следствии этого не подумайте, что мне кто то тупо вскружил голову и тд. Во время второй встречи он предлагант встречаться, на третью везет знакомиться к родителям, как говориться у нас все круто и замечательно. Самое главное, что последний год отношений с моим предыдущим парнем я пыталась с ним расстаться, но не могла, как будто веревкой была к нему привязана, а здесь неделя - и я даже ни разу не вспомнила про него. Суть в том, что в последние 2 месяца моих отношений с бывшим у меня началось какое-то воспаление, что я благополучно списала на банальную молочницу и поход ко врачу отложила на обозримое время.После знакомства с Сашей сходила и выяснила, что у меня молочница и повышенное количество лейкоцитов, в принципе ничего страшного, купила лекарств и урезонилась. Когда через 2 недели отношения с Сашей перешли к интимным, он звонит на отпечаток день и говорит, что у него ТАМ сыпь, зуд и тд. Он в свою очередь идет ко врачу, и ему ставят диагноз:трихмонада. Оказывается, это и есть повышенное кол-во лейкоцитов. ИТОГ: Во-первых выходит, что егор мне изменил, во-вторых я боюсь, что отношения с Сашей испорчены на корню - что он сейчас обо мне думает, я не знаю.Я сталкиваюсь с чем то аналогичным первый раз. Как мне верно сейчас себя вести с Сашей?
