A spot of free advice....

 
When you are adding a blog to your blogroll, make sure you add the feed for the blog, not the feed for the comments. Especially when it is a very popular blog.....

Awww. But what if you want to read the comments? That's why there're two feeds... and why I've subscribed to both of yours, for example. ;)

Ah - but I have a small, select group of commentators ;0) not 30 million comments every post - which is great in its way, and shows how much of a community there is, but I wondering why the heck I wasn't getting the actual posts....

I didn't realise that. Doh! I'm such a fool, I've got a few blogs like that on my blog roll and I couldn't understand why it kept saying there were new posts! Thanks for the public service announcement.

Not to worry, though, 'cause it's not like they make it easy to figure out. I mean, it took me quite a bit of guesswork to add the subscription to comments for blogspot blogs, 'cause they don't list them anywhere. FYI, the separate feed url's are http://xxx.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default and http://xxx.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default if you want to add both to your reader (obviously, replace the xxx with something meaningful).

Hi, Davimack - I've been trying to comment on your blog, but whenever your page comes up it is frozen. I'm not having this problem with any other page and wondered if there is a problem at your end?

Hi India,

Just a cheeky wee ask here - I'm off on maternity soon so was wondering if you know of anyone who's like to work part-time down here in Troon at Fankle? If you could pass the word around, that would be much appreciated. Love the blog, always nice to see what everyone's been up to!

Cheers,
