Let's Break Up Then Do the Rebound Thing
My sister, Barb told me she's been getting the hateful little red thing next to my blog name on her bloglines subscription, the one that tells her my feed isn't good. And we're not talking about my cooking this time. Who the heck knows why that happens? I sure don't. She told me that she unsubscribed to me, then resubscribed and it was just fine.

One of the blogs I subscribe to is 'Blogging Basics 101', which I find to be really helpful. Sometimes I already know how to do what they're telling me about, but often I have no clue, and I go there and learn something. Sometimes I still don't get it after I read the post. I recently read something about 'burning your own feed', and my eyes rolled back in my head a bit. I went back two more times before I decided to give it a shot. Not that I really understand why I need to do it, but it apparently makes subscribing to a blog work better, and that's enough explanation for me, and you can tell with that techy description it's a sheer miracle I got it to do it's thing at all.

So I'd like to ask anyone who regularly reads this blog to break up with me - unsubscribe in bloglines or whatever reader you use. Then please, please go back to my main template and click on that little orange and white button that says 'subscribe in a reader', on the left side, under my template header. When you click on it, it will be very easy to choose whatever reader you normally use, and there should be a good feed to subscribe to. I'm hoping that will fix all the wonky problems people have been telling me they're having, either seeing new posts, or leaving comments or seeing comments. If you've never subscribed but rather are using a bookmark, this might be an easy way for us to keep up visits.

So let's break up. Then could we please remember we miss each other, recall when we used to give each other that funny look that spoke volumes without words, and then let's think of the future we had planned together, all the great vacations we were going to take, how our kids were going to be best friends, and grow up and marry each other, and we'd remember the funny inside jokes we had that nobody else understood, ... oh right, wrong relationship, wrong memory. But I would like it ever so much if we could rebound, if we could continue on in this cyber-friendship, and all you have to do for that to happen is click on the little button. Supposedly. I don't understand it, but that's how it works. I think. If you want to understand it more, feel free to hop over to Blogging Basics 101. It's a great website for all those techy thingamajigs.
