My RSS Feed is Broken

The BookDepository

My RSS feed has broken and so new posts are no longer showing up in Google Reader. I am trying to fix it, but have no idea what caused the problem, so it is proving difficult. My husband normally sorts these technical issues out for me really quickly, but he’s gone to Turkey on business and so won’t be able to help me out until Sunday.

I’ll be adding a new post each day, so please check back regularly to see my latest posts.

Hopefully I’ll get it sorted soon.

    :( I’m still checking in.

    1. Jackie says:

      Thanks Verity! It looks as though you’re the only one!

      1. Verity says:

        :( Hopefully your twitter followers will have spotted your message.

  2. It actually seems unbroken for me at the moment, as I just got 10 posts from your blog all in a row in Google Reader. Good luck sorting this all out!

    1. Jackie says:

      aviannschild, I am having real trouble with it. It is amazing that you’ve just got 10 posts through, as it has not been working for days.

  3. I just noticed that I’m getting the preview version, though, as opposed to the whole thing, which I personally really dislike. I hope you’ll change back!

    1. Jackie says:

      aviannschild, Don’t worry – I hate partial feeds too. I will change it back as soon as I work out how!

      1. softdrink says:

        I got the 10 posts at once in Google Reader, and the partial feed, too…but you’re not chasing me away. :-D Good luck in getting it sorted out!

  4. Laura says:

    Ditto avisannschild’s 2 comments. Funny that the feed started working just when you posted that it wasn’t. I’d also prefer the full version to the preview. Good luck!

    1. Jackie says:

      Laura, I posted that it was broken about 12 hours ago – I have been tinkering for ages! It still isn’t working properly, but at least some posts are coming through now.

  5. Sandy says:

    Your posts have been coming through to me through Blogger. Then just awhile ago, a whole bunch of your old posts came through again! So I am in good shape over here. I feel your pain though. It is so frustrating when technical gremlins get in your business and start screwing things up, and you don’t know how to fix it.

    1. Jackie says:

      Sandy, I’m not convinced that my posts were going through OK on blogger – I think you only saw them after hours of me trying to force them through. My blog has been dead for ages – 60% down on visitor numbers today. In the last two hours (since they went through my stats have picked up again) I hate technical things I don’t understand !

  6. Yeah, I just got a bunch of posts from you too! Looks like your problem is fixed (hopefully).

    1. Jackie says:

      A Bookshelf Monstrosity, Fingers crossed!

  7. JoAnn says:

    Posts have been coming through blogger fine. Like Sandy, I just had a bunch of old ones come through again. Maybe it means the problem is solved (fingers crossed!)

    1. Jackie says:

      JoAnn, I really hope it is sorted now – just the partial feeds to fix now!

  8. Steph says:

    I use Google Reader and just got 10 posts in one bunch, just like someone else noted above. But I am also only getting partial feeds now, instead of the entire post in my reader!

    Good luck getting it sorted out, and I’ll be sure to check back daily until it’s all sorted out!

    1. Jackie says:

      Steph, Thank you! I’m working on it. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon.

  9. Megan says:

    Phew! I saw the partial feed and thought “Oh, say it ain’t so! Not another partial feed!” So sorry to hear you’re having problems with your feed, but glad you aren’t making the switch to a partial. :)

    Hope you get it all worked out soon!

    1. Jackie says:

      Megan, I really hope that people don’t just unsubscribe when they see that. I hate partial feeds, so I know I’d be really irritated to see them.

  10. Melody says:

    That sucks! I can feel your pain and frustrations, Jackie! I hope you’ll get everything work out soon!

    1. Jackie says:

      Melody, It still isn’t working properly – very annoying!

  11. Michelle says:

    Good luck sorting it out! Still here, even though I drooped a little to see the partial feeds.

    1. Jackie says:

      Michelle, Hopefully I’ll work out how to get rid of those partial feeds soon.

  12. Kathrin says:

    Hmm, I still see your posts in my Google Reader, no problems there – only I now see only the first couple lines, not the entire post – and I get them more than once. :-(

    1. Jackie says:

      Kathrin, I’m afraid there might be a bit of duplication while I try to sort it out – sorry!

      1. Kathrin says:

        No worries, I can live with it, just thought you might want to know what’s going on with your feed for Google Reader readers ;-) I just mark those posts I already know as read.

  13. Laura says:

    I just received another “delivery” of 10 or so posts, the same that arrived yesterday. The good news is, I also received your more recent “Do Leaders Make Better Bloggers” post (twice). Still receiving only partial posts. I’m using Google Reader.

    1. Jackie says:

      Laura, Thanks for letting me know. I am still trying to fix it, so I’m afraid that you may have a few more batches of my posts arriving. Hopefully some full feed ones will turn up soon!

  14. Amanda says:

    Good luck getting it sorted. I’m actually getting posts from you, but I actually get 10 at a time every couple hours, and they’re all partial feeds…weird. No big deal. I’ll just keep remarking them as read until it’s fixed. :D

  15. Laura says:

    Another batch of partial feeds this morning. It’s always the same batch, btw. And I want to be clear: I am NOT complaining about it. I’m just letting you know, thinking it might be helpful in getting it sorted.

  16. Laura says:

    Huzzah! I just received full feeds !!!
