What Happened to Bloglines? etc.

Back in the oily days, oh about 2001 or so, when I first launched up Chic Knits, I used a program called NewsPro to write an online journal. This program ran on the monster fumes of cgi and after a few months of blogging, I’d tweaked it to even allow comments, which before were handled by a funky little (yes, cgi) guestbook on another page.

Fearlessly and wonderfully, I moved the blog to Movable Type in 2004, another cgi based program where many years were enjoyed until a major database corruption happened last August.

So early this month, I jumped off the cliff!

PHP now rocks the house!

I installed a *faker blog* on another server and after I got most of the kinks out (Hee. Saying they’re all out is insane) I installed it on the Chic Knits website. I continue to massage older archived pages so if you see something or click on something and it doesn’t work right, give me a shout to infoATchicknitsDOTcom and I’ll tweak some more…

One of the more disturbing things that happened [due to my ignorance and it not being in the 5-Minute WordPress Installation Guide], was that the Bloglines Feed for Chic Knits up and vaporized!

This happened around the 7th of March and it’s taken me until now to fix it.

Take a look and see if it is working for you if you use Bloglines and if you use one of the other wonderful news readers out there, let me know if it is broke?

If it isn’t working for you now, you can click on the little orange square below or the one on the top right column and subscribe via Feedburner to the reader of your choice :)

    I was wondering why you went silent. I see you now in Bloglines.

    I came over here looking for you today after taking a while to realize that I hadn’t seen an update from you in Bloglines for awhile. Its still broke for me, but let me see if I just need to sub to a different feed.

  3. claudia says:

    Dude, I subscribed to a different bloglines feed and now all is well. Sadly, I think all the Bloglines folks will have to do this to see you.

    Yikes! It was working this morning—Wanda saw the links again.

    There are some people on another feed. I didn’t even know I had so many out there@! The default settings on Movable Type created, I believe 4. A person only needs one :)

    You did show up for me in Bloglines as I mentioned in the previous comment. Bloglines just showed 4 posts all of sudden after nothing for a few weeks. After the first week, I remembered I hadn’t seen anything, but you know, I just expect Bloglines to catch it, so if I don’t see anything I assume you’re busy and just hadn’t had a chance to post to the blog or you were still going through the upgrade.

    And Bloglines caught the new post as well. And as a fyi, your last post is dated March 28, 2007, in case you wanted to know.

    You suddenly showed up this morning!!! I didn’t realize you hadn’t been showing up for a bit.

    It seems working great now…glad you figured it out!

    Look forward you future updates again! Amy

    I use google reader, which worked fine till this week, and then I got your entire week worth of posts last night….but all seems to be working well now.

  8. Bonne Marie says:

    Thanks so much for letting me know!

    I’m not sure why it blasted out with 4 entries all at once—

  9. Norma says:

    I saw you in Bloglines. XO

  10. Gaile says:

    I use google reader and got a wack of posts tonight, but it’s working!

  11. Marcia says:

    4 new posts showed up on my google reader this morning.

    I gave up on Bloglines a while ago, when they went down for a weekend and didn’t update anything. I switched over to Google reader, and found that Firefox was much better behaved for reasons I don’t fully understand. I hadn’t noticed that your posts weren’t showing up, so they probably were. I certainly noticed something about changing hosts.

  13. Debbie says:

    Et voilà! Haven’t seen you on my rss reader (whatever Firefox’s default is) since March 7, but you were ‘back’ for me as of today.
