RSS Feed

Hello blog readers! I hope that most of you who have subscribed to my blog's RSS feed are continuing to see posts appear. But I know that at least a couple of people have found that, since the Patheos upgrade, they are no longer seeing new posts. I thought I would mention it, in the [Read More...]

Interesting Posts Elsewhere: New Location!

I mentioned needing a replacement for TheOldReader. I am going to give Feedly a try – it looks promising. The main thing it lacks is the ability to share select posts to an RSS feed. But I think there is a solution which may be acceptable to those who've enjoyed that sidebar or RSS feature. [Read More...]

Farewell to The Old Reader

It sounds as though the enterprising individuals who created The Old Reader didn’t anticipate just how popular their creation would be, and just how much work it would take to maintain it. And so they will be eliminating their public site and most of the accounts soon. And so once again, I find myself in [Read More...]

The Old Reader is Down

Many readers will know that, in order to be able to have a feed of shared items that others can access (which used to be in a sidebar on the blog before that started causing errors due to slow load times), I moved from the now-defunct Google Reader to TheOldReader, which was basically a clone [Read More...]

RSS Graffiti and TwitterFeed

Those of you who connect to my blog via Facebook (whether on the Exploring Our Matrix page or my own personal profile) or Twitter will have witnessed some of the inadequacies of the NetworkedBlogs app, which has been offering dead links on some occasions and duplicate postings on others. I have deactivated the NetworkedBlogs syndication [Read More...]

Goodbye, Google Reader!

Reminder: Google Reader is Closing!

If you are reading this in Google Reader, you probably need this reminder. Google Reader will cease to be available on July 1st and you will lose all your feeds and other data if you have not exported them before then. I have been using The Old Reader, because I want to be able to [Read More...]

Blog RSS Feed Options

If you want to see the entire post in your feed reader, then you should use this one: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/feed If you want to see only a short preview, then you should use this one: http://feeds.feedburner.com/patheosmatrix Thanks for [Read More...]

Blog Issues

As regular readers have presumably already noticed, there are some hiccups with this blog at the moment which are beyond my control. There seems to be a workaround – if you type “cp” in place of “www” in the URL of a page address, you should be able to get there. Commenting works OK. But [Read More...]

The Old Reader (and the Blog Sidebar)

We sometimes complain about unnecessary resistance to change, but not all change is good. When Google Reader eliminated the share function, it was a nuisance. Now that Google Reader is getting ready to go defunct, many are equally frustrated. Fortunately, there seems to be a viable solution already available: The Old Reader. I’m not sure [Read More...]

If You Are Seeing Truncated Posts in Your Feed, Please Read This

I’m grateful to commenter Brian for pointing out that some folks have been seeing truncated posts in their subscriptions to the feed from this blog. If that is the case for you, you probably chose to “follow” this blog back when it was on Blogger, and the feed that you subscribed to that way has [Read More...]
