Blogger posts not showing
As a few members have pointed out, Blogger blogs are not showing up on Blotanical Picks lists. I'm still unsure of the problem but please be patient with me as I continue to find the error preventing these feeds from being read.
In the meantime, if you really want to have your posts show up on Blotanical and you use Blogger as your publishing platform then I would suggest another alternative. A better option to having Blogger handle your feed is to get Feedburner to do it instead. You may have noticed a few Blogger blogs showing up on the lists however none of them use the default feed but have burned their own at Feedburner.
How can you do it?
- Head over to Feedburner.com, join up and then burn your feed. It's easy to do and once you've done it you will be given a new address for your feed that will look something like http://feeds.feedburner.com/[Your blog name].
- Once you have this address take it over to your Blogger account. In the Settings section under Site Feed you will see a field titled Post Feed Redirect URL. Type your Feedburner feed address in here and then click Save Settings.
- Now that you have your new Feedburner feed and you've updated your Blogger settings the final point is to come back to Blotanical and update your settings here. To do that, go to your Plot and in the My Blogs section click the Edit button under the blog you want to update. Then in the Blog Feed field type in the address of your Feedburner feed - the same one you typed into your Blogger settings.
- NB. When burning your feedburner feed please do not add the line blogspot.com as part of the [Your blog name] link. This will definitely exclude you from being picked up.
As for the other problems with Picks - stay tuned. I am still working on some customizations that will keep most members happy. This should all be finished by the end of the week. Thanks for your patience.
