Is anyone else…

on August 31, 2011

having trouble with the wordpress reader? For the past day or so, it has been telling me I’m not subscribed to anyone’s blogs.  lies!!!

I know a lot of you go through google reader (I do too, for blogger blogs- can’t figure it out with the wordpress blogs) but I was just wondering if it’s a bug with my blog or with the whole system.  Makes it really hard to keep up with everyone!

  1. hm…no idea, i use google reader. how do you add blogs to Reader? you should be able to add both (all of mine are there…)

      how do you add wordpress blogs using Greader? For blogger blogs, there’s usually a “subscribe to feed” key I click on. notso for wordpress blogs. I feel kinda silly for not being able to figure it out!

      • in google reader, in the top left corner, there is an “Add a Subscription” button. just copy/paste the url there and it should add the feed.

        if you dont see that button, it may be because the sidebar is collapsed. just scroll over the very left-hand side of the screen and you’ll see a very thin bar (with a small arrow in the middle). click on that, and it should expand the window.

        also, at the very bottom of that sidebar, there is a “manage subscriptions” link. from there, you can delete blogs or change their names. this is a great feature for people with password-protected blogs because it’s an easy way to store passwords. so, for example, for your blog, i renamed it to show up in my reader as “Lezbemoms (yourpassword).” so, if i ever need to re-enter your password because IE has forgotten it, i have it handy & dont have to dig through my old/archived emails.

        hope that helps!

  2. YES!!! it’s been driving me nuts!!!
