shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


please to help.

I know someone out there has to understand all this site syndication stuff. It is not the people who write blogger fact sheets about it, though, I'll tell you that.

After wrestling with the site feed settings for wayyyyy too long today, I've managed to enable an atom site feed for Shaken & Stirred. Which sounds all well and good, except when I tested it out in my newsreeder and looked at it over on the feed page, it drops all formatting and links out of the posts. The other feeds I'm subscribed to so far look pretty, with all their formatting and links intact. They also happen to be RSS feeds.

Because I was a Blogger Pro user, I can do an RSS feed instead if I want (though I couldn't quite figure it out and would need assistance with that too; only Blogger's Cry for Help system isn't taking messages at the moment), so if the answer is Atom just looks hideous and drops links, any guidance on setting up RSS instead is extrmely welcome. Really, any advice or commiseration is welcome, as always. Post in the comments or write me at Gwenda007ATgmailDOTcom. Thanks.

UPDATE: Of course, as soon as I said something, problem solved. This post looks fine in my newsreader. So, if anyone out there (Richard!) who uses a newsreader and adds the site could let me know if it looks fishy and formatless to you, that'd be great. Otherwise, I'm going to assume that it's just an issue with all the posts I put up before I enabled the feed. Yes, technology hard.

    Gwenda! So excited you are using your Atom feed! Looks great in SharpReader, which is what I use! Awesome!
