I just read about bloglines on the other post here so I went and signed up. Now I am trying to figure out how to sign up my blog onto this. What I mean is I was able to subscribe to bloglines with no problem. There was a place to create a button which I put on my blog so people could subscribe to mine. But when I click on it, it says that my blog does not have an "rss feed." Can someone tell me how to set this up, if you know?? Is this something I do within bloglines.com because I have tried. I hope someone understands what I am talking about and can help me easily!!!! THANKS!!

Lisa- I'm not sure- but I think you can sign up for an RSS feed at blogspot as part of your blog. I am on typepad and that's how I got my feed.

Go to the dashboard for your blog and click on the Settings tab, then click on Site Feed. Choose Publish Site Feed = Yes, and decide if you want long or short descriptions. The URL for your RSS feed will be displayed. Save your settings and republish, and refer to the RSS feed URL in your chicklet link code.

Thanks to both of you. I did check blogger dashboard and I do have it set to publish site feed. I see the URL here. What I don't know is what is a "chicklet link code" which you mention above JK? Is this something on bloglines or within blogspot. I see you have blogspot as well.
Thanks.

I think I figured it out. Do you mean the code I used to create the Bloglines button for my blog? I just changed it and I think it works.....but I am not sure totally either. What is interesting about blogspot is that it is so UNuser friendly if you are new to all of this!

What I was referring to was the URL that's in the code for that button, but you're right, regenerating the button fixed the problem.

But it looks like you've got some other formatting issues with things not staying in the side or center sections (I'm viewing it with Firefox on a PC). You might want to print out your template and re-do some of the code that you added. Progress meters, buttons, etc..

UH Oh, I am not sure what to do! It looks totally FINE in internet explorer. But I also have firefox (hardly use it) but I opened it up and I see what you mean! Shoot. I am not sure how to fix all that. I guess i will just have to play with it.

Reading all of your problems and set up requirements for blogspot make me glad I'm on typepad!
