If you are reading this in a RSS reader, this entry is for you.
Feedburner has stopped updating entries automatically, and the only way it refreshes the feed is for me to go and do so manually. Most mornings I can do that, which is why you might notice entries that went live around midnight appearing around 8-9am Eastern time. Sometimes I can't, which is why you'll notice that sometimes four or five entries appear at once – and you've missed something, for which I apologize a LOT.
I've tried renaming the feed, recreating it, and pinging it. We even asked at the Expression Engine forums (this site is powered by Expression Engine) and other folks have reported that Feedburner is finicky, and sometimes just stops for no apparent reason. I haven't had any luck asking Feedburner why my feeds are no longer updating automatically as they should. We've tried three different feeds and all of them work except in Feedburner.
So, if Feedburner is going to be, as I said once of iTunes, like a passive aggressive heroine who is mad at the hero but won't tell him what he did wrong, it's time to dump Feedburner.
Thus I have to ask you to update your feeds.
I am so sorry to ask you to do this. As per my most recent Feedburner stats, there are several thousand of you, and I apologize deeply for having to ask this of you.
The feed for the blog is:
The feed for the podcast is:
ETA: And, as @datadiva pointed out, you'll want to unsubscribe from the Feedburner feed, too.
Again, I apologize. A lot. Profusely, in fact.
