The Big Bear Butt is still alive

If, like me, you are a reader of The Big Bear butt and if you read that blog with a feed reader, you may not have seen any posts in a while. It sounds like he’s having an RSS issue:

I posted before that Feedburner no likey my upgraded Wordpress 2.7 install, and the widget they have provided just doesn’t work anymore.

So, I had to change to the current self-provided RSS feed for feedreaders…

But this means that anyone that only ever got my posts via a Feedburner provided feed thinks that I’ve gone silent for over a month.

I still get folks, nearly every day, email me to let me know that they haven’t had any posts in their feedreader from me in a long time, and asking if I’m still blogging.

I figure that the number of folks that haven’t checked the site to see why I went silent probably outnumber the ones that mail in.

So, I humbly, most pathetically ask that, if possible, my fellow blogger friends please make a teeny, tiny mini-post just mentioning that Bear is a dumbass and has a broken Feed, and if they are still interested in getting my posts, folks need to please, pretty-please visit the site and subscribe to the new feed.

I honestly can’t think of any other way of getting the word out at this point… since the Feed is broken.

Word to the wise… never trust to third party free service providers to continue to provide free services. Not if you like to NOT mess up your fun.

Seriously, thank you very much in advance.

So check your links, and if in doubt, go back to the website (in a browser) and re-subscribe to his RSS feed.
