Hello Escape from Cubicle Nation readers!
I am finally back on line and wondered if a few of you who subscribe to my feed would mind leaving a comment to this post letting me know that the feed is working properly for you. It has been broken all day, and I think it should be working now.
Thanks for your help, and sorry for the technical difficulties!
It has been a long, frustrating day. But I am happy that all is well, and look forward to writing a new post tomorrow.
Update 8/15 mid-morning: Thanks to the great comments from all of you, looks like the feed (and blog) are back in business. Now I will find a way to write my frustration up in a way that is (hopefully) useful to everyone!
Wonderful, the feed and your blog!
late to the game but wanted you to know that I, a fan of TypePad, had a similar experience two months ago – with TypePad – and did not know of the Six Apart Professional Network until I read it here!
I, too, would have loved to know of this option
– another loyal reader & fan
I got here via your feed!
works just fine!
Hi, Pam! Glad that EFCN is working again. Love to hear the story sometime of what happened.
Yes it does work (I use Google Reader if that’s of any help). Plus great content … OK that’s not due to the feed technicality 🙂

Oops – I posted too slowly.
Now it looks like my last note was from francine hardaway.
Of course, THIS one looks like it’s from me because I apparently have nothing better to do than be a pain in the tush. I promise I’ll stop. Please don’t kick me out.

As long as you’ve been dealing with the TypePad folks – can they make the “Posted by” tag sit ABOVE that dotted line? I know from others referring to past comments that I’m not the only one who keeps looking at the wrong name. See how it kinda looks like this was posted by the LAST person (some goofball named Pamela Slim, in this case) ?
Not like you have nothing better to do, but it bugs the crackers out of me! Maybe I’ll just write to them myself and see what happens.
LOL – you crack me up Andy. I will see what I can do, but based on my experience yesterday, I would not hold your breath!
I am going to undergo a blog upgrade/enhancement while I am off on maternity leave, so I will put that on the list, and maybe some of my crackerjack developers dudes and dudettes can resolve this issue.
By now you know the feed is working, but you also know how many people are reading and wanting to help you. This should make you feel very good! When’s the baby coming?
It does feel great Francine! I think I have some of the nicest readers out there. Whenever I ask for something, I get a flood of response. I feel very lucky.
I am due 6 weeks from today … not a moment too soon! Waddling around in our 114 degree weather leaves something to be desired. But well worth it in the end! 🙂
Take good care, and hope to be able to show you the bambino once she is old enough to hop in the car for a trip to your part of town.
Thank you SO much everyone for responding! Looks like everything is in order and I can get back to the business of writing.
Receiving you 5X5 Pam. Ain’t technology great (when it works)?
Working for me… if only you had the secret that could help me fix the Queercents.com feed in Wordpress. Apparently no one knows how to fix it & it’s making us (and me) very unhappy.
Good feed for me this morning. I will listen to the blogging program by you and Robert Middleton very soon. Look forward to it.
Working on bloglines fine for me 🙂
hello, it’s working!
Got it on Google Reader…
So far, so good, NewsFire, OS X
Working fine via Newsgator….hang in there Pam!
Hi Pam, your feed is working well on my Google Reader. You’re right about things breaking at the most inconvenient time. But all looks good now.
Keep up the great work!
Looking good so far.

Yup. You fixed it. Congratulations, Pam.

I pick up your feed using Sage in Firefox and it’s working perfectly. Welcome back!
Your feed appears to be working perfectly! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you that it continues to do so. As I subscribe to your feed, and have never commented before, I’ll just take this opportunity to say how much I enjoy your blog. Your posts are always thoughtful, informative and well written. So thank you, and keep up the good work!!
