Google reader & blogger blogs

I'm feeling really pleased at the moment. Why? Because I figured out something on Google reader.

I've been having problems adding some blogs because I get a message like "no feed for this blog".

I left some comments on a number of blogs but nobody could give me an answer. It was actually when I emailed Rae that I started thinking of a solution.

I thought of adding all the blogs I couldn't see with Google to my Bloglines account (that I set up once but never ever used).

So I entered the blog URL and when Bloglines gives you all the different feeds, I copied that link and pasted it into Google reader.

  1. Go to bloglines.
  2. Under Feeds, click on Add.
  3. Under subscribe, enter the URL.
  4. Then under Available feeds, copy the top feed URL and paste into Google reader under Add subscription.

It works!!!

I'm glad you figured it out! Thanks for posting about it too. Now I definitely have to go use my Bloglines account..that I created but have never used, lol. Have a great Monday! =)

Well, it really does work. I've deleted all my readings from Bloglines, and decided to go to Google Reader. I tried to close the blogline account, but couldn't. I'm so glad I found out about this from you before I tried again. You are a wealth of information!!!
