A Little Housekeeping

So Google Reader got shut down, with great wailing and gnashing of teeth. All was silent, void.

Filling that gap, there are a ton of other feed readers; I'm currently using Feedly, myself. But I am not about to go and try all the other ones out just to make sure everything is OK, so let me know: are images showing up for you? Are there any other problems with the feed? We had a huge problem with people hotlinking images a while ago so I only selectively allow images to be served from other sites. If you have an issue with your preferred reader, I will fix it (yes, even for one random person who I may not know at all). Comment here, on Facebook, or drop us an e-mail.

Speak now, or forever have to click through to the post to see the pictures!

Can't see any pictures from recent posts. Don't know anything about feed readers, just a lowly follower.

I use Bloglovin, so I have to click through to see the whole post anyway, but images do show up for me there. I haven't noticed any other issues with it.

You're the only blog on my feed that I absolutely have to click through since your feed doesn't have the full text, much less pictures. It never occurred to me to be bothered by this. So I say don't mess with what works...

(I'm using Feedly and hate it, but I haven't found anything better.)

Rae, subscribe to the Atom feed instead of the RSS feed (see the links on the home page sidebar). I know for sure I have that working on Feedly!

I don't use a "feed", whatever that is. I have your blog bookmarked.

Are there photos with THIS post I am supposed to be seeing??

Nope, Gayle, if you're looking just at our site, you should be fine. No photos in the post. Some people keep up with blogs using a feed reader, which tells them when there is a new post. It's a nice way to deal with sites like ours that don't update on a schedule. But whatever works for you is fine. :)

Note: We're getting pummeled with spam comments, so I've turned off the ability to use any HTML or include any links for the time being. Email with any issues.
