Cliopatra non-award

Well, we did not win Best Group Blog from the Cliopatra Awards, but thanks for the nomination, Sharon! One of 16 nominations, with all those blogs out there on the internets ... we'll take it. Hearty congratulations and much mazel to Civil Warriors, winner of the category. Their blog is about the Civil War, which for reasons I can't understand, they seem to think took place in the 19th century. I don't see how they could win a Cliopatra Award if they can't even get the century of their topic correct. If it's Civil War you want, see here, here, here, here, here, or even here.

The vastly more important award--our 6th periodical Woodcut Caption Contest--will be announced soon, so post your entry quickly if you've got one; you've got to be in to win.

    Dear BtR,

    I've been having trouble with the RSS feed since about Christmas (i.e., not getting the feed). Do you have any indication whether this is a problem on your end or mine?

    Anon: could you let us know if it is working now? I believe the problem may be with Bloglines... do you use that service? I think I've fixed it now, but please let us know. Thanks.

    FWIW, I subscribe through Bloglines and haven't had any problems getting updates.

    Flavia: I think you probably subscribe via the Atom feed, which most Bloglines users get; but for some reason, with the RSS feed, if there are no Bloglines subscribers, then the feed itself may not get updated. I think this is the problem because I unsubscribed to the RSS feed around Xmas for some reason. I've resubscribed to it, so I'm hoping that fixes the problem.

    I'm far from an expert on these things, but previously I'd added the following text to my Mozilla Thunderbird RSS subscriptions:


    After I stopped getting the feed, I tried adding it again, but Thunderbird tells me that this is not a valid RSS feed. This is true even after Heironimo's fix.

    Apologies if this is elementary: I just like reading my BtR!

    Anon: I don't use Thunderbird, but I am able to subscribe to the RSS feed via Firefox's Live Bookmark, as well as via Bloglines. And the http://feeds.feedburner.com/BloggingTheRenaissance feed itself seems to be working. Maybe try subscribing from that page itself, rather than adding the link manually?

    Another option is to try the Atom feed: http://bloggingtherenaissance.blogspot.com/atom.xml That seems to work well with Blogger sites.

    Or if you want to subscribe via email you could try putting your email address in the "via email" box and subscribing that way. This should send you an email update.

    If anyone else is having problems with the RSS feed, let us know. Sorry I can't figure it out!
