I apologize if, over the last day or two, you tried to come here via a RSS feed and received a 404 error.
Have you ever read a warning like 'Don't change the url of your blog or lots of things will go wrong'. But you think, I'm smart. I'll figure it out so you change it anyway. Then you get all proud because you figured out how to adjust what is needed to get everything working again. All is good now, right? You figure the people that designed the software were just trying to warn the other 1/2 of the population.
Then your husband comes downstairs and says, your site is down. Ah, you think, must be user error.
You try your own feed off your Google homepage. 404 Error - page not found. You panic. You changed your url days ago. Yikes!
You then figure out how to edit your feed so that it starts working again. All is good?
Nope. It only works for people who newly add your feed. Those already in place are still broken. Just curious, you look at your feed stats and see that you lost 25% of your feeds in the last two days?!
Humbled, you realize the people that wrote the software were talking to you. You restore your old url.
