One Cobble at a Time

Not Feeling the Love for LiveJournal Today

Sandra Tayler's Journal

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

Greetings LiveJournal readers.

It was my intention to continue importing my blog to LiveJournal, but unfortunately LJ has made some change which interferes with my automatic process. If I can get it figured out, I will. Unfortunately I've already devoted 4 hours to messing with this and I have no more time to spare for awhile. I will cut and paste entries into LJ, but this process often marks the entries as "Date Out of Order" and then they don't appear on your automated friends page.

I'm still updating almost daily over at onecobble.com. In theory you can import my <a href=http://www.onecobble.com/feed/>RSS feed</a> from there directly into your friends page. I spent forty minutes trying to track down a set of instructions for doing that. I did it once and the feed I set up is still running on my friends page without error. I can't figure out how I did it.

I'll continue to cut and paste blog entries, but my life gets busy and I can't guarantee I'll remember to do them all. I'm sorry for what ever inconvenience this causes to you my friends and readers.

Edited to add: I will still be reading my friends page here. I know that some of my friends use LJ as their primary blog-style communication and I don't want to lose track of you.
  • Someone with a paid account needs to create a syndicated account which is connected to the RSS feed you link to, and then link it (as you'd link to any other LJ user, I guess), and then those of us who do not have paid accounts can put it on our Friends pages. Paid users can just use the URL to the RSS feed directly, but the rest of us cannot.

    Hope this helps.
    • Thank you for that link. I clicked from there to the syndication page. That was the page I was unsuccessfully searching for.

      Unfortunately the process bugged out "Error retrieving content." I'll try again later.

    • The downside to RSS feeds though is that they disappear after 2 weeks, taking all the comments with them.
  • I'm not sure if livejournal made a change or if your problems are related to the general problems livejournal has been having the last couple days. Once livejournal has been stable for a couple days it may be worth testing again.
