Speaking of Oops

A subscriber informs me that her feeds to my blog create an unwanted pop-up that tries to open a dial-up connection. I have taken down all of my Widgets and third party links from my right hand column. Anybody else get unwanted pop-ups from my blog? Pollock linking by accident?

Additionally, I have attempted to kill any feed utilities that are my option to do so. That shouldn't, as far as I know, end your actual subscriptions. Personally, I use Bloglines, and I subscribe to URLs manually. That means I don't click offered subscriptions at blogs. It isn't a security thing, but I just find it the easiest method of using Bloglines.

I did not take down Statcounter or end my Technorati association.

Apparently some problem exists with Google Reader not recognizing this blog. I found that to be true myself.

Update: Google Reader is catching my posts with no problem. I entered the http:// by accident, and it just wants the name without the subscript.

Anyone else have subscription issues here?

Casey I thought I would let you know I came here via my google reader - so its working but I realise it has not been as I have a month or so of back reading! I guess I had better make a cup of coffee

Thanks, Sharon, and nice to meet you.
My Google Reader is working. Somehow, I got a feed input fixed, there.

I am currently testing a blog with the Minima template to compare templates. Maybe I can clean up some third party code changes that have mucked up my blog.

Anyone get unwanted pop-ups?

Works great for me, Casey. (I also subscribe manually to favorite blogs, using Blogarithm.)
