Atom / RSS Feeds Are Empty - Again

Once again, we have several reports from bloggers who publish blogs to external servers, using FTP.
Tha file at is ok. But the files in my FTP ( and atom.xml) are at 0.
I noticed on my server that although Blogger is writing the postings to the correct path and archives on my server, and although the progress screen says it is writing to the files atom.xml and rss.xml on that server, in fact these files are remaining at 0 bytes.

This problem, first seen a couple weeks ago, and fixed shortly after it was seen, has returned.

(Update 13:00): Blogger has declared this issue fixed.
Update: This has been fixed.
As with the previous occasion, I suggest that you republish your blog.

Yes, it looks like I'm having the problem again this time as well.

One of my blogs was last published yesterday AM and appears to be fine. A second blog of mine was updated this morning and the atom/rss files are 0.

This problem was declared fixed, several weeks ago. If you're still seeing this problem, you need to post details in GBH: How Do I?, or in Nitecruzr Dot Net - Blogging. Peer support is a much better way to explore this.

Adding A Link To Your Blog Post

Occasionally, you see a very odd, cryptic complaint I just added a link in my blog, but the link vanished! No, it wasn't your imagination.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.
