Where Did The Readers Go?!

Photo credit
Within the last two weeks, I became momintheusa{.net}.  As a result, I began making sure that all of the subscriptions reflected the change, trying to make it as smooth a transition as possible.  It.  did.  not.  happen that way.

I attempted to update the RSS through Feedburner and received an error message.  As much as I tried to search for a solution, I could not find one.  Then I received another error message - that my file size was too large.  I searched for a solution to that and found one.  Finally!  I was able to move on.  I was happy that I was finally able to input information in Feedburner and not receive an error message.  The next day, I checked my blog to see the .net {instead of .blogspot.com} and my readers were almost all gone!  I had gone from over 200 subscribers to 20I'm not even sure what to say after that.  I do not know how to get the reader count back up.  The fact that I lost 90% of my readers baffles me and I do not know how to fix it.  This is one of those occasions where I should have subscribed to my own blog to know what happened.  Needless to say, I am a subscriber now.  This is all part of the maintenance that I recently read about.

If anyone can help me, please leave me a comment or use the contact form and let me know.

Tell me your thoughts!

  1. Yikes, Karina! I'm so sorry that happened! I'm terrified of making changes, because I just know I'll delete, like, everything and have to start over. So, I just deal with the things about my blog I'd like to change. :( Hope you get it figured out, friend.

  2. Hi Meredith,
    Thank you so much for your comment. I actually persisted and figured out what happened LAST NIGHT, as a matter of fact. I now have my readers (or at least the count) back. I appreciate you stopping by.
