Blog feed issues

Just a quick site note: I noticed the other day that there seem to be a lot of blogs that have stopped live-updating and have fallen to the bottom of the "NEPA BLOGGERS UPDATES" list on the sidebar - including some that I know had functioning site feeds recently. Site feeds are automatically detected by Blogger, most of the time; usually, I just have to enter the blog address into the appropriate box, and Blogger will do the rest. (Sometimes, especially with Tumblr blogs, I have to append "/feed " to the end of the address.)

One of these blogs is Scranton Christmas Windows, which was our featured PA Live! Blog of the Week a few weeks before Christmas. For some reason, the feed is now pointing to, which will take you to a page full of html (or is it xml?) jibber-jabber.

I think the only thing I can do is delete and reload each of these sites on the sidebar, one at a time. This will be a time-consuming process, but unless the problem magically fixes itself (just like it magically broke itself), I don't see an alternative.
