IMPORTANT NEWS for email and RSS subscribers

I've learned this morning (thanks to a couple of subscribers) that the links in the email newsletter for both TwitterLit and KidderLit (ScatterLit is not affected) have not been working. I discovered that while the links on the site and on the Twitter feed are fine, everything that's going through Feedburner was affected--this means also anyone subscribed to the feedburner version of the sites' RSS feeds. I'm not sure why, but somehow Feedburner is messing things up so that anyone clicking on the link will get a script error.

I've decided to just abandon Feedburner. This is a small hassle for anyone who's subscribed to TwitterLit or KidderLit by email or RSS, but ultimately it will probably result in fewer problems down the road.

IF YOU ARE SUBSCRIBED TO KIDDERLIT OR TWITTERLIT BY RSS
please update the URLS you subscribe to to:

TwitterLit US RSS feed: http://www.twitterlit.com/atom.xml
TwitterLit CA RSS feed: http://www.twitterlit.com/atom-ca.xml
TwitterLit UK RSS feed: http://www.twitterlit.com/atom-uk.xml

KidderLit RSS feed: http://www.kidderlit.com/atom.xml


IF YOU ARE SUBSCRIBED TO KIDDERLIT OR TWITTERLIT BY EMAIL:

There is a new subscription box in the sidebar of both http://www.twitterlit.com and http://www.kidderlit.com. You can subscribe to receive updates by email. The newsletter will now be powered by Feed My Inbox rather than Feedburner.

My apologies for the trouble.
