Google Reader Annoyance
The other day, Kevin Drum noted that he was having trouble with his blog and Google Reader:
Instead of showing up a few minutes after I write them, my posts seem to sit in limbo for a few hours and then show up in batches all at once. I’ve checked the feed itself, and it goes out within a few minutes of publishing a post, so the problem appears to be with the reader, not the feed.
A discussion ensued wherein some people were having problems with his feed and not others, despite all participants using Google Reader.
I’m currently experiencing a related problem: Every once in a while, Google Reader will stream dozens of posts from a particular blog. For eample, right now there are umpteen posts from Dreaming 5GW going back months. Very odd and annoying.
