Is anyone else seeing ALOT of old posts coming up in their Bloglines account as new posts today?
I know this happens from time to time on an occasional basis but today it seems that every second unread item in my Bloglines account is one that I’ve read before. Some have dates on them from weeks ago while others have todays date on them despite them being written a week or so back.
I’m not sure whether it’s just on Feedburner feeds but it could be as every feed that I’ve seen it happening on so far is a FB one. Very odd and increasingly frustrating for this blogger who relies on news aggregation accuracy pretty heavily.
update: thanks to those who’ve commented below pointing out that this isn’t a Bloglines problem but a feedburner one. Detail below on discussion on it.
This messup has highlighted a couple of things for me:
1. Just how many bloggers are using Feedburner (I’d estimate that of the 600 feeds I’m following that one in six would be having the problems).
2. It’s made me aware of just how many blogs have not been updated in quite a while. I have a lot of feeds in my list that havn’t been posted to for weeks, months and even a few that have not been posted to in a year. It might be time for an RSS spring clean.
