I had to get the information from a FeedBurner forum (thanks FeedBurner!) but I figured out what I was doing wrong with how I was describing the feeds on my web site. Blogger produces an Atom feed and I had been describing the document incorrectly. Now, if you go to my home page and use the Bloglines bookmarklet you’ll find my weblog feed and if you go to the All Site RSS Feeds page you’ll see all three feeds.
Also, if you’re a long-time subscriber like Mike and Xavier, you need to make sure that you update your feed URL. I’ve gone to a scripted feed for tracking purposes and if you continue to use the old feed (atom.xml) you’ll see funky behavior. You can visit this page to get the new feed URL.
