Neither the Topics tab nor the Reader tab take me to new blog postings, as of yesterday. When will this service be reinstated? For the record, I preferred the thumbnail format to the reader format for checking out blogs. I scanned new blog posting every day to make comments and draw attention of new readers to my site (as you have recommended). It worked. From a high of over 500 in one day, I am now down to just ONE view today. That is indeed significant.
The blog I need help with is cookupastory.wordpress.com.
