    Hi. I use Bloglovin. It say’s I need to add this line so that my blog feeds RSS via their website.

    <atom:link rel=”search” type=”application/opensearchdescription+xml” href=”http://therandallmay.wordpress.com/osd.xml” title=”The Men-oirs of Randall May” />

    Is this correct?

    The blog I need help with is therandallmay.wordpress.com.

    Hi, I’m experiencing some problems with my RSS feed & Bloglovin as well. How did Bloglovin tell you to add it? Was it after you tried adding your blog?

    Anyway, I’m new to WordPress & blogging so I’m sorry I can’t help much. I can’t add my blog to Bloglovin and when I tried to validate my feed on W3C feed validation service, it said “it looks like this is a web page, not a feed”.

    I’m not sure but I think it wanted me to put an HTML code on my wordpress blog. I think I should just delete it off and try to re add it. By the way my blog spot link works just fine…

    You cannot enter any code at all into a free hosted WordPress.com blog.

    Is this just a widget code for a text widget that sits in the sidebar and displays snippets from blogs you link to?

    @timethief I don’t think it’s a widget, the text widget would be used to add a Bloglovin Follow button/badge to the site. I think this is about adding a WordPress blog to Bloglovin which means that it feeds RSS via Bloglovin. Then people can follow you via that site. I’m guessing I’m experiencing the same problem with my WordPress.com site as well.

    All WordPress blogs have multiple RSS feeds and you cannot alter or remove any of them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/
    This is your RSS Feed URL for your posts http://loftery.wordpress.com/feed/ but do note that the feed cannot display anything until you actually publish posts, not pages – pages do not have feeds.

    By default your front page displays all your posts and you have not published any posts. The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of your blog appeared because you deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
