    My blog does not appear after I published it. I went to “Reader” and selected the category, It doesn’t show up…????
    Blog url: http://alinashomes.wordpress.com/

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

    Literally hundreds of people are complaining about the Reader right now. I think staff are working on it.

    However, in the case of your blog, you might be in violation of some of the rules here. Staff routinely penalize or even suspend blogs whose whole purpose, in their estimation, is to drive people off Wp.com to other sites. Every one of your posts contains at least one link to your external site, so that might be tripping you up. I suggest you put a widget in your sidebar talking about your other site and not link from your blog posts so much.

    Note, however, that I am not staff and this is just the voice of an experienced volunteer talking.

    Thank you very much! Is it because I have too many external links or because I shouldn’t have any at all???

    Too many. One in each article is too many.

    Just a suggestion, it would be wonderful if the WP staff could post even vague updates on their blog instead of just new features. I know you all are volunteers but I left a comment on the infinity reader post (pointing out that the reader problem seemed to coincide Witt the infinite function) but my comment was deleted.

    Okay, now I have to amend my statement. The WP staff were nice enough to email me about my comment. That makes me happy. Good just to be contacted. I still thnk they could save time by posting updates even if they close comments. People just want to hear update even if they don’t have a specific timeline.

    Oh, you don’t have to tell me. I’ve been dealing with the communications style at WP.com for half a decade.
