http://wp.me/p44vKr-G8 this post did not appear in Reader today and several readers who receive posts by email had error messages when they tried to open it. I published from Dashboard from a draft copy. Strange thing that also happened is that it posted under an April date instead of today. I corrected that in edits. I send myself an email of posts and I got neither the edited date version nor the first published copy today. Can’t figure out what went wrong and I have read the forums.
Second question: if I buy my domain name will subscribers using the former address with wordpress.com in it still be directed to the new domain name site? Thank you!
It went out in the Reader; it just went out retroactively, and will be found if you can page all the way back to April. Posts go out on the tag pages as if they were published on the date they were started UNLESS you edit the time/date stamp before hitting Publish.
