New Subscription Links

Inspired by another blogger, I have added the ability to subscribe to updates either via email or by reader. If you subscribed to the previous reader, please re-subscribe using the updated/enhanced feed (which now goes through FeedBurner). I think it's quite an improvement.

And now for a technical question: does anyone know how to have the dates shown in the RSS feeds coincide with the dates shown on this blog site? This past weekend I backfilled entries of things that have happened over the past 5 weeks and overrode the default post date / time in the process (to match the date which they occurred). Nevertheless, the actual date of these posts is still known by BlogSpot and this is the date seen by RSS feeds. Is there any way for subscribers to see the dates as I’ve intended them? Any help is appreciated.

Hi Dave - This seems to be a problem inherent to Blogger, and I don't know how to fix it. Similar experiences with my blog is to just let it go - people will find the posts that interest them. I've spent too many hours troubleshooting things like this to realize it just isn't worth it in the long run. However. . .that being said, if someone does come up with a tip, please let me know :) ~ Tom, Ema's Recovery Blog.

Thanks Tom -- that's enough of a sanity check to know that I’m at least not doing something stupid. I think this has to be a bug and will submit this as such to the Blogger help group.

BTW -- you are quite the accomplished blogger. I added the new subscription links after seeing your Ema's Recovery blog. Thanks for introducing me to FeedBurner.
