FeedBurner – Bloglines Problems

It looks like my blog’s feed, as well as OraQA and OraNA feeds are not being polled by Bloglines, and as a result new items have not been updated (in Bloglines only) for the past two or three days. They are all FeedBurner feeds.

If you subscribe to these feeds in Bloglines, you will see a red exclamation mark [!] next to the subscription. It also looks like that I am not the only one noticing this. Feed owners are complaining in the FeedBurner forum. Also check out Darren Rowse post which mentions that FeedBurner claims that the issue is at their end.

This makes me wonder if it is worth it to introduce another POF (Point Of Failure) between my feeds and my readers. But I guess no system is “Unbreakable”.

Update: I contacted Bloglines, here is their reply:

Bloglines has received errors from FeedBurner while attempting to retrieve the feeds in question. FeedBurner is aware of the issue and working to resolve it. We have manually reset the feeds, although this may only temporarily resolve the issue in Bloglines. Subsequent errors may take 24 hours to automatically clear. Thank you for your patience.

Update 2: Looks like the problem is solved. The feeds are normally updated in Bloglines and reported correctly in FeedBurner. Thanks for whoever took care of this issue.
