Ann Ackermann | 1 comments I can’t upload the rss feed from my external blog in my author profile.

According to my rss feed plugin, it should be: https://www.annmarieackermann.com/?fe... but Goodreads rejects it with this message: “There was a problem saving that blog: External feed url isn't a valid RSS or Atom feed.”

I’ve tried .com/feed/, .com/rss2/, .com/rss/ and nothing seems to work.

Any ideas as to what's going wrong? I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

M.L. | 9 comments Hi Ann, I got the same message but mine showed up anyway. I have since removed it (I didn't want the political stuff there). I checked your profile and it shows a blog with 33 or so posts. I think there is a glitch in the system.

Hi, Ann,

This is your RSS feed:

https://www.annmarieackermann.com/feed/

That link opened your feed in both Windows Explorer and Chrome and should work if you copy and paste it into your account settings.

If not, Goodreads may have a problem because your page is protected--that is, the right click feature is disabled and so the source code is not visible.
