Feed behavior in New Blogger

December 26, 2006

Blogger moved to Atom 1.0 as a feed format. (Old Blogger blogs used Atom 0.3.) One of the new features of Atom 1.0 is an element which identifies the date/time at which a post was updated; this adds to the element, which identifies when a post was initially published.

Here's the trick: New Blogger now sorts your Atom 1.0 source feed by updated date, not by published date. So, if you decide to update an old post from months ago, it will suddenly leap to the top of your feed as the newest item, re-exposing your subscriber base to this old content (and whatever update you have since provided).
