Side Note:

Feel free to edit this part out but unable to add my blog url in step one nor will it validate. E-mails sent to support. Mr. Alberti responded a few days ago, Mr. Goldberg did not.

Any help on that end would be much appreciated. Would like to link blog to page with feeder.

Thanks again
