RSS & LiveJournal Feed Problem (Fixed)

Some of you may have noticed problems with my RSS feed, and the LiveJournal feed that runs off of it (I’m not using LJ much lately, so I didn’t find out about this until my sister brought it to my attention). Turns out there was a phantom character—known as a ‘gremlin’—in one of my entries, which caused the feed to be invalid XML. This caused a parsing error when attempting to use the feed with some feed-readers, including whichever one LiveJournal uses to parse and display the feed. I have ‘zapped’ the ‘gremlin’ and everything should work fine now. LiveJournal updates their version of the feed again at 2am tomorrow (Monday, Sept. 24), so everything should be back-to-normal then.
