Sometimes when I put up a new post, Google Reader picks it up almost immediately (What? You don't monitor your own posts? You should. Hover your mouse over the "received" date to see the published date.)
But sometimes, the delay between posting and appearance in Google Reader is an hour, or more.
And sometimes, like with the post I made last nite, it is just plain wrong. Google had the post listed as being made on 3/11, and therefore it didn't even show up in the new postings, and in fact would never be visible to those using this tool.
So I reposted it.
