why are my thumbnails sometimes blank?

Answer: Research has found that the reason is most often caused by changes Google Blogger has made relative to how photos are stored.   Fortunately, we have customized the WP RSS Aggregator plugin and the problem appears to be resolved.

As part of our efforts to solve the blank thumbnails we have also improved Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  Specifically, the thumbnail file names now are composed of your site name plus the post name.   Prior to this improvement the thumbnail file names matched the file names used by blogger which was unfriendly Globally Unique Identifier (GUID).
