Feedburner can't find a feed from my blog (2 posts)

    I started a new blog and feedburner says that it can not find a feed from my blog. The first entry in my header is:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US">

    Doesn't that create a feed? Is there any reason why they aren't getting a feed from my site? The message Feedburner is giving me is:

    The URL does not appear to reference a valid XML file. We encountered the following problem: Unknown feed format encountered (The root element is [Element: <html [Namespace: http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/>)

    Any ideas? Thanks for your help

    It's not looking for html, it's looking for a url. The url of your blog's feed is something like:

    http://www.example.com/feed
