Adding a little RSS

I'm back from vacation, and have been moving my sites to a new host over the past week at the same time. I'm about 95% done, but that last 5% is tough! (It's the cron job and perl scripts. All the logs and databases have new locations, user names and passwords. Ugh. The change in php versions also broke my brittle pages. Mea culpa on that. Who knew this wasn't supposed to be mutable?)

Any way. For the exactly one of you reading this whose blog is stuck in the last decade, here's what I'm going to do. See this page?

Next time I post here, that page will have an RSS feed associated with it. And it's going to rock. It's fun to see what strangers are playing RPS for.

Now, you. Yes you. Add a feed for your blog, please.

Actually, it goes out to anybody who doesn't provide a feed. But if I make it sound like there's only one, maybe that'll make each guilty reader think I'm talking specifically to them. :-) But, erm, have you looked into adding a feed for your blog? I wouldn't think it'd be very hard, and it'd help your audience stay in touch.

Here are some clues: I think you're using Expression Engine. Your feed may come alive here. (But I may be wrong about that.) If you want it to be auto-discovered, (like the little orange thingy I point out in my next post,) you may want to refer to this tip.
