Feeding Frenzy

Rolling Your Own

You can provide a feed for your own site. There are a few ways to do this.

  1. The vast majority of people will want to use automated tools built into many blogging and content management systems. Blogger provides Atom feeds automatically.
  2. You could do it by hand.
  3. You could script your own automated feed generator.

Any feed you provide needs to be valid. You can validate your feeds at FeedValidator.

Do visitors to your site a favor. Consider creating a simple page about your feed(s), rather than linking directly to inscrutable source code. Put the feed links on the feed explanation page. Very few people are doing this...
