No RSS Feed, No Read

I read a large and growing number of weblogs every day, but only

through RSS feeds. I don’t want to visit one or two hundred sites,

looking for new posts, so I don’t. It is becoming apparent that if

your blog doesn’t have a feed, I’ll rarely read it. With the recent

proliferation of software like RSSBandit,


and Syndirella, it’s

getting better and easier. In fact, using SharpReader today, with its

visually pleasing and familiar 3-paned interface, I feel like I’m

reading news and mailing lists, but only seeing posts by authors I’m

interested in.  I’m surely not the only one who feels this way. The

moral is, if you want your blog to be read, publish a feed.
