is key. I have become such a snob that I won’t read a blog if I can’t
dump it into my BlogLines account. Okay, snob is a bit harsh. It is
more about convenience. I don’t have time to search out every nifty
blog I come across every day to see if there is a new post. I want it
delivered to me. When I find a new blog I enjoy, the first thing I do
is scour the sidebars for a link to syndication. No syndication, no
subscription. The blogger loses out on higher readership & I lose
out on reading some awesome posts. And so I’ll end with a simple plea
to all bloggers – check your sidebar. Do you link to your feed? Is it
easy to find? If not, why?” [so this is mass communication?, via Scripting News]
Update: heh… Paul Beard answered the call. Here’s an “RSS Bigot” badge! I’ve added it to my pages at the bottom of the right-hand column. Thanks, Paul!
