ARE YOU AN RSS FEEDER?


Are you an RSS feeder?

The IPKat knows how many people are on his email circular list and his site-counter tells him exactly how many hits the weblog receives (though there are quite likely more hits than hitters) - but he has no idea how many readers extract his posts through the use of RSS feeds.

Right: curiosity is a characteristic of the kat. This fine specimen can be found on the Animal Photo Archive

Out of sheer curiosity, the IPKat would love to know who his RSS feeders are. If you read this and are one of the RSS brigade, could you just email him at theipkat@yahoo.co.uk, with the heading RSS. He promises he won't retain your email address or use it for any untoward commercial purposes!

Yes! I use Firefox's excellent livemarks feature for the IP Kat. One suggestion:

All caps for the headlines are harder to read at a glance than normal casing.

I find Google's ability to create a personalised homepage useful in collating RSS feed lists. The advantage is that there is no need to download an RSS feed reader, and the lists come up each time you start Firefox (or IE, if you're old fashioned). My wikispace also has RSS abilities, which I find useful. Others might find it useful too.

Dedicated RSS readers are generally better than Firefox or IE7's built-in readers. I've found Google Reader is an excellent RSS reader. I use it for all my work-related feeds, and then at home I use Liferea for other feeds.

Another good reader is the Sage extension for Firefox.
