In Which I Officially Declare RSS Is Truly Alive And Well.

By - February 02, 2012

I promise, for at least 18 months, to not bring this topic up again. But I do feel the need to report to all you RSS lovin’ freaks out there that the combined interactions on my two posts – 680 and still counting –  have exceeded the reach of my RSS feed (which clocked in at a miserable 664 the day I posted the first missive).

And as I said in my original post:

If I get more comments and tweets on this post than I have “reach” by Google Feedburner status, well, that’s enough for me to pronounce RSS Alive and Well (by my own metric of nodding along, of course). If it’s less than 664, I’m sorry, RSS is Well And Truly Dead. And it’s all your fault.

For those of you who don’t know what on earth I’m talking about, but care enough to click, here are the two posts:

Once Again, RSS Is Dead. But ONLY YOU Can Save It!

RSS Update: Not Dead, But On The Watch List

OK, now move along. Nothing to see here. No web standards have died. Happy Happy! Joy Joy!

  1. I’m here through a twitter link.  but, in general, the more dedicated followers will add you to their RSS feed.  Is that your conclusion?  they want to go to you.  you’re not reaching out to them.

      Yep. Read the original post and the comments, if you have a spare hour to waste (of course you do). It’s pretty entertaining.

    As a meizitang slimming capsule, a lot of us do not have the courage to take the first step to lose weight. It can be difficult to take the first step. However, you must try to do so otherwise it will not be possible for you to lose fat. You will probably need to take a diet in the meizitang. However, make sure that you will not go for a fad diet. They are not good for you when you consider your health. A diet which needs you to starve yourself is not good either.diet pills,best diet pills,weight loss pills       http://www.lingzhi-2daydiet.com
