Atom and RSS

I've been asked about the site feed for this blog. If you use a newsreader and want regular updates on when this blog is changed then you should use Atom which is supported by this blog and not RSS (Really Simple Syndication). Google (which owns Blogger) regards Atom as superior and therefore only supports Atom. If you don't understand this don't worry. However, if you use a newsreader you can put the URL into your reader for regular updates.


  1. Excellent! Thanks.

  2. Sometimes important discussions are going on in the comments. It could therefore be a nice idea to add a (RSS) feed for the blog comments. Blogger can do this, as far as I know.

  3. Thanks. Any advice on how actually to add an RSS feed would be most welcome. I have searched around the various options that Blogger gives me, but have not found this.
