This musing of Jim McGee's nicely sums up my thoughts on RSS. As a user I love and can't do without it. As a website owner I find it disturbing that people would rather see a simple text summary of my blogs rather than come and admire the site I spend endless hours presenting nicely. Being realistic I accept what Jim's saying:
Sites that provide no RSS feed essentially don't exist for me.
Before anybody picks it apart I just want to say that I know it probably doesn't validate and that it doesn't provide any summaries. I am working with Domino after all! I don't really care too much about that. What matters is that it works in the newsreaders I use. What it functions as is a way of tracking new postings. That is, the seven most recent blogs and articles. What it shouldn't be is an excuse never to have to pay me the ocassional visit ;o)
PS: Notice also that I've started adding titles to blogs. Just thought you might like to know.
