I think I’ve seen the future
I think I’ve seen the future, or a small part of it, regarding weblogs. Two things:
1. If you’re not syndicating your site as RSS it might as well not exist.
2. If you don’t include a <link...> tag in your home page that points to your RSS feed, then you might as well not be syndicating your site, and therefore it might as well not exist.
