RSS comments feeds

In the past I’ve mentioned that I have an RSS feed for the comments to my site. For me personally it’s more useful than email notification of comments.

It turns out that Adam Rice has a comments feed template that works with Movable Type. (You may need to view source to see it.) There are probably other such templates, for Movable Type and other systems.

What I’m saying is—if you’re already using a newsreader, and you have a weblog, and you don’t have a comments feed, try it out, you may be surprised by how much you like it.

Update: Adam Rice wrote in the comments to say that credit should be given where due. Absolutely right. Adam’s template is based on one created by Mark Pilgrim.
