    i write a diary- style blog about my weight loss journey... should i add an rss feed? if so, how do i do it?

    The blog I need help with is bythehorns7.wordpress.com.

  2. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and can be used to notify your subscribers when you post a new entry on your blog. This link to the NY Times' explaination of RSS might be helpful: http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/. WordPress.com automatically generates RSS feeds for all of its blogs. You can subscribe to yours by clicking this link: http://sistersocrates.wordpress.com/feed/

    Hope that helps!

  3. WordPress.com's Support Docs are a really great resource. Here's what I found after searching there for RSS

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/feeds/

  4. Add the RSS Links Subscribe Widget to your Sidebar - make it easy for your visitors to find your feed.

    Id you wish you can place the RSS Links widget in your sidebar. This makes it easy for your readers to stay updated when you post new content or receive new comments.
    The URL for the RSS feed for your posts (entries) is: http://sistersocrates.wordpress.com/feed/
    The URL for the RSS feed for your comments is:
    http://sistersocrates.wordpress.com/commnets/feed/

  6. I'm sorry I typed that last URL wrong. :( This is the correct link http://sistersocrates.wordpress.com/comments/feed/
