Up and Atom

Well, it appears that I now have a full-post Atom feed, which should be located at this address: I've subscribed to it myself in Bloglines so I'll know when it's working or not. You can see it for yourself if you click on the My Bloglines subscriptions link. Actually, I subbed to both my XML feeds - the Atom feed is the top one.

I could swear that I saw a post about newly-added Atom support on the SixLog earlier today, but either I hallucinated it or it's been deleted/moved. Not that I apparently need it - I found a basic template for Atom here, and though the link I'd created didn't seem to work right away, it's working now. So subscribe away, and drop me a note if you feel the need to add something similar to your MT blog.

So now I'm curious. I see that I have four subscribers besides myself to my standard feed. How do you read this site? Bookmark, blogroll, other RSS aggregator, no set method, other? I'd be interested to know.

UPDATE: I've gotten some feedback that my Atom feed is generating invalid XML - in particular, that there's a MovableType closing tag which is visible. I don't see that when I view my Atom feed in Bloglines, so is anyone else seeing something like this? I'm going to poke around the template that I've created to see if I can figure this out, but any other info I can get would help. Thanks.

I subscribe to your regular feed. I found you while doing a search to see who links (or linked) to me. So for now, you’re in my “thinking about these blogs” folder, while I read you to see if I enjoy you enough to bloggroll you. I’ve already made up my mind, but I’m just too damned lazy to actually do so for a while...

The fact that you had an RSS feed made it easy to read you often enough to make up my mind to do so. Like I said, I’m lazy...

I read using NewsMonster ( ), an RSS aggregator.

I'm switching to the full-post feed. But you knew what I was doing anyway. :)

Did you remember to add autodiscovery for the Atom feed?

How do you read this site?

Usually with a cup of coffee and a cigarette...
