Where's My Feed
I've had several comments and emails recently asking where I've hidden the footnoteMaven's Real Simple Syndication (RSS) Feed, so I'm hoping this post will help you find my feed and any RSS feed.
An RSS Feed Icon usually looks like this and can be found in any number of places on a web page: Except on footnoteMaven, where my feed icon looks like this:
If you do not find a feed icon on the page, here are several ways you may locate the blog's Feed.
A blog has a possible 4 site posts feeds.
A blog URL that contains the word blogspot would look like the four below:
Atom (classic): http://PlaceBlogNameHere.blogspot.com/atom.xml.
RSS (classic): http://PlaceBlogNameHere.blogspot.com/rss.xml.
Atom (new): http://PlaceBlogNameHere.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default.
RSS (new): http://PlaceBlogNameHere.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=
You can place a "www." in front:
Atom (classic): http://www.PlaceBlogNameHere.com/atom.xml.
RSS (classic): http://www.PlaceBlogNameHere.com/rss.xml.
Atom (new): http://www.PlaceBlogNameHere.com/feeds/posts/
RSS (new): http://www.PlaceBlogNameHere.com/feeds/posts/
If the URL does not contain blogspot, but is a .com, it will look like this:
Atom (classic): http://www.footnotemaven.com.com/atom.xmlNow, if you're very ambitious, go to the tool bar of your browser. Select - View - Page Source:. The feeds are contained in the source code and will look like this:
RSS (classic): http://www.footnotemaven.com.com/rss.xml
Atom (new): http://www.footnotemaven.com/feeds/posts/default
RSS (new): http://www.footnotemaven.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="footnoteMaven -Today, however, our browsers make it very easy to access a blog's Feed. (Select the images below to enlarge.) The Feed button is circled in each - Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. Those buttons will take you to a site's Feed.

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="footnoteMaven -
RSS" href="http://www.footnotemaven.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss" />

Hope You Can Find Me Now!
