I think Warrior now has RSS...

Many months ago, when I was still at Huddersfield - actually, at the valedictory pie and peas blow-out - one of my colleagues told me how important it was for an aspiring young blogger to have an RSS feed. He even told me how to set it up, using Atom (which he said worked better with Blogger than RSS. Look, I don't understand any of this...). I tried, and gave up. Or so I thought.

Then on Christmas day (tragically) I was reading Granny Buttons' post about the importance of RSS, and, coincidentally, noticed that Warrior had dropped off his 'boatroll'. My second, and correct, thought was that it was because a new arrival had pushed Warrior to 51st position on a 50-long list, but my first was that it was a punishment for not having an RSS feed. This time I determined to do something about it. As a keen young chap (a contemporary of Baz's, but with headed notepaper and invoices) was coming to install our new router (courtesy of which this is now coming to you) I asked if he would sort it out. Easy, he said. Looked at the settings, and told me that it was already set up. I don't know how I did it, but obviously I did. Now, I still don't know anything about how it works (although I think I have grasped the gist of what it does) but I am given to understand that if you wish to avail yourself of this new convenience, you need this information: http://www.nbwarrior.blogspot.com/atom.xml
Do let me know if you do. Or if you can't.

The RSS works fine for me - enjoying reading the blog and as somebody who spent many weekends scuba diving out of Newhaven happy to read the odd post about their too. Julian

I've been using your atom feed for quite some time. I think it's set up by default on blogger.

All that worry! All those feelings of inadequacy! All for nothing! But very glad to hear it works - thanks
