My new (old) blog roll and RSS

I’m tending and posting to my blog a little more since the recent redesign and as part of that effort, I’ve brought back two very old-fashioned things: A blog roll and an RSS feed.

We all had blog rolls back in the day and I’ve no idea why they went away. I split mine between the UK-based Britpack—with their own Union Flag underpants logo designed by Jon Hicks—and the Johnny Foreigners. For this update I redrew Jon’s pants PNG to make a crisp new SVG. Sue felt that “Johnny Foreigners” might not be appropriate today, so I renamed them to “Favourites.” Most of the Britpack and Johnny Foreigners don’t blog much anymore, so I added a few new people whose writing I enjoy. They include the brilliant Andy Bell, Michelle Barker, and Ahmad Shadeed.

I recently started using RSS again through NetNewswire on the Mac, so I added a new RSS feed for my blog entries.

If RSS is your thing too, and it should be, you can, and should, subscribe to my feed.
