Ahhh the glory days of blog syndication, it seemed about all I wrote about at one time. It’s been eons since I set up a Feed WordPress enabled site. maybe NetNarr was the last.
But the stuff still works- the main DS106 site, where it all started for me, pretty much untended, keeps flowing along currently subscribed to over 1740 blogs and since 2011 has accumulate over 96,000 syndicated posts.
Every then and then I consider updating my Feed WordPress 101 series started in 2014 — sure, maybe.
But the light is on at the new event in 2022 you should sign up for, the Equity Unbound Mid Year Festival or MYFest22. It’s a fresh and flexible approach to quote unquote professional development. I’ve been doing some small bits to help out, and my contribution so far is setting up an invitation for participants to participate in the DS106 Daily Create as a means of flexing media skills and also just doing some fun creativity.
But that’s another post. Maybe.
I’m happy to be working with my long time colleague Laura Gibbs who is just more on fire than ever since retiring, and she keeps tossing in more fun bits for participants, like a shared reading room and music room. Now she is a long time advocate of making use of RSS and syndication in her courses, and doing it in a viable but very different approach from my WordPress ways. And she is pretty psyched and doing nifty things bringing content into Padlet or all things by RSS.
So when there is a call to create a blog tag RSS feed, how can I refuse to toss in something to test? So in my plan to rev up the blogging look or a few more here tagged myfest
Consider this only a Feed Test.
It won’t be graded 😉
Powers of Syndication, RSS, Activated!
