RSS: Testing one, two, three

This is the first test of my home-made RSS feed system. Let's see if it works!

UPDATE: Indeed, it does seem to be working on the very first try, to my immense surprise. For you folks in Rio Linda, "RSS" stands for "Really Simple Syndication" (or close variations thereof), and enables blogs to make their content instantly available to subscribers via syndicated "feeds" that are coded in the XML language, rather than the HTML language that is the standard for Web pages. I haven't used RSS very much, but some people think that is the future of blogging, [as more attention is focused on the content highlighted by blog aggregators]. For the Mac, a popular RSS reader is Net News Wire.

Those who are registered for this Web site can see the URL for the RSS feed below. I'll make it public in a few days, to make sure it functions on a routine basis the way it's supposed to. Once I have made sure it works, I will add separate RSS feeds for the categories of greatest interest -- baseball, politics, Latin America, and war. For the time being, I plan to include only the most recent day's blog entry or entries in my RSS feeds; later on, I may decide to include blog posts from the most recent two or three days.

Say, why don't you REGISTER for this Web site and get access to premium features (some of which are forthcoming)?

blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
