While I am at it what does the XML button do?

As I am sooo new to blogging and RSS feeding etc, I am wondering:

when I am invited to post and the XML button is on offer, does that somehow register that post with the gremlins that generate the RSS feed (and do I really think I know what I am talking about, flinging these terms and acronyms around?!)

and does that then mean that the blog becomes 'public' - dare one say 'property'?

XML and RSS gremlins...

Dianne, you're right about RSS and the gremlins! :o)

If you have a news reader (I use Bloglines - you can subscribe to the updates wherever you see the XML button (xml is just the language used to create the RSS). I use this instead of checking actual online newspapers and stuff now, and keep up with what's going on in education, etc.

I've subscribed to the ALARPM public forum, so I can see what's new here on the site.

...blogs are 'public' anyway, regardless of the rss - unless here you've restricted your post to members only (only I'm not sure if that's operating at present - Gorm or Ross might be able to clarify?)!

James Farmer talks about incorporated subversion and the nature of blogging, if you want to get a bit more philosophical about it all!

Ciao, Marg
