I ran across a web based tool called PonyFish (RSS Feed Builder)—seems to be generating quite a buzz as a solution for sites without feeds:

This is a blog and I'm limited to the same limitations everyone else is. The tags and signature are created manually for every post. See A Technorati Tag Bookmarklet for WordPress and Users for specifics. As for your feeds, I'm not sure where you went wrong, but any category can have its own individual feeds, and that's what I assume you want. I gather you have your podcasts in their own "podcast" category or some such similar. So put your blog posts in a different category and offer that feed to your users. See Customizing RSS Feed Links for WordPress and Blogs for details on creating category feeds.

I recently wanted to add a separate blog feed to my podcast site, but couldn't figure out how to do it exclusive of the podcast feed. When I set up my podcast site, I used Feedburner. Every category was routed through the Feedburner feed. I wanted to add another feed that would just contain blog posts. Since I blog daily, I didn't want to blast everyone who was subscribed to the podcast. I wanted my blog feed to be separate from my podcast feed. However, I could not figure out how to exclude the blog feed from the Feedburner podcast feed. I tried using the Category Visibility plugin, but it wouldn't let me subscribe to anything excluded from the podcast feed. The user forums were also not helpful. Any category-specific feeds are automatically included in the site feed. Do you know how to do this? On another note, I'm curious about something on your site. Is your site a site or a custom installation on your own web host ( It seems like you have some customizations (e.g., related articles, tag warrior, custom signature) that I wasn't aware were available from the version.

More importantly, why aren't there more georss feeds? You'd think every weather and geological site with info that needs constant updating would be jumping all over georss. How am I supposed to get data to make a cool Yahoo map.

But will those RSS workarounds give you full content RSS feeds? There's nothing more annoying, and this blog falls into the annoying category, of partial/abstract RSS feeds that still require you to spawn multiple windows and tabs in a browser to see the content. How does one get a full RSS feed using those tools. Now that would be an awesome "fix"!
