Reaction to my new "splintered" RSS feed has been, well, splintered. Some people like it, some don't. It is easy for me to have two feeds, one with aggregated posts, one without:
Splintered feed - separate items for separate posts.
Aggregatedfeed - one item for all posts for a day.
But it is not easy to communicate that I have two feeds. I can't really have two icons, and there is a thing called RSS autodiscovery wherein you have a
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="/posts/./rss.xml"> in your pages, but you can't have two of them. Even explaining the difference is hard! So, what to do...
Here's what I'm going to do, for now. I am going to have two feeds, and I am going to ask you which one to make the default. The other feed will be available as a link somewhere, for those smart enough to find it (and nerdy enough to care). So, what do you think?
