Oops, can't find a feed

Call me old school, but I still use RSS. Sure, I use Twitter and other social media to get my news, too, but I still like to geek out in my newsreader and track my favorite sites and authors. It's part of my funnel for this site and The Changelog.

Despite what you've heard, the death knell of RSS was a bit premature. You must believe in RSS, too, because many of you have some fantastic sites and you put the Subscribe or RSS button really large right there in the sidebar. This means that you hope someone will take the time to actually subscribe, right?

Then why do I keep seeing this from my add-to-reader bookmarklet?

oops

Do a favor for eager would be subscribers (like me) and link to your syndication feed in the <head> of your website:

<link href='https://feeds.feedburner.com/wynn' rel='alternate' type='application/atom+xml'>

With just a little effort browsers (and their human users) will pick up on your feed and reduce the subscription process to a single click.

Thanks in advance.
