So how many of you use the Notes From the Fatosphere rss feed to keep up with all the fatty awesomeness out there? I know I do, and I know it draws me a lot of readers who stumble across my blog while reading others out there. If you’ve never noticed Notes From the Fatosphere before, you can see it on this page, it’s the list of links and opening lines on the left there at the bottom of the info I have here on my blog.
Now for the past four years it has been administered by the lovely Bri of Fat Lot of Good, and she has done a great job of doing so, but is ready to hang up her NFtF hat for awhile so that someone else can have a go of driving the mother-ship! So she has asked me to post the piece below calling for a new administrator for the service.
So if you think you can help, please contact Bri via the email address below – it would be a shame to see this fantastic tool disappear.
I have been the administrator of the Notes From The Fatosphere rss feed for around 4 years now and while continuing as a Fat Activist I feel it is time to pass the feed on to someone else.
At the moment the feed is administered via a Google account and a public Google Reader feed. However Google Reader will no longer be available after July 1 so another way of administrating the feed will need to be used.
The task of administrating the feed is fairly simple. You add blogs you believe fit with the ideology of the Notes feed (ie fat oriented) and you remove any blogs you think no longer fit the ideology. Occasionally a blog will “fall off” the feed and you need to re-add it -generally the blog’s author will email you and let you know their posts aren’t showing up in the feed.
Moving the Feed to another reader site (or the like) will involve finding a suitable place to host the feed and then subscribing to each of the blogs currently on the Google Reader feed. This will take a while but once it is done you only have to add new blogs or remove existing ones.
If anyone is interested in taking on the admin of the Notes feed please email me at scarlettheartt @ gmail.com (without the spaces) and we can chat.
Yours in Fat,
