Web design vs weblogging

What’s more fun? Blogging or creating the pages? What’s more fun? Reading RSS feeds or creating them?

I’ve just got around to creating an RSS feed for this page, as you can see from the link on the right. Being somewhat lazy, and also being convinced that something that comes from a database (as my blog does) should be able to auto-generate a suitable RSS feed I did the only decent thing and created an ASP page that will output valid RSS from the database without human intervention. So, every query of the RSS feed gets the latest data!

That leaves me a happy chappy, and free to get on with actually typing stuff in to the blog.

Next feature? Perhaps a ‘comment on this’ form to allow others to respond, that is, providing anyone is reading this stuff.

Finally validated the latest version of the page.
