Any way to make separate feeds for different categories on your blog?

 11:31 pm on Oct 27, 2005 (gmt 0)

My blog has categories about topics that are pretty different from each other. I could see how someone might want to subscribe with bloglines (for example) to one category but have no interest in other categories on the blog. It seems it would be cool to be able to offer separate feeds for the different categories as well as one for all of them. Has anyone ever seen this done before?

That's not uncommon. I see plenty of sites doing this. Blog software can usually generate these for you. You just limit the output to one or more categories and you have your custom feed.

Sorry I didn't see your reply until now - I thought I had the notification thing set, but I guess not!

I use worpress and I don't remember seeing that option but I will look around more.

Change the category number as necessary and you're all set

Thanks superbird! Someone else just told me this just two days ago too!
