RSS Feed - Where to put META declaration

Should you put the RSS feed declaration on every page on your site?

I am going to add an RSS feed for my sites articles. Should the feed declaration in the META tags just go on the relevant pages (in the articles section for example), or should there be a declaration on every page?

Any advice appreciated.

No reason not to put it in every page - a visitor who is using Firefox or IE7 - could potentially visit any page, notice the feed, and add it.

Also, be sure you're using a descriptive name in the LINK tag - "My site RSS Feed", especially if you have more than one feed. A lot of sites just use "RSS", which isn't very informative.
