Crazy RSS Thought

Should we offer an RSS feed for every single author?

Net result would be almost 7,000 RSS feeds one for each author. Purpose would be so that you could be notified whenever a new article is posted in real-time by your favorite authors.

Your thoughts?

Great idea, seriously. I’m a super fan of personal branding and this is a great way to help authors spread their expertise and create a loyal following in a similar way to having a blog (a good combination really!).

Unless you had a script for every newsfeeder out there that will add all 7000+ RSS feeds in an automated way, then I would NEVER sign up. If I like an author’s work, I would be more likely searching for RSS feeds at his/her own blog or other search engines.

It would be nice to have an RSS feed that you can attach a search engine query though.
Same feed but you can add any amount of times, maybe by author, or by topic or other keywords…. Just like the google alerts I think, if that makes sense.
