New feeds, and icons galore

FeedburnerGetReligion finally has decided to rely on the user-friendly RSS services at FeedBurner. Please consider deleting any previously established RSS feed for GetReligion and replacing it with our new FeedBurner subscriptions for full posts or excerpts. On another tech matter, alert readers of GetReligion will notice that we have added a string of colorful icons at the bottom of each post. These icons allow readers to save individual posts to several social bookmarks websites, including blinklist, digg, del.icio.us, Feed Me Links, Furl, newsvine, reddit, Technorati and Yahoo's MyWeb.

I have omitted a reference to the tutorials site My-Tuts -- because it is inaccessible today and I don't expect many GetReligion posts to end up there. But the My-Tuts icon is available if that spins the propeller on your cap. We have accepted software writer Apostolos Dountsis' Social Bookmarks Bar plugin as is, and see no reason to limit our readers' choices.

Actually, though, there is one choice on which I'll ask that our readers show some restraint. Our comments section gives readers the ability to use some basic HTML features, including boldfacing and italics or the snarky irony-laced strikethrough. Some readers have chosen to boldface every word of their comments. That's not the purpose, folks. A highlight works best when you use it sparingly.

We always welcome suggestions from GetReligion's readers for other improvements to our WordPress publishing platform.
