Topic tags/keywords: rss projects

One feature that I would really like is the ability to syndicate any and all of my content. I am specifically looking for a way to syndicate my projects so that I can automatically have them picked up by feedburner, FriendFeed and Twitter. Linking through multiple social networks allows me to get wider visibility for my projects, which also brings in a wider audience for LumberJocks.

Right now I have setup a Feed43.com account to scrape my project page and generate a feed . I am able then to syndicate this feed using feedburner so that I can monitor the feed to see how well it is being followed. Finally I pull the feed into FriendFeed so that my projects automatically show up on my FriendFeed listing, which automatically publishes the info to my twitter account.

Just by creating a single entry on Lumberjocks, I can instantly have my projects become visible to thousands of people who are following me on various social networking sites.

Joe, projects by author RSS is live. Check your projects page and see an RSS button below the projects.

Martin, Thanks for the quick response. Works much better than the screen scraping.
