It’s good to see that, of the twenty or so sites I was interested in, around half now have their own official feeds. Toothpaste for Dinner had an official feed for a while, which Drew later decided to take down (“I checked the stats and it looks like there are only about 4000 subscribers to this feed.”). It’s a shame — I miss the cartoons, but not quite enough to go back to my circa-2003 habits and check the website daily.
As official feeds have sprung up I’ve been using permanent HTTP redirects to move subscribers over. A good aggregator should deal with this transparently (although there are, incidentally, a lot of ones that don’t). Aside from the GUID mismatch between the scraped and official feeds causing entries to appear again, it should be a seamless experience.
