WP_ModerationRSS

I like to monitor my comments by RSS. That keeps all the fun blog related stuff in the feed reader and leaves my email for important stuff.

I thought converting this text into RSS might provide a nice way to read books a bit at a time. Since I just got the fancy new sherrillmix.com domain name I thought I could practice a little php and make something useful for myself and possibly for others. So if you’ve never read The Origin of Species and want to have an educational RSS feed please visit Darwin du Jour.
