Some dutch do understand and do read the international weblog scene.
Can you imagine the biggest* weblogs in Holland do NOT have a RSS feed?
Tonie, a journalism student busy weblogging, but no rss feed. Even no time to answer e-mail about this issue.
Retecool, person always giving comments about people/websites trying to get them pissed.
Gaby407, a person using different sources for his weblog but hardly ever mentions his sources..
Smoel, a webmagazine with different people weblogging
I have a number of regular visitors. Some do comment here, some never. A weblog does not show his popularity by counting comments. Of course: do your own thing, but RSS/XML is and will be the future. Spread your words. Let people get your headlines!
Polskaya wrote at his website (in dutch) perfect what RSS/XML is meant for:
Met RSS stel je de inhoud van bv je blog open voor andere media. Zij kunnen jou inhoud dan implementeren in hun ‘ding’ (zie bv http://www.punkey.com/nieuws ). Heel interessant om jou inhoud zonder moeite en up-to-date beschikbaar te maken voor al diegen die iets met jouw informatie kunnen aanvangen. Als je dat wil tenminste :)
