Earlier I mentioned running across a plugin that did both categories and rss. Turns out that the RSS generated is for the categories which I am not using a the moment and I am not sure if I want to add it either. Besides Disqus comes with it's own feed for each comment thread so it's going to be very confusing to the visitor to figure out which RSS feed to subscribe to. The simple solution is to just place a rss template file at the root level. Being lazy; I copied and pasted from this template.
Having done all this it was time to flip the switch - but on the photo blog. Yes, folks, all this time I have been concentrating on it because it's so much simpler and doesn't even have half the posts in this blog. The photo above is what it used to look like.
