I recently discovered, looking around my site’s stats, that many people are subscribed to the category feed “General.” This is a big mistake on my part, because I don’t use that category and so those people are not getting any updates from my blog! The problem is that this is the default category to which posts go when I forget to add a category. I’ve now renamed the category “unfiled (oops!)” to make this clearer!
The second problem is probably that readers need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of my sidebar to find the RSS feed for my site, so they subscribe to the first one they find. I’ll try to fix this soon. After WordPress completes their theme competition I will pick a new theme and upgrade my site to version 1.5. That’s when I’ll redo my sidebar and some other things that need redoing.
