Pinging Your News Aggregators

By on

I had a little mini hissy-fit the other day about Full as a Goog. Well, Aaron Lynch just posted a comment about how to ping the Goog to keep your feeds up to date. So just to review, here are some very useful links that you can BOOKMARK and call easily to update your feed aggregation:

Full As A Goog:

javascript:(new Image()).src = 'http://www.fullasagoog.com/googimporter.cfm?id=XXX; void(0);

Feed Squirrel:

javascript:(new Image()).src = 'http://www.feed-squirrel.com/ping/HTTPPing.cfm?ID=XXX; void(0);

... where XXX is your feed ID on their site. Freakin' sweeet. Watch out world - you are getting Ben in REAL TIME now!

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
