Reviving the RSS feed

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

After a winter hiatus, I’m ready to bring the RSS feed back to life (that’s https://www.painscience.com/rss.xml). I’ve been very active on Twitter (@PainSci), and have gotten into a nice groove there, living the microblogging dream.

I think it’s been great working within Twitter’s new 240-character limit. Although maligned by many, to me it has felt like enough room for a lot more creativity and substance, while still being quite concise. In fact, that kind of post-length was the original inspiration for this here “microblog”: the posts were always supposed to be “like Tweets, but a bit beefier,” with the odd larger one. Unfortunately, I have never come close to that ratio. So now, after months of practicing with Twitter’s new format, I’m now going to try one more time.

For a while, I’m going to exploit this winter’s Twitter highlights for posts here, so if you follow me there you’re probably going to see some repeats!

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
