...but no RSS feed for same, unfortunately. The otherwise excellent Poetry Daily suffers from the same lack. Neither site even has an email option (Bloglines will let you convert email subscriptions to RSS feeds).

Free clue for publishers: I don't have much spare time; if you want any of it, you will have to come to me. I have more than 250 blogs in my RSS feed aggregator, and I deliberately only check a subset, about 100, of those regularly. I simply don't have time to do otherwise. There is no way I am going to keep a set of links to sites without RSS feeds and check in on those sites -- not even now and then, let alone regularly. It's increasingly likely that, if your site has no RSS feed, I won't even know it exists; and it's certain that, even if I find out about it, I'll forget again in no time. You may think that forcing page loads is a way to increase advertising views, but if I never visit your page (because, having no feed, it has dropped out of my line of cyber-sight), then you get NO views at all.
