Looking for a Little Blogger Help Please :)

Ok - it's time to add an RSS feed and tune up this otherwise fa-bulous blog. I must say, though I've gotten the basics down, I'm a better cook than bloganista, at least as far as the technical aspects go.

Would anyone like to lend me a hand? I'll trade cash (though my budget is tiny) or cookies -- you pick :)

Uh, You've already got one and I already subscribe to it :-)

The link to the actual feed is: http://frederickfoodie.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

Not to get all stupid and everything, but how does this work? I see the orange "subscribe" icon on so many blogs, but I haven't been able to figure out how to add it. Is that unnecessary? Are you a blog-God who just somehow knows all this stuff? Dagnabit -- should I be doing something to make it easy (and obvious!) for folks like, uh, me? btw- you rock! Thanks for helping!

Most browsers (Such as Firefox or Internet Explorer 7) can detect the RSS feed and provide a subscribe link automatically.

If you want a link on your page, try adding an HTML block with the following code:
<a href="http://frederickfoodie.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss"><img src="http://www.google.com/images/feed-icon.gif"/></a> <a href="http://frederickfoodie.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss">Site Feed</a>

I'm just a web developer, not a blogger, so I'm not good at making this stuff easy.

Yep, you've got an orange wavy rss logo on your blog's homepage. Pretty much all Blogger and WordPress blogs have this automatically. And I subscribe to your blog too. I use Google Reader to keep up with all my subscriptions, including yours. :-)

Hi Christine.. I've left a comment before.
I'm a foodie, married to a foodie, moving to Frederick soon. I've been watching your blog for what I am looking for in Frederick. We're not on the ground yet, we've still got all the drudgery of moving before us.. but it will be some time before my business takes off, and we will be actively exploring the foodie community during this time.
If you would like for me to contribute my explorations in writing, perhaps this will help you find a "fresh start" in your approach. How can you "show someone around" like me? Tell me what's good, what's local, what's seasonal! I followed your coffee post very closely. Yes, I'm an addict. No, no one short of the Italians is going to make me happy. No, I will not go to Fourbux. I don't own stock. No point in it. I would rather support locals.
We've been in Europe, specifically Germany, for almost 6 years now. We love country French, Greek, Tex-Mex, Middle Eastern, some German and Czech, Asian and probably anything else you could name... we try it all in our kitchen.
Check out my blog http://tex-pat.blogspot.com/ I am also a natural, local and wild foods harvester and fan. I'm not sure what our connectivity is going to be at first, but feel free to check out my blog and contact me privately.

Thanks, and let me know if I can help!
