By now you should have noticed that most of the times i like doing things myself, without any pre-made tools like WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, etc. Not that i have anything against them. I just like to know how to do them, the best way is doing them myself.
Today i'm going to show you how i made this site's RSS feed. I had never done one before, and it is surprisingly easy to do. I'm not going to give you the introduction to what RSS is, because probably Wikipedia is the best way to go for it, so let's just say that for me, it is a nice standardized xml format which will let your "feed" to be read by content aggregators.
I will use PHP to build the XML, and MySQL to get the content. Just so you know, we'll make an XML similar to this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:content="http://purl.org...
