Last time I checked Writely I noticed they provide feeds all over the place.
You can now track changes to:
Active Documents list
This is a great thing for me, as some of my blog posts contain lists of things such as here.
I’m always adding new additions to this post (that I may not blog about)…problem is that people don’t know about these new additions.
One choice is that the blog post itself may have its own RSS feed…all my posts seem to have a comments feed, but not a feed for the post itself.
Does anyone know blog posts that have feeds?
Another choice is to make a wiki so I can make a list on a wiki page that has its own RSS feed.
I could also use a bookmark manager that is good for lists such as H2o Playlist, Wink, JetEye, MemeFlow (although each block or list doesn’t have it’s own hyperlink), or the traditional one’s like del.icio.us, but these don’t have that published look (although del.icio.is does have a HTML view, but this shows just the last 15 entries)
Now I can re-publish those seminal blog posts in Writely, and list these Writely links on the sidebar of my blog along with the RSS feed for each of my Writely links.
Now anytime I add content to one of my Writely documents people will know as they will be subscribed to the RSS feed of that document.
[ADDED: now that I’m using OPML Manager, this seems an even better way to keep lists (people can actually import these lists and do what they want with them…portable lists that are open to manipulation).
The only thing missing at the moment is that you can’t subscribe to an RSS feed of my OPML outline or OPML file…if this happens, then this may be my alternative to Writely]
[ADDED: Great write up from the Intranet Journal comparing 3 new web-based word processors, the only thing lacking in Writely seems to be a comments feature]
