As you probably noticed, Delo, the biggest daily newspaper in Slovenia has opened its own blogging site much like Blogger.

At first I was impressed since it looks really nice and almost immediately some very nice blogs were created. But today the first Delo.si blog was added to si.blogs and I noticed the blog don't have any kind of feed. Why is that?

I have said that many times, but I will repeat once more. A blog is not a blog without a RSS/Atom feed, trackbacks and comments. It's just a regular web page and it is soooo 20th century.

They did the same mistake as the first Slovenian blogging site VoljaBlok. eDnevnik is so far the only blogging site in the hen that offers standard feeds.

Come on Delo, finish what you started.

It is weird that Delo would have feeds for news but not their blogs. I'm guessing it's being worked on and will be added soon?

I hope that is the case! I wrote them, I hope they answer soon. I'll let you know what they say.

I think they made a fundamental mistake in the way they approached blogs. Feeds are a technical matter that can be easily corrected but their idea of Delo functioning as a blogger.com copy is just plain wrong.

Editors should write blogs, journalists should write blogs, photographers should write blogs and every other employee from DTP to printing department in Delo should write blogs.

But not every weirdo that feels like it ;)

Delo as a brand is simply not and should not be the same as blogger.com

Plus there's really no good reason for anyone to start a personal blog under their domain.


BTW Their feed is not supposed to be public. They implemented it to feed news to wireservices etc. but they never figured the public would find out. It's only visible in firefox anyway. Perhaps their policy will change eventually but a few months ago when I talked to them it sure didn't look that way.


They're doing it all wrong but nobody wanted to hear what I way trying to tell them.

Ne vem, zakaj se ne bi delo.si pozicioniral tudi kot blogišče (kot naprimer blogger.com). Njihov namen je, da gradijo blagovno znamko firme (in časopisa) Delo.

Ta pristop je definitivno korak v pravo smer. Če jim že sajt ni ratal, jim je vsaj blogovska zadeva.

This is news feed, not blogs feed.
