Raise your hand if you still peek at Fashion Planet from time to time? Or daily? Even though the Fashion Planet blogroll has not been updated for ages, many designers & blog readers still go there out of habit. Through iheartsl.com, many people are able to send their posts to Fashion Planet, myself included.
I will admit that it drove me kind of nuts having to repeat my blog posts all the time, and sometimes forgetting to do it altogether. So this morning I had an idea that would solve my problem. I needed to find a syndicated url that was 1) on a domain by itself, 2) not in use & available for registration, and 3) has a rss url that was simple to duplicate. Even though many domains are inactive, they have been snatched up by those annoying domain parking things. But I got lucky, and found one that wasn't!!
So…. I found Saucy. The Saucy link on Fashion Planet met the three criteria I needed to make my idea work. So I registered the domain, http://www.ensemblychallenged.com/, installed WordPress under the /saucy directory, and turned it into my own feed site, that feeds directly into Fashion Planet. I crossed my fingers, waited 10 minutes and viola! I'm back on Fashion Planet.
Saucy will not be a public feed, since I already have too many websites to maintain, but I just wanted to share. I will be feeding my site to Saucy as long as Fashion Planet is still active.
