WP Updates RSS Plugin Weekend Sale
***Going on from my post (and video) about using an RSS feed to get first notification about new blog posts, and so getting that important first comment and a backlink whenever a new post is made…
Well there’s some other aspects to this.
I KNOW that RSS doesn’t seem very exciting and can be a source of confusion and annoyance – I’ve been there. But I’ve really turned onto it this last year or so and I’ve been using it for all sorts of things. I’m only talking here about reading feeds not creating them.
But, I’ve been thinking about RSS related products that would be useful to you and me, and I have a few ideas I’ve been kicking around for creating useful feeds.
The first one I released last year and is an excellent plugin that you install on all your blogs and on all your clients blogs too (if you have them).
This is how it works.
Imagine the situation if like me you have more than one WordPress blog, and I BET you do.
Unless you log into them all each day, it’s really hard to keep on top of which ones have plugins or themes that need updating. Not all of them will have the same plugins active, and certainly not all of them will have the same themes.
There are both plugins and themes out there that sometimes have security issues which allow hackers to log in and take control of your site. So it’s important that when there’s an update, you know about it right away and you can apply it to keep your blog secure.
It gets even more important when you also have clients blogs that you look after.
It’s bad enough when your own sites get hacked, but the last thing you want is a client calling you to say their site is up the Swannee. Imagine the embarrassment.
The WP Updates RSS plugin solves that problem.
It monitors your blog and creates a private feed that you can add to Feed Notifier. When an update is needed, it updates the feed, you get a little pop-up on your desktop and you can go make the update.
You know what? I think I’ve just made Feed Notifier a must-have tool for any WordPress user.
Starting today at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST) I’m running a weekend sale for the WP Updates RSS plugin at just $10 for the first 25 buyers. The price will go up after the first 25 sales and the sale will close on Monday.
I’ll drop you a line when the sale starts.
P.S. There’s another RSS based plugin coming next week which I hope will blow your socks off.
