'Low-Carb Mania' Provides Low-Carb Blog Feeds

A couple of weeks ago, my fellow low-carb blogger from "The Divine Low-Carb" blog named PJ, a 41-year old single mom who lives in the Ozarks of Oklahoma, was scouring several of the most popular low-carb blogs asking for their RSS feed.

I noticed she did that at my blog as well as several other low-carb sites I have featured in the past. What was PJ up to? Hmmm... I even received an e-mail from her asking me where my RSS feed was. It has now been added to the side panel of my blog for your convenience if you subscribe to blog feeds.

But it seems my friend PJ was up to something special because all of her efforts to get the RSS feeds of her favorite low-carb web sites are encompassed in a beautifully-packaged new blog called "Low-Carb Mania." As soon as you visit PJ's new site, you'll notice she has listed all of her favorite low-carb blogs in one place (mine's at the top of the list--THANKS, PJ!) which lists the three most recent posts from that blogger.

Besides my blog, PJ lists some others worthy of visiting often, including "Calianna's Low-Carb Cottage," "Kudos For Low-Carb," "Low Carb Lollygagging" and several more that I consider some of the top low-carb blogs online today. I'm sure PJ would LOVE to add more to the list, so e-mail her your suggestions (I can think of Kate Welch's outstanding "The Steaks Are High" blog and Regina Wilshire's legendary "Weight Of The Evidence" blog as two glaring examples of excellent low-carb blogs missing from this list).

Why did PJ create "Low-Carb Mania?" There's a simple explanation.

"I wanted to get all my fave low-carb blogs into an RSS reader that would automatically show me which things had updated. It's getting to be a bit of a long process, going to every one on my list, when half or more of them haven't changed."

Um, I bet you don't have that problem with my blog, PJ! :D I try to update at least ONCE a day because that's the least I can do to give you a reason to come back to the "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog on a daily basis. If I ever stop blogging regularly, then you know it's time to pack it up and call it a day. It's not gonna happen, though, because I'm passionate and excited about sharing low-carb information with my readers.

THANK YOU for creating "Low-Carb Mania," PJ! What a fantastic idea whose time was overdue. Dang, now I wish I had thought of this first. LOL! Just kidding! Be sure to pay a visit to "Low-Carb Mania" and see what's happening in the low-carb blogosphere.

Holy cow! My design isn't finished so I hadn't made it public yet but it sure is now, with the high profile Jimmy featuring it, LOL!

I TRIED to get both those other blogs on there! They are in my faves! But I couldn't find feeds for them that google would accept for some reason. I wrote one blogger but haven't heard back yet. This might be a limitation with google. If so, I might actually make some kind of iFrame and pull in feeds from a dynamic page I can make in one of my non-LC websites. Still a work in progress!

Hope the link here leads to more listings. All the publicity LC can get is a good thing. Thanks Jimmy!
