Allow others to syndicate your Blog?
This will enable the RSS feed link on your Blog.

Is this option enabled?

In my blog under My Blog Links
This is one of the links, Syndicate my Blog (RSS)
On the BC RSS page BC Blogs are not listed.

Edit #2
Do blogs at BC have Trackback URL's
so that pings can be sent? Or do we just have the blog url to ping?

These options, if not currently enabled, would certainly entice more members to use the blogs.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I agree jg.

And whilst browsing around I came across these blog related items.

"About Communiblog
"Communiblog is a listing of blog postings from other sites. If you have TrackBack enable software, you can add yours by pinging this URL..."

"Send TrackBack pings even if your blogging tool doesn't do TrackBack. Javascript must be enabled in your browser. Feedback welcome in the weblog post."

"Wizbang Standalone Trackback Pinger"
"This form can be used to send a trackback pings to any blog that accepts Trackbacks. You do not need to have a Trackback system on your blog to send pings. After submitting the form the results will be displayed on a separate screen. See below for an explanation of the success and failure codes. You can post comments or questions here."

"Send a TrackBack ping

This form can be used to send a trackback ping to any weblog that accepts Trackbacks. You do not need to have a Trackback system installed on your site to send a Trackback ping. Should work with: Moveable Type, MT Standalone Trackback, b2, and pMachine 2.3"

" Trackback wizard -"
This trackback ping constructor allows you to create a trackback ping, i.e. notify a blog that you are referencing a certain blog post from your own blog."

I am not sure if any of these linked ping options will help.
And I do not quite understand pinging and trackbacks completely yet.
But I would like to. Which brings me to my initial questions.

And BTW if anyone is interested in creating thier own Bleeping Computer blog,
or just perusing around those already up.
Here is the link: :thumbsup: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...automodule=blog

Edit:I found the trackback URL for my blog.

Unfortunately there are currently no provisions for pings..so you will need to manually ping your blogs. I see, though, that you found the trackback url :thumbsup:
