After a day of basically learning XML and RSS formats, blogs (which are starting their first of a few new template facelifts as well) now have RSS feeds! The link is available on the blogs, compliant browsers will recognize the feed (Firefox puts the little icon in the upper right corner), and it's also available on your member profile (more "member" feeds will be available on the profile shortly).
Hopefully everything worked as it should (the feed validates), and this will be one step forward toward keeping track of all your favorite AP blogs (I recommend google reader). I've also imported my blog into my Facebook profile under the "notes" section. So my facebook friends can stay up to date with me.
Note: there are probably still some bugs in this system - I'm working everything out, and I'll work more tomorrow.
