What is a Feed URL?  
Just as there is an "address" (URL) for your web site, most blogs have a URL to a feed file. This file provides the content of your blog stripped of its formatting. This raw information can be read and reformatted by We101 to present your latest blog posts on We101. It is required by We101.

How can I find out what my Feed URL is?
If your blog displays a link to "Syndicate," "RSS," "Feed," or "Atom," that is your feed. Copy the URL for that link and paste in the the Add Your Blog form.

Blogger
If you have a blog on Blogger, your feed is probably:

 http://www.blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default 

where [blogname] is the name of your blog.

WordPress -- hosted
If you have a blog hosted by WordPress, your feed is probably:

 http://your-username.wordpress.com/feed

where [your-username] is your user name. (More info on hosted WordPress feeds is available here.)

WordPress -- at your domain name
If you have a WordPress blog at your domain, your feed is probably:

 http://example.com/feed/

where [example.com] is the URL of your blog. (More info on WordPress feeds is available here .)

TypePad
If you have a blog on TypePad, your feed is probably:

 http://example.typepad.com/weblog_folder_name/index.rdf

modify [example] and [weblog_folder_name] as appropriate.

For other blog platforms, please check your blog for a link to "Syndicate," "RSS," "Feed," or "Atom." If you see such a link, that is your feed. Copy the URL for that link and paste in the the Add Your Blog form.

Unable to find Feed URL
If you are unable to find the Feed URL for your blog feed, please consult the available help from your blog host or software vendor. 

If you think your blog does not have a  feed or you cannot find it, you may chose to have a feed generated by a free third-party service such as Feedburner.

Feed rejected by We101
If you have a feed URL but it is being rejected by We101 as invalid, try getting some feedback from Feed Validator, which will test your feed and report specific errors. Please consult with your blog host or software help for solutions to an invalid feed.

If you have tested your feed, are certain that you are submitting a valid feed and We101 is not accepting it, there could be a temporary network error.

If the problem persists, please send the feed you are attempting to submit to curator@we101.com and we will try to solve the problem.
