In an effort to boost RSS readers and subscribers it might be beneficial to sometimes release an RSS exclusive post that doesn’t show up on a blogs home page or in regularly scheduled postings. This would basically provide followers with a great reason to subscribe to an RSS feed, especially if they are fans of the blog in question.
