Create RSS feeds for sites without RSS

Lots of folks -- especially blog-readers and media -- are using RSS feeds to stay on top of their favorite websites. But what if your website doesn't automatically produce RSS?

There's a great solution over at AutomateExcel.com. They've got an Excel spreadsheet in which you keep your ten latest headlines -- and with one click, it produces a valid RSS file. Upload to your server -- and you're up and running.

Easy stuff -- slightly manual, but all the hard stuff is automated. (Does Excel scare you? Really, this solution is easy enough for you!)

We've often called Excel the all-purpose swiss army web design tool. This proves it!
