    1. Is my RSS FEED broken? Its says broken next to the icon

    2. http://pettelle.com/ .It's all way down on the bottom

    3. I read to get more people to one's blog, a person should create a RSS feed for EACH category. Is that accurate?

    4. Any other suggestions?

    1. Your feed is fine. It's correctly linked to via the feed icon at the far right of your menu bar. I'm not sure what's up with the feed link at the bottom of your sidebar. It's just linking to your blog. I'd recommend removing it since you've already linked to your feed in the menu bar. This is the correct feed URL:

    http://pettelle.com/feed/

    3. Not necessarily true. Having feeds for each category does allow people to subscribe to only the posts they want to read (for example, I could subscribe to only your posts about cats), but it wouldn't draw more people to your blog. Also, WordPress automatically provides feeds for every category. For example, here's the feed for your cat category:

    http://pettelle.com/category/cats/feed/

    There are two ways that I know of.

    The free way: Use Feedburner.

    The $30 way: Use Mint with the Bird Feeder pepper and this plugin.
