I plan to add a new category for my blog called 'Journal', where I plan to write about the day-to-day boring things which happen to me, apart from the usual 'high-brow' & funstuff content of my blog which is almost all non-personal.
I've got a decent amount of readers, and I doubt most of them would like to read about what happens with my personal life (because it is so boring!), but I would still like to write about and record it on my blog, but give them an option to ignore it.
I'm quite clear on how I'm going to do it:
1. I shall use this plugin (exact opposite of sticky post) to manually ensure that the posts in the 'Journal' category aren't visible on the main page (Of course, I could edit the loop to exclude the category, that would be an alternative solution).
2. I shall create a new top-level page, which will appear in the menu, and redirectify it to category/journal. Thus people would have to click the journal page link to view the posts in the journal category (I might have a special category-archive page, which lists full posts - not excerpts), but wouldn't be able to view them on the main page
My only worry is, I want the 'journal' posts not appearing in my regular RSS feeds (all of them) - Is there a plugin which allows you to exclude certain categories from your RSS Feeds.
If there is, then that is all I need. Please do tell me if there exists such a plugin.
If there isn't I would appreciate ideas on how to implement this.
