It's not a blog without RSS

I'm committed to reading the longer pieces that my friends and colleagues write on the web, when they do, but have been finding that a surprising number of their sites don't have an Atom or RSS feed that I can use with Feedly. I've used Ctrl-U to view source on the sites and it's not just Feedly being dense, there aren't any feeds exposed. Do modern "blog" frameworks no longer have feeds, or no longer link them in the HTML? I know this marks me as someone who came of age in the twentieth century, but I don't think it's a blog if there's no RSS.

Are you a reader that blogs? Will you check that your blog's RSS is turned on and then will you ping me (Twitter or email) to let me know I can subscribe? I will!
