Use Neuron, get RSS for free

Atom, not RSS - but you get the idea.

Instead of writing your own static site generator, and write code to laboriously generate RSS feeds (which are all useful exercise in learning) - why not use Neuron 1 , and add the following to your, say, blog.md and call it a day?

---
feed:
  count: 5
---

That is all it takes to generate an atom feed, blog.xml, that will aggregate all of your blog posts linked from blog.md. See neuronโ€™s documentation on the Web feeds plugin for details.

On this site, you have three examples: add any of these โ€“ [[Blog]], [[Microblog]], or [[Neuron]] โ€“ to your feed reader, if you want to keep yourself abreast of new content in those zettels. (This website has migrated to Emanote as of June 2021)
