Was wondering why my RSS feed hasn't been updating the past couple of weeks, but didn't have time to find out why. Turns out that RSSpect has shut down. I don't care for Google code on my page, so does anyone else have suggestions for free sites that will create feeds for publishers easily?

Not really, but, ironically supplied by Google:

https://www.google.com/search?q=rss+feed+generator

Maybe there's something good in there?

This is what I used when teaching myself how RSS works : D : http://www.downes.ca/post/56

I too was caught out when RSSpect went down. I wasn't able to find any good free sites (I tried Webrss.com but I could never get the feed to work. Maybe it would work for you), but I did find some free downloadable software that allows you to create your own feeds that's not too hard to use:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/rss-builder/

It's a bit buggy but I got it to work. There are others out there, too, but that's the one I settled on.

Let's all have a quiet moment of respect for RSSpect, which I've used together with Feedburner for my older site.

...

welp, quiet moment over
