Reclaiming RSS

Aral Balkan wrote recently about reclaiming RSS. He talks about rebooting feed discovery, as the browsers are abandoning it. There is a simple discovery mechanism for RSS feeds, a meta tag you can put into the HTML head section that tells anyone who cares where your feed is.
My site has one of these, of course — this is what it looks like:

Balkan says (and I agree) it can’t hurt to also link in the visible part of your page to your RSS feed, as I do here. I am thinking about doing that for my blog. There are links to my feeds in the About tab, but maybe I should make it more visible.
Actually there is a link to the RSS feed for this blog at the bottom of every page, along with a link to my Twitter, Facebook, GitHub and LinkedIn accounts.
