Your RSS feed is important because it lets your readers stay up to date on your latest content. These days, most people are experiencing content fatigue.
Too much content + not enough time = burnout.
You may have loyal followers. They may love everything you publish. But they may miss it, or get too tired to search for it, because their online time is occupied with so many other interesting things.
Making your RSS feed easy for your readers to find is critical. Once you know how to find it, you can add it to all your bio pages and outlets.
