@jamesmichie JSON Feed is interesting, and perhaps easy. I recall spending way too long messing about with xml & rss in the past. If JSON feeds get a wide uptake it could open things up for folk like myself to play with in simple ways. Probably needs to get into WordPress core rather than a plugin for wider adoption.

@jamesmichie here is a post that shows how, I've not tested, needs a bit of command line to get it going: https://carlchenet.com/get-your-rss-feeds-to-mastodon-with-the-feed2toot-bot/
figured out how to follow for on other instances of mastodon, after reading @dajbelshaw 's post.
Might give tooting another shot.
