I found the animated RSS feed icon you see on the right on this blog here. The idea is that the animation will attract a visitor’s attention to your blog feed but I think it is distracting and annoying. So I came up with my own superior animated RSS feed picture.
My icon uses slow animation and fade effects which I think makes it less distracting. You can see it on the left side of this paragraph.
My icon is available in a variety of colours like blue, red, green, pink etc. You can add it to your WordPress powered blog using a free plugin.
To install the plugin login to your WordPress admin area and choose Plugins -> Add New and then click on the Upload link. Then upload the zip file and activate the plugin.
You’ll be able to add the plugin to your site by going to Appearance -> Widgets and dragging and dropping the Animated Feed Icon widget from the Available Widgets area onto a sidebar.
Note: Hotlinking the image from this site won’t work.
