Creating RSS

Creating an RSS feed is not nearly as difficult as it once was.
The easiest way to go about it is to create a blog and they usually generate an RSS feed.

Tumblr is a tool that allows you to generate a blog from a "web journey" and the resultant blog is available as an RSS feed.

XFruits says it can generate an RSS feed from email, but I have not played with this myself.
