Added RSS Feed to the site

I went ahead and added a single RSS feed to my site.  I ended up using the RSS Toolkit that can be found on Dmitryr's blog.  It was very easy to get the tool kit to publish RSS.  I need to bounce the RSS XML format against the 2.0 specifications to be sure I am emitting decent RSS. 

I had one problem with the control that comes with the tool kit.  I attempted to create multiple channels based on the Blog Catagories that I have defined in case someone would want to subscribe to only a specific catagory.  However when I placed this control in a repeater whenever a post back occurs I get an error stating this "is not a valid virtual path".  I suspect it has something to do with the control when it is trying to append the ChannelName to the query string.  For now I just removed the subcatagory RSS feeds.
