Hey Pawel, few thoughts here: 1. Why did you put a link to your own blog instead of directly using the GitHub page, the article in your blog is only saying a few words but has prominent leads collecting popup. 2. Did you know that Ruby has its own RSS parser: http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.1.0/libdoc/rss/rdoc/RSS.html ? 3. There are a bunch of other RSS-parsing gems like https://github.com/cardmagic/simple-rss , https://github.com/feedjira/feedjira and many more. 4. It is intenionally named after WordPress but why, trying to gain more popularity or just being new kid on the block’s funky name?

Hello Kaloyan!

  1. I put the link to the blog instead of the link to the repo because since I’m the author I think it’s ok. I’m not selling any stuff and this popup on my blog is for collecting e-mails so I can send information about the free Ruby stuff. What’s more, I will be creating a free course using this gem so entering this link will be kind of follow-up to this
  2. Of course, I know
  3. I know this too
  4. Yes, it’s intentionally named after WordPress just to bold the idea behind this gem - I didn’t create this gem to gain popularity. It’s just a basic stuff, maybe someone will find it helpful. I created it because I wanted to learn how to create gems

Any technical feedback is also welcome
