I just updated my recent reading page. I keep short notes about each book I read on that page to help me remember. Some books are less memorable than others these days, at least for me. At the same time, I noticed that the associated RSS feed page was not showing the dates correctly. I write my own XML file in a text editor, and I had improperly left off the year portion of the date field.
It was an oversight. In other RSS feed files, I was doing it correctly, but all during 2018, I had been forgetting to add that “2018” data.
Fortunately, the page worked in Firefox without the year component. I hope it worked in other people’s feed readers. I don’t know.
Was that an oversight, too?

THIS IS A TEST.
For the record, on the free version of WordPress.com blogging, webmentions appear to not function. There seem to be plugins available, but one must have an upgraded (paid) account on WordPress.com to install plugins.
For now, it seems this is not going to work.
Denoting a pulse in which a double beat is detectable for each beat of the heart.
Early 19th century: from Greek dikrotos ‘beating twice’ + -ic.
