Author Metadata

Do posts automatically get an Author tag? I know you can specify Author in metadata, but I wondered if I should include that for each post or only the ones not written by me.

Related, at least in my RSS reader app, regardless of whether I include Author in the metadata, it's getting parsed as the title of the post. See here for an example where I've highlighted where the Author of the post would typically be displayed.

Blot doesn't do anything with author metadata by default. You can use it in your template and in your feed, though! You'll need to fork your template and make some changes to line 16 of feed.rss:

    <dc:creator><![CDATA[ {{{metadata.author}}} ]]></dc:creator>
