It's not there for a reason. The <link rel="alternate" describes an
alternate version of the page you're on. The Recent Video feed is not an
alternate version of the front page of videoblogging.info and thus it
shouldn't have such a link-element.

The button points to <URL:http://videoblogging.info/ping/?mode=__rss> and
that's the URL of the feed. Is the feed not working for you or?
