Can I see an RSS feed about my watches instead of an email?

Looking at https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/watch-pages-spaces-and-blogs-724765353.html and right next to it is https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/subscribe-to-rss-feeds-within-confluence-724765360.html and yet I can't seem to figure out how to generate an RSS feed of my watched pages?

Seems like https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-5649 would help with this.

Hi Ben,

There's no way to build a feed that just returns pages you watch, and no RSS add-ons in the Atlassian Marketplace that'll allow you to do this.

If you look at the hints section of their RSS Feed Builder page, it suggests using personal labels for pages you want to "watch".

However, Atlassian deprecated the personal labels in version 4.1, released 5 years ago, so I'm not sure how up to date that page is..... But the principle is still the same - if there are specific pages you want to watch then the best way is to add a label to them and build your feed against that label. 

Thanks. I guess continuing to use the deprecated feature will pressure them to come up with a viable alternative, eh?

I wonder if I can put a personal label on a page like https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloud/what-s-new-686863216.html? It doesn't seem like it.
