You can find this information scattered all over the Web, but I want to make a note of where to find your WordPress XML Site Map and RSS feed.
By the way, the Site Map and RSS feed URLs are just for sites hosted on WordPress.com and not self-hosted WordPress sites, but the WebMaster Tools information is applicable to everyone.
