How can I tell who is accessing and using my RSS feed? I did a Google search and was surprised to find a site syndicating the feed. Is there any easy way to monitor this?

It is possible to evaluate your web logs and tell how many people are viewing your feed, this however is somewhat misleading, as aggregator could easily syndicate your feed on their site, which could bring additional exposure that may not be tracked by your logs (depending on how the feed is displayed).
There are a number of services that can help you track feed syndication but ultimately I've not yet seen something that is 100% accurate.
If you are interested in checking to see who might be syndicating your feed you can check websites like Feedster http://www.feedster.com and search on keywords - you might find someone displaying your feed on their domain.
