Yes, I still hear that question a lot. Yesterday, I got an email from Tricia asking me if I would email her when I update my blog, because the whole RSS thing is too complicated. When I explained (see below), she was delighted and is now done with the whole email thing. Totally 1990s.
This blog has one of the fastest-growing RSS feed lists I know of, but it’s still a scary-low percentage of my readership. With your help, we can fix that.
EXPLAINED: RSS is just a little peep, a signal, a ping that comes from a favorite blog or site, telling your computer that it has been updated. If you have an RSS reader (and they’re free and easy, and two of the easiest live on the web so you don’t even have to install anything), whenever a blog is updated, it shows up in your reader and you can catch up on the news. If there’s nothing new, it doesn’t show up and you don’t have to waste time surfing around.
GETTING IT: All you have to do to subscribe to this blog is ONE of the following:
a. Look down the left side of this blog until you see the little MyYahoo logo. Click on that and you’ll be taken to Yahoo where you can add this blog to your MyYahoo page (or add a MyYahoo page if you don’t have one yet.)
b. click on this icon:
c. Copy the text in red below into your RSS reader.
d. Easiest of all, just click the link below:
Link: Seth’s Blog – powered by FeedBurner.
EVERYWHERE: RSS is just about everywhere you want it to be. So add other RSS feeds on stuff you care about. And if you want a downloadable reader, just go to google and search on "RSS reader" and the name of your computer OS. You’ll find a bunch.
That’s it. You’re done.
Free, easy, permanent until you undo it and it’ll save you time, tire wear and help you avoid male pattern baldness.
