Subscribe Now!

If you check the pop-open menus to the right, you’ll see a new one: Subscribe. Click on that, and it exposes a link that lets you sign up to get an e-mail whenever I post something here. That way you don’t have to surf by here every few days to see what’s going on. You can just wait for a notice to pop up in your inbox.

If you did this on the old site, please register again. If you didn’t, this is your chance to give it a try.

Of course, if you have a newsreader (like , you can subscribe to two RSS feeds at the bottom of the page instead. The first is for the standard posts, but with the second you can subscribe to all the comments posted here too.

For those of you who do subscribe to the e-mail notices, would you rather get the entire post in the e-mail or just a link back to the site? I have it set up to just provide a link now, but I can alter that at will, it seems.

WordPress does rock.

  1. Hi Bill:

    I agree. I use NetNewsWire Lite on the Mac, and it rocks. I just started a few months back, but it’s already transformed how I use the web.

  3. Ha! I love my 12″ iBook, although it’s getting a bit long in the tooth. I’m hoping to upgrade sometime this summer. A new machine with the Tiger version of Mac OS X? Oh, yeah.

  5. NetNewsWire is a great app.

    For what it’s worth, Matt, I wouldn’t subscribe to an email update service if a RSS feed was available, but for the purpose of giving your visitors info, sending them the whole update is best. For the purpose of driving visitors to your site, sending them the link and [if possible] an excerpt of the text will bring to them to your page, and then they may see other things that you’ve posted recently and they missed.

    Are you using some sort of plugin for the mailing functionality, and if so, which one?

  7. I know what you mean, Adam. RSS feeds beat e-mail all hollow. I suppose the only reason to drive people to the site is for them to see the comments. Right now, they get a link and an excerpt from the text.

    I’m using the Subscribe2 plugin to handle the subscriptions. It was a snap to install, and so far it works like a charm.

  9. I added my email address to the subscription list a couple of days ago, and I missed out on the Discordia announcement [mope]. I’ll have to switch to an RSS reader.

  11. Hm. Sorry about that, Steve. Did you get the e-mail though? I just want to make sure the plugin is working. Thanks!
