Subscribe

Most of you probably know already how you subscribe to a blog like this, in order to be informed if anything new happens here.

This way you don’t have to come here repeatedly and leave again disappointed if there is nothing new.

There are RSS readers of all different flavors around. I use Thunderbird for that task because I use that anyways for my email and all the articles are delivered just as another set of emails.

So here is what I do to subscribe to a blog like this one here.

To subscribe to the articles you copy this link

and paste it into your RSS reader. In Thunderbird you select “News & Blogs” in the left sidebar and then click on “Manage Subscriptions” in the right pane. Click Add and follow the prompts.

You can also subscribe to the comments so that you can actually keep up with comments that are made regarding the posts. You treat it the same way as the posts, just use as the feed address

And after I had written all this I found the following which will make it very easy to add the post feed and the commnent feed to all those blog readers out there.
