another house-cleaning post

John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing brings up an interesting point: we're not all on the same level of understanding when it comes to technology.

Sometimes, even when people know what blogs are and can wrap their heads around what an RSS feed is (Mom), they still haven't made it part of their daily lifestyle. With that in mind, a while back I installed that clever little button on the right (an idea that came to me from Ryan) that allows you to subscribe to my blog via email. In fact, you can have Blogarithm update you on several feeds at once, if you're savvy. (Note: if you're savvy, get a feeder. Geez!)

So, to sum up: visit often, and stay in touch any way you like. Your terms. (Grandma, just click the botton on the right and enter your email address)

Yes, my Grandma surfs. Has for almost a decade.

Great point man. I've just started getting the hang of this whole RSS thing. I can imagine how many people out there that are still yet to jump on board.

Until then, an e-mail update field is just dandy.

go one step further and organise all your RSS feeds, to-do lists, Gmail, Flickr accounts and other Web 2.0 applications like Writely.com using www.netvibes.com

Trust me on this one...

Do any of the feeders also allow you to view the comments? To me those are frequently as or more entertaining than the posts themselves.

Rob: Good point. Anyone reading this that ISN'T using netvibes.com as their homepage should switch today.

Mack: Generally, most feeders just give you the first snippet of the post, enough to entice you to click through to the actual site. Some smart guys, (like Rob) even code in a bit of imbedded text: ie. || This is just a teaser... click on the post heading for the full enchilada! ||

The good news is that when you click the header of a post, it brings you to that post's unique url, where the comments are usually visible.
