I Would be Happy to Send
Living in Comfort and Joy To You Each Week
It’s easy to have this blog sent directly to you as soon as it’s published. New posts go up near the end of the week, at an upredictable hour between Thursday evening and Saturday noon.
I have subscribed to a number of eco and design blogs myself, and they show up on the first page of my Yahoo email account when I log in. All I had to do was put my email address into the sign-up form for those blogs. You can subscribe to my blog by visiting the Feedburner page where this blog is syndicated through RSS (Really Simple Syndication). The process actually is simple.
You can do the same thing with Living in Comfort and Joy, just by clicking this link to go to my Feedburner page where you can sign up.
What’s an RSS Feed?
Feeds are a way for websites large and small to distribute their content well beyond just visitors using browsers. Feeds permit subscription to regular updates. Those updates are delivered automatically via a web portal, news reader, or in some cases good old email. Feeds also make it possible for site content to be packaged into “widgets,” “gadgets,” mobile devices, and other bite-sized technologies. All that tech stuff does the same thing — they make it possible to display blogs, podcasts, news, sports, weather, headlines and whatever, just about anywhere.
Who publishes feeds?
All the big dogs on the web offer content feeds: USATODAY.com, BBC News Headlines, ABCNews, CNET, Yahoo!, Amazon.com (including a podcast!), and many more. Google publishes feeds as part of its services; for example, you can get a feed of new items for any search you make in Google News. Apple, through its iTunes Music Store, offers tens of thousands of audio and video podcasts for download, each of which is powered by a feed.
In addition, hundreds of thousands of bloggers, podcasters, and videobloggers publish feeds to keep themselves better connected to their readers, listeners, admirers, and critics.
The Living in Comfort in Joy weblog has joined this milling mob of self-published authors. I’m hoping that my blog will prove good enough to make readers want to actually read. I’m pretty darn sure that Living in Comfort and Joy is worth the price – it’s free!
