Getting Updates

February 8, 2007

I got a question asking how to use RSS to receive a notification when new information is posted on the blog. It turns out there are a boatload of ways to do that. I’ve added links to handle a few of them in the “Feeds” section at the bottom of the right hand column. Here’s a quick description:

  1. RSS Feed: If your browser supports RSS, just click on the RSS Feed link and you’ll be in business. Some browsers also automatically detect feeds and let you sign up (look for this icon in the browser’s toolbar: ).
  2. My Yahoo or Google: If you have a personalized My Yahoo or Google page, there are links for each.
  3. Other aggregators: You can directly use the feed link, (https://rlhamilton.wordpress.com/feed) in a feed aggregator like Bloglines.
  4. FeedBurner: If you’re using a pure RSS feed, the RSS link is the best way to go, but if you prefer FeedBurner for some reason, I have the following RSS feed there:
    http://feeds.feedburner.com/ManagingTechnicalDocumentation.
  5. Technorati: If you use Technorati, there’s a link to add this blog to your Technorati favorites.
  6. Email Updates: If you’d like email updates, there’s a link that will bring up a form for you to enter your email address to get an automatic update when something is posted (you should get no more than one update/day, and then only on days when there’s a change).

I hope that helps; if you have any trouble subscribing for updates, post a comment or send me email.
