Howdy all –

One theme that I’m starting to notice is that it’s pretty hard to keep up with all of the posts/comments on this site.  Far be it from me to tell you how to do stuff, but if you’re not already familiar with “feed readers”, it might be a good time to check them out.  That way, any time there is a new post / comment, you can get it from the reader, as opposed to slogging through the main site.  There are many of them out there (my favorite of the moment is Google Reader), but you can check out others as you see fit.

If you look to the bottom right sidebar of this site, you’ll see a couple of items under “Meta” – one is “Entries RSS” and the other is “Comments RSS”.  RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and converts the feeds to a format that is read by these readers.  If you want to do it manually, the put one or both of those links into your reader of choice and you’ll start getting updates quickly. 

However, if you want to do it the easy way,  I have placed a link up at the top right that you can click on – Subscribe in a Reader (with the funny orange logo next to it).  This will allow you to pick the reader you want to use.  I have selected “FeedBurner” for this, as I’m pretty confident with their infrastructure.  They’re now owned by Google, so they’re going to be around for awhile ;)

For those of you concerned with privacy issues, please note that you can be as anonymous as you wish using any of these methods…but FeedBurner will require you to create an account.  I won’t see (nor do I care to see) any of the information associated with your account.  The only information that I will see is the number of subscribers – no names, etc.  Give it a try – I think you’ll find it a much easier way to keep up with the activity here.  I’m also working on a few things to enhance our little community…but more of that down the road.  This is Kris’ venture, so I need her permission before I do any of it :)

If you have any questions – feel free to drop me a note at guybehind <at> gmail <dot> com

And now, back to your regularly scheduled blogging…
