Keeping you in the loop

The email subscription form we introduced at Wilton Diaries a couple weeks ago has really taken off. In other words, we've got three subscribers, but the "cool" factor is way up there.

When you subscribe via email, you will get a message when the Blog gets updated. To subscribe, simply enter your email address and click the "Subscribe" button. A form will then pop-up asking you to verify that you are an acutal person and not an aggregator. You simply type the letters that show in the box and click the buttons you are instructed to. You will then be sent an email message with a URL that you must click on to finish your subscription. This last part is important as you don't want to go through all that work and not get the feed!

If that all sounds too complicated, feel free to continue checking the So What Co-operative every day.

I still love Google Reader. automatically checks your subscriptions and shows you new ones. One stop shopping for feeds.

Hm... What's wrong with standard RSS feeds? Why to invent the bicycle?

nothing wrong with RSS. In fact, we have links to the major RSS readers on the left. Email is just another option you can use to get the coveted So What Co-operative...

I was just about to write that I wonder who uses email notifications for updates these days... but I figured I do - I have Oracle-L coming on my gmail account and I'm not thinking to switch to RSS. :)
