I am so thankful for everyone who reads this blog. I know that many people just pop in an read a post or two, then go on their way. But there are many people who read posts here regularly, and I wanted to take a second to point out a few ways you can keep up with what's happening here at ChangeBarack.blogspot.com.
1. Use a Feed Reader
A feed reader will show any new posts that come up on the site and help you keep track of what you have read or haven't read. This is a good system for a blog like mine where new posts sometimes push older posts off the front page before you get a chance to read them.
Subscribe to the feed by clicking either the feed counter button to the left, or use the pull-down menu labeled "Posts" on the left and pick your preferred feed reader. I recommend using Google Reader, but there are many other great options out there. If you already have a Google account (and if you don't, you should since Google owns the internet), it's easy to check out your blogs and be on your merry way without having to type in different addresses and potentially miss something good.
2. Subscribe to Email Updates
If you are not a tech-savvy person, but you can check email, this is for you! Don't worry about filling up your inbox either. This just sends one email per day regardless of how many new posts there are, and if there are no new posts, then it doesn't send one at all! Pretty cool huh?
Subscribe by entering your email address on the left hand column. The prompts will walk you through the simple process. I just registered my address to make sure it's working, and it took almost.
3. Add as a Bookmark/Favorite
In Firefox, they are called bookmarks and in Internet Explorer they are called favorites. Either way, they're the same thing. A little icon that serves as a direct link to the site. In either browser you can usually find a pull-down menu or a button to save as a bookmark/favorite. And in Firefox, live bookmarks will show you any new posts that have come up since your last visit.
4. Follow me on Twitter
If you're on twitter, follow me! http://twitter.com/advocate4change I almost always tweet when I've posted something new, and twitter makes it easy to interact with one another in real time!
5. Just keep typing in the Link
If for some reason none of those options will work for you, please keep typing in the link and coming in for a visit!
Please tell your friends and twitter followers if you see something you like on this blog! Each post has an email icon to help you email the link to a friend and the Share This button at the bottom of each post will help you share the site in lots of different places on the web!
Interacting with other readers is a lot of fun, and I look forward to getting to know more of you in the future!
