Get my blog via email, or another RSS reader

If you’ve followed tech news over the past few days, you’ve read that Google Reader is planned for shut-down on July 1, 2013.  For me, this is a bummer, because I get a lot of my news through Google reader.  I will have to find an alternative (and there are many – the Google Reader alternative lists have already started).


If you are reading this through Google Reader, I have a small request for you.  In fact, I’m even providing options. 🙂


1. If you’d still like to subscribe to my blog via RSS, you can do so by migrating to a new feed reader (hit up one of those links above for a few ideas).  Then, you can either export out all of your Google Reader feeds into an OPML file (directions here), or you can add feeds one at a time.  To add mine, be sure to use


2. Another way is to subscribe via email.  If you’re reading this via RSS (oh the irony), head on over to the actual page and look on the right for “Get this blog via email”.  Enter your email address and respond to the confirmation, and you’re off to the races.  I won’t sell, rent, fold, spindle, or mutilate your email address.  I don’t like spam, and I’m not about to become a hypocrite.  As each new post goes live, you’ll get an email with the post contained, as well as a link to it.


So that’s it.  Pretty easy stuff to do, and it’s all a one-time deal.  Let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks for reading.  I appreciate your time.
