A few technical changes to the blog (and an RSS favor)
I wanted to draw your attention to the new “Tools” section of the right-hand sidebar to the blog. You’ll see an RSS Feed button and Follow Me button and a search box. We’ve reconfigured the RSS Feed for the blog with some new options, like the full blog post appearing in the feed, rather than just an excerpt that requires you to go the site to finish reading the post. Data reporting to me has been improved as well. If you’ve already subscribed, I’d appreciate your grabbing the new feed. If you haven’t subscribed, please do!
The Follow Me button takes you to the my page on Twitter, in case you’d like to follow me there.
We’ve also moved the search box (to search the blog) into the Tools section. I love that it turns orange when you mouse over it!
If you’re looking at an individual post (rather than the landing page for the blog), you’ll also see a ShareThis button, which will allow you to share the post using StumbleUpon, Digg, Technorati, Facebook, del.icio.us or a host of other services. You can also use ShareThis to easily post a link to that post to your blog or Twitter. And there’s a Send/Email button that allows you to email the link easily as well. I encourage you to use share any post you find helpful! And, of course, I love comments.
Thanks very much to my great web designer and tech guru, Nora Brown for her help with all this.
