A few technical changes to the blog (and an RSS favor)

4 December 2008 | Comments [0] »

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 unsubscribing from your current feed and resubscribing with the new link. If you haven’t subscribed, please do!

Somehow I felt a little too old for it (which turned out to be ridiculous).
