Subscribe to "Connecting the Blog"

March 14, 2008 | Posted in Blog Admin | By

Welcome to Connecting the Blog! To celebrate the new look, and to make sure that you do not miss out on the latest news and happenings with Canberra Quilters, we suggest that you “subscribe” to the blog. What does this mean?! Well, rather than manually checking to see if there are any new items, you can be notified of updates to this blog in one of two ways.

Firstly, you can subscribe to the RSS feed using a “feed reader” or an aggregator such as Google Reader or Bloglines. This service checks your selected blogs regularly for new content, downloads any updates that it finds and delivers it directly to your web browser or desktop. To view RSS feeds, you will need an account and RSS reading program. To initiate this process (it’s easy to do!), click on the icon below:


Alternatively, you can choose to receive new postings to this blog via e-mail. Just enter your e-mail address in the box below and follow the prompts. No special accounts or logins are required!

Either subscription method will save you precious time (so you can get back to quilting!) but keep you informed. Why not give it a try ?! (You can always unsubscribe too.)
