I have just added a new cool feature to the blog. You will see a new menu item on the top left corner of the screen, “Subscriptions”. You will also see that the link bar under each post, in addition to the old “Permalink”, “Comments”, etc., now shows a new “Subscribe” option.
Subscriptions let you enter your email, select the posts or post categories you are interested in, and voilà. You will receive an automatic email notification each time that something interesting happens.
If you are interested in following a particular post, click on “Subscribe” on the link bar under it and enter your email. From that moment on, you will receive an email notification each time the post changes or a comment is added to it.
You may be interested in any post that is published within a particular category. Categories are those wide topics listed on the left-hand side of the screen, and each post is assigned to one of them. You can see the category a post belongs to at the end of the link bar at the bottom of the post, just after “Subscribe”. If you want to subscribe to a complete category, you need to visit the Manage Subscriptions page by clicking the “Subscriptions” menu item on the home page. From the Manage Subscriptions page you can subscribe to categories and also review and change your current subscriptions (to categories and individual posts). The first time you visit this page you won’t see any subscriptions, so you need to click on “Subscribe to a New Category”, pick your favourite category, enter your email, and you’re done. Of course, you can subscribe to as many categories and posts as you want.
I hope you find this useful. I think it may complement the RSS feed in a nice manner. If you have any doubts about how to use this new feature, please leave a comment to this post. Many thanks.
