How to Subscribe to Mine Your Own Business

If you’re new to blogs, you may be wondering if there’s an easy way to keep up with "Mine Your Own Business" posts without checking the web site every day.  Yes, there is.  In fact, there are several.

Blogs use something called "RSS Feeds" to let you know when something new has been posted.  To receive one of these feeds, you need something called a blog reader. 

If you scroll down the right side of this page, just below the
"Categories", you’ll see a link that says "Subscribe to my feed."
Click it and you’ll see several choices.  You’ll also see a link that
says, "Learn more about syndication and FeedBurner…"  This link will give you more information.  But, in a nutshell, here’s how it works.

If you plan on following just a few blogs, then your best bet is to have the feeds delivered to your "My Yahoo", "My Google", or "My AOL" page.  Just click on the appropriate icon and "MYOB" will be added.  That’s all there is to it.

If you want to subscribe to a lot of blogs, then you’ll probably want to sign up with one of the "blog aggregators".  Personally, I like Bloglines.  If you haven’t already, go to Bloglines home page to set up an account.  It’s simple and it’s free.  Then come back to our "subscribe" page, click on the "Bloglines icon, and you’re done.

Through Bloglines, you can search for other blogs that interest you, subscribe, and get their feeds on your personal page.  You even have options for categories, if you plan to subscribe to a lot of feeds.

If you scroll down the right side of this page, just below the "Categories", you’ll see a link that says "Subscribe to my feed."  Click it and you’ll see several choices.  You’ll also see a link that says, "Learn more about syndication and FeedBurner…"  This link will give you more information.
