There's only a handful of you who have subscribed so far via the new Google Group box in my sidebar. I wonder if any of you few are getting the damn notifications? If you are, let me know. Some of you know how uninformative it can be on the Internet... I am whistling lame tunes and twiddling thumbs even as I inveigle for more feedback!


  1. I just went to check out the google group for this blog. See this for example.

    I like your blog format and its template better than email alerts or a web forum - more efficient for me.

    Okay, I gave feedback! You can stop twiddling your thumbs! :)

  2. I do other things with my thumbs, but we won't talk about that!

    Meanwhile, thanks!

  3. I've gotten really behind on blogging addons, but since you brought up the email alert issue, I discovered one I liked which is with feedburner.

    To test it, I subscribed a test address then edited and re-edited some new postings. One I edited about 10 times! (it was about a friend's dog site and she was editing her site on the fly to, lol). Then I edited several much older posts.

    The next morning, I only got one alert for the newest post (good, that makes me not look as crazy as I actually am!). The older posts (from a year or more ago) I edited by adding links and maps, I didn't change their links/dates/urls, so I didn't get notified of them as a new post. Great! I like that. If the updates had been important enough, then a separate posting could be made. So this works for me.

    If one doesn't like feedburner, then of course it's not an option but I thought I'd let you know since it's all your fault that I started thinking about email alerts, why not. :)

    I like almost everything else google labs cooks up. But will use the feedburner tool for email alerts.


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
