Follow Me, Please

When I started blogging, w-a-a-a-y back in 2004, pretty much the only way to read blog content was to visit the web site. Today, however, things have evolved. People can read this material in any number of different ways.

In fact, of the more than 300 people who read this every day, there are now five different avenues of getting this material.  With that in mind, I'd like to take a moment to recap each of them.

Some folks prefer to have blog posts delivered to their email inbox every morning.  If this sounds like something that you would prefer, simply enter your email address into the "receive email alerts" box at the right, click the "subscribe" button and my friends at FeedBlitz will send my posts to you via email every morning for free.  More than 30 other individuals follow the Warrendale (Detroit) Blog this way every day.

For avid Facebook users, I invite you to join the 87 other people who follow the Warrendale (Detroit) Blog on Networked Blogs. If you're interested, simply visit this blog's Facebook page and click the "follow this blog" hyperlink. My posts will then appear in your Facebook news feed.

My personal favorite is Google Reader, which enables you to follow any number of blogs and then read all of them all on one consolidated page, instead of having to visit each site individually. There are currently 20 Google users who follow this site via Google Reader. If you're interested in doing this, please click Google's "follow" button to the right of this post.

If you prefer to use a different RSS reader besides Google reader, simply your preference from the "Subscribe to RSS feed" pull-down menu at the right.  One can then add this to a Netvibes, Newsgator or Yahoo feed.

Of course, if you prefer to keep things simple, you can always simply bookmark this site in your web browser of choice and visit my site periodically. This is the original method of doing things. Quite a few people still do it this way.

I also want to remind everyone that, in addition to the Warrendale (Detroit) Blog, I also author my personal blog, which is called The Voices in Frank's Head.  It features a lot of truly random content.

Regardless of how you find your way to the Warrendale (Detroit) Blog, I thank you for visiting and taking a look at my content.

Nice post-I might steal it for my blog, modifying it of course. I don't have an email sign up yet. Looking into it. It was good seeing you the other day. Happy Holidays!

I definitely recommend the email sign-up. It only takes a few minutes and is fairly easy to do. I use Feed Blitz, but there are a couple of other services out there.

Oh, but please remember: if you do steal this then you should also talk about my obsession with Kiera Knightley. Or maybe not.

Happy holidays!

Love & laughter,
