Update Alerts

Posted on Thursday 31st May 2007 at 00:00
Last night Pierre L commented that he doesn't use RSS and prefers a system of receiving alerts by email to tell him when the blogs he reads have been updated. This struck me as an ingenious idea, since many people either don't want to use RSS or can't because they are using older software that doesn't support it.

So tonight I've been hard at work building and implementing just such a service, and at last it is finished and ready for use! If you choose to subscribe to the service, you will be contacted by email to inform you immediately that I've updated the blog. Subscription is free and open to anyone, regardless of whether or not you use the existing RSS Feeds.

The emails you receive will look something like this:

Dear Ignorminious,

This email has been sent to you automatically to inform you that Ignorminious has updated his blog.

At 18:59 on 30 May 2007 Ignorminious posted a blog entry called: On Social Networking.
