Subscribing is a snap!

Ol' Myrt here has received emails from newbies who are unsure of how to subscribe to DearMYRTLE's (free) Genealogy Blog. Several had received a forwarded copy of a blog post, and are simply overwhelmed by the prospect of "RSS" (really simple syndication) technology.

If you know of a friend in this position, you might forward these directions to him.

RSS technology allows you to receive in one place numerous posts from various blogs and websites throughout the Internet. This is an improvement over having to go to each website to see if there is something new to read or explore. RSS feeds save you time and frustration over visiting a site each day that hasn't been updated for a week.

When Ol' Myrt here publishes a new posting at the DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Blog site, the RSS technology you selected will send you a copy at the place you specify.
Methods to receive the RSS FEED (or blog entry) are varied, including your personalized pages at Google, My Yahoo, Bloglines, Newsgator, and most email software programs.

The easiest way to enter a subscription to DearMYRTLE's Blog, is to visit and type your email address box on the right navigation bar. This will permit FeedBlitz to send you the updates on an immediate or daily basis directly to your email box.

More experienced online genealogists may click the "Posts" button, and select their blog reading preference.
Clicking "All Comments" allows one to subscribe using those alternate method to all the feedback postings by my DearREADERS.

You may click to add this blog to your Technorati Favorites.
And if Facebook is your thing, you may click to join the blog via Facebook.

Thanks for your continued support.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
Your friend in genealogy.
