«Option to Subscribe Via eMail»

Web Feed IconI've added the option to subscribe to my blog via email. If you subscribe, you'll receive an email no more than once a day containing any new posts I've made. I haven't tested it, so I'm not sure exactly what the email will look like. In my opinion, the "Subscribe in a Reader" option is the best way to subscribe.

I think Yahoo has an on-line web feed reader, Google has Google Reader, there are many others online. There are also programs you can install on your computer. I use Google Reader. I'm subscribed to 41 different websites, and all I have to do is check my reader to see if any of those sites have been updated. There's no way I would check most of those sites without a web feed.

About every blog has a feed built in, and many regular websites do as well. Just look for a link that says something like Subscribe, RSS, or XML. Or the universal symbol for a web feed, the image included in this post. Of course, they will be much smaller than the one in this post. In most browsers, if a page has a web feed, you'll see either the orange symbol or "RSS" near the address bar.

EDIT: Look in my sidebar (directly under the search bar) to find the link to subscribe to my blog via email.
