Blog Notes

Google Reader

A number of you use Google Reader to visit and read the blog through the RSS feed, which allows you to subscribe to the site using a “reader.” Unfortunately Google Reader is going away at the end of this month. But don’t fret – there are other reader options, which include Feedly (which allows you to migrate your data and feeds easily), Newsfire, Blog Lovin’ (thanks, deb), and The Old Reader (thanks, commenters.) If you’re on an iPad or other tablet or mobile device, Flipboard is pretty nifty, too.

Another option is to have blog posts/entries e-mailed to you, which you can do by filling out the form at the bottom of this post in that gray box that says “Never Miss a Post.” Your e-mail address is never shared from there and it’s only used to send you blog posts, which you can cancel at any time. But why the heck would you want to? ; )

How to Use the Comment Feed

A number of you have asked me about adding a Comment RSS feed to the site, so you can keep in touch with the comment and responses. We’re in the process of adding one at the end of each post, but if you’re using Firefox or Safari, each already has a built-in way to subscribe to the comment feed of the site.

  • In Firefox, in the URL bar, where the name of the site appears, there is a square orange icon on the right (see above). Click on it, and there is a drop-down menu for both subscribing to the RSS feed for the site and for the comment feed. If you hover your cursor over it, then click on it where it says, “Subscribe to this page…” the drop-down menu will tell you which one it is.
  • In Safari, there is a gray box that says RSS in the URL field, where the name of the site appears. If you click on that gray box, a drop-down box will appear with two feeds: one for the blog itself and the other for comments.
  • For those of you who use Explorer, there are directions at the Windows site.

    We’ve also added a Recent Comments widget in the right sidebar so you can zoom to a comment or response that might interest you. Since I jump into the comments often, recent or in the archives, it’s now easier to see what people are talking about, near and far.

    Facebook

    As many of you know who were following me on Facebook, I switched my page to a Fan page, not because I wanted to gonflĂ© my p’tit ego, but because of limits imposed by the anonymous people who refuse to show their faces or respond to service issues over at Facebook. On that page, I post links to sites and information that I find funny, bizarre, or are a bit more skewed than stuff I present on the blog. Fans….I mean, folks are also welcome to post links and sites of interest there as well.

    Consequently, there’s always interesting dialogues going on over there, which I jump into from time-to-time, so you’re welcome to come along.

    For the switch, I was unable to transfer my “Friends” from my old Facebook page over to the new page, but the good news is that I don’t need to approve anyone; you can just head over there and join up yourself!

    I’ve also set up Fan pages for my two recent books where I, and readers, post links to recipes, photos, and articles that relate to The Sweet Life in Paris and ice cream-making for The Perfect Scoop.

    Like a lot of you, I’m having fun on Twitter. It’s a way to send out thoughts and see what’s up with others.
