This is going to be a
quickie. As I wrote a few weeks ago, one of our regular readers asked
if there is a way to be notified when we put up a new piece.
I said then, we attempt to have a new masterpiece up every day at
midnight, Eastern time. People being human and the Blogger software
being occasionally possessed by demons, we are sometimes late. But if
you check in after midnight you should see our one and only entry for
the day. (On rare occasions more than one entry has appeared in the
same day, but that means one of us - usually me - has lost another fight
Here is another choice: Use a feed
reader, alias a news aggregator.. With a free feed reader you identify
blogs you like and the program gives you a list of entries that you
haven't looked at yet. Here is a compilation of some feed readers.
use Feedly. The first illustration shows some of the blogs I follow.
The numbers indicate that there are X many entries I haven't yet read.
second illustration shows my Feedly page for the SleuthSayers blog.
Pretty intuitive to use. (Much more so than Blogger, believe me.)
A third suggestion: Are there any other blogs you check regularly? Some of them have a blogroll, a list of their favorite blogs, with the most recent etnries showing. This illustration is from my website Little Big Crimes.
As I said last time, if anyone has a different suggestion, let us know.
