Joyful Homesteading - What's New?

The Homesteading Blog is a mini-journal about all the how-tos on homesteading. Here's some great things it does:

  • Anytime a great new article appears with tips and stories from me or others who are pursuing the homesteading life you have the opportunity to hear it first.
  • You'll learn about any new postings to this site without having to come back every few days. Every new page link will be sent directly to you. How cool is that!
  • But in order to get those postings, you have to sign up for RSS.
  • So what is RSS? It's this great program that works a bit like email, only better.

You don't have to visit everyone's computer every day to see if they have sent you email, right? Instead, it is sent directly to you and stored in a special program in your email account. Then, when you're ready to view your email, you open up your account and read.

RSS works the same way.

You download a reader and if you have gmail or a yahoo email account, you can get RSS for free. Then, whenever you see a website you like, you just click on the RSS link. If you have Google, Yahoo or My MSN, it will add the site to your reader automatically. If not, you will have to paste the link to my homesteading blog to your reader.

Try RSS. You're gonna love it! It's a great way to keep up with friends' blogs and great websites like this one!
