Atom XML Site Feed

I'm sure that many of you are now quickly pressing the "Back" button on your browser, desperate to escape this geeky post. But it's actually not that bad. If you now search my sidebar, you'll see a little caption "syndicate this blog" and then a button below it. What this means is that I have added an atom XML feed to my blog. Now, you can see if I've updated without ever seeing my blog! To subscribe, I reccomend downloading RSS Reader, a free feed-reader (both Atom and RSS) for Windows. You can then use it to read not only my blog, but any other feeds from the internet. If you're interested in doing something similar, see this Blogger help article and FeedBurner. For now, goodnight, and godspeed.

Good work.

I myself use Thunderbird, both for my Gmail and as a news reader. I still have to push all of my RSS and Atom feeds onto it, which is something of a hassle. It's totally worth it, though.

As a Firefox user, I've been wondering about Thunderbird. Can you use multiple email accounts with it?

Yep!
