T-rev's Blog

28 2008-01-07 12:23 atom feed

my blog now has an atom feed so you can subscribe to automatically receive new blog postings.

to subscribe to blog feeds, you need a reader such as google reader. the point of a reader is that it allows you to read multiple blogs all in a single location. the main advantage is that it saves you the time and effort of having to visit each blog one at a time just to see whether they've been updated since you last visited.

another advantage is that--since it's so much faster and easier to check them all at once--it's feasible to check them all more frequently, thus allowing you to find new posts much sooner after they are posted.

and yet another advantage is that (once you've subscribed to the feeds) you don't have to remember any links, e.g. "blog.t-rev.net". with an online reader such as google's, i can sit down at any computer connected to the internet, log in, and check all the blogs to which i'm subscribed. otherwise i would need bookmarks or favorites to remember the locations of them all for me.

update 2008-08-14: the address of my blog's feed is changing. you can subscibe to the new feed now at http://blog.t-rev.net/atom.php or http://blog.t-rev.net/xml-rss2.php

Well, I haven't been blogging much. Really, I never felt that I had all THAT much to blog. A few philosophical and/or practical ramblings, and some "Tips from Trevor". And when I started the blog, I had been doing some simple php programming and thought that coding my own blogging software would be good learning practice. But I haven't gotten around to that yet, so I'm still just manually coding the html. It's really doesn't take all that much more time than clicking a "submit" button, not such that it can be blamed for the recent dearth of posts.

Anyway, I decided to get back in the game for a while. I have not only a list of topics and tips I wanted to write on (old list, I wonder if I'll even be able to decypher it) but some of them already written up, just not posted (and perhaps not editted. I'm an edit-er.)

Also, maybe, in addition (not edition) to the functions listed above, this blog can serve as a "Trevor's Newsletter" of sorts too. In that category, I'd like to announce that my first child, an as-yet un-named daughter, is due to exit Laura's womb circa the first week of February 2008. Oh, by the way, Laura and I got engaged 27.5 months ago, and we wed(ded?) 3 months later. A lot can happen when you don't blog for a few years.
