Heather has very kindly clarified some things about ways to use this site. This was published last summer and is here repeated for those who may have missed it then:
Bonjour to all of Ben’s readers! I recently fixed an issue with the RSS feed from the blog – if you tried to use it, it would not download the posts. As I have an iPad and am using the Blogshelf app to read my favorite blogs, that was kind of a bummer for me. So I offered to fix the feed and now it’s working. The new feed address is http://feeds.feedburner.com/benslavic – just point your feed reader in that direction and they’ll pick it up. You can also click on the “subscribe via RSS” button at the top of the blog and that will add it to your feeds.
So what does this mean? For those of you already familiar with how RSS works, it means you can now add Ben’s blog to your favorite feed program and pick up new posts as they are added. For those of you who have not used a feedreader before, it’s a great way to save time and keep track of everything in one spot. There are many feed reading programs out there, Google has one, and there are also apps for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. Once you add a feed to your reader program, it will check the feeds regularly for new information. Whenever there is something new, it will download the new stuff and let you know that it’s there and ready to read. If you have quite a few different blogs you like to read regularly, it’s a wonderful timesaver – you don’t have to visit all of the different blogs to see which ones have new posts, you just visit your feed reader and see all of the new stuff. It’s kind of like having your own electronic newspaper that only displays the stuff you care about!
