Two Questions For The Experts

Hi guys, I wanted to ask you all 2 questions since you all out there tend to be blogging experts.

1. I am trying to add a link to my email on my sidebar but I cant figure out how to make it a link. It shows the email but does not provide a link. I have tried a all the options on "add an element" but I cant make it work. Any suggestions???

2. I read on someones blog but now I cant figure our who it was but they mentioned that they have a program that informs them when the blogs they read post updates. So, if I post an update and I am on their list, they get an email informing them that I updated my blog. Anyone know what I am talking about?

Anyway, thanks for your expertise!

  1. Can't help with the first. The second one is

  2. Christy,

    no help with the first one either - I have seen it on other blogs & I'd like that too - cause I don't ever check the gmail that comes with the blog.

    As for #2 - I get an update for one blog that I have subscribed to by FFEDBLITZ. It is nice to get the email updates & I would love to subscribe to yours!!

    Good Luck,


  3. I can't help you with #1 either, but I can tell you that I LOVE MY BLOGLINES!!!!!!

  4. Don't know about first one.. but second one I use
    I love it..
    Very simple to use..

  5. Sorry, I can't even figure out how to get a picture to come up when I leave a comment!

  6. Hey...not sure about the first...but we use blogarithm for the second!

  7. For feeds I just use the feeds list on the Outlook Explorer toolbar. If you have the updated one, you just click on the large gold star on the far right. That will display your feeds list. Any that are BOLD (like your's just was for me) has new information.

    To add feeds to your list, go to the blog you want to add, click on tools, click on "feeds discovery" then add whatever shows up. Some say RSS and some say ATOM, it doesn't matter. Then it asks you if you want to subscribe to the feed and you click it.

    Then you aren't adding more stuff to your email. You just open up explorer and click the star.
