Subscribing to TECHknitting blog

Folks have been writing, asking how to subscribe to TECHknitting blog. Here is a method via Google Reader.

 After you sign into Google you can "subscribe" on Reader by clicking on the "Add a subscription" button in the upper left hand corner, then typing in the name "TECHknitting."  This will take you to the actual subscription page, where you can click on the little button that says "+ subscribe." Then, every time there is a new post, Reader will keep track of that for you.

Another advantage is that if you go to TECHknitting blog on Reader, you can read every post by simply scrolling down and down and down--the further down you scroll, the more of the blog which loads onto the reader, right back to the very first entry. (It's kind of scary to me to see how the illustrations get more primitive the further back you go.) On the other hand, if you want to read TECHknitting in the original formating (comments and all) just click on the post title to be taken there.

One of these days, Google will oblige this old blog template to be updated, and then there will be little buttons to make all this push-button easy.  Until then, however, subscriptions have to be started the old-school manual way.

Per information found in Google Reader, here's the RSS feed address: http://www.blogger.com/feeds/37201040/posts/default That should, theoretically, work in any RSS-enabled application.

Thanks for the addendum, Natalie! I never would have figured this out.

Or, I have a blog and I just 'follow' your blog.

Or I friend you on Ravelry and keep up with you by checking my "Friend's Blogs" tab.

Thanks everyone, for the great ideas. I guess I did know about "friend's blogs" on Ravelry, but not the rest of it.

If you're using Google Reader, you can also go to the Add a Subscription (click on the down arrow next to "Subscriptions" in the left hand bar) and search for TECHknitting. It'll bring up the feed in the results and you can subscribe from there.

And for an easier link for people, here is the actual feed URL: http://techknitting.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
