Many of you out there have a list of favourite blogs that you follow.
I would hope like hell that mine is on the list 🙂
There are many ways to track when new posts are uploaded.
However, did you know that you can also follow me (and almost any blog for that matter) in Outlook?
New posts from the websites and blogs that you follow will appear just as a new email would. I reckon that is pretty cool!
The guide below is for Outlook 2010, but the principles are the same in most current versions of Outlook.
1) Go to your favourite blog site and find their RSS link.
It usually is found by clicking on this symbol on the website:
As an example, let’s see how you would do it on my website, noting that this can be done on almost any blog or website out there. It doesn’t have to be cricket related.
On the DennisDoesCricket.com website, the RSS link is found here:
2) Right click on that symbol and select “Copy Link Address”. Alternatively, left click on the RSS link and copy the page address that opens. In my case, that address is http://dennisdoescricket.com/feed/
3) Open Outlook, and find the “RSS Feeds” link on the left. Right click on it and select “Add a new RSS Feed”
4) When the box opens up, either right click in that box and select “paste”, or type in the RSS address. Then click “Add”
5) Congratulations! You are now subscribed to your favourite blogs and can follow them in Outlook. Outlook will tell you every time a new post appears, and you can read them as you would a new email.
Here is what the RSS feed will look like:
To make your life easier, here are the RSS feeds of some of my favourite cricket blogs. Just copy these addresses into the “Add new RSS feed” as shown in step 3 above.
