Improvements at thefallencleric.com
I have just made it a bit easier for you to find my blog. You can now leave “wordpress” out of the address, and just type thefallencleric.com into your browser.
Now for a word about subscribing. About 98% of my readers are simply clicking on the link I post to this blog after I write each new post. While there is nothing wrong with this, it is kind of the roundabout way of reading a blog. The easiest way to do it is to simply have each post automatically download into Internet Explorer or Firefox as it becomes available. In Internet Explorer, do this by clicking on RSS – Posts in the Subscribe box at the top right of this page. At the top of the page, you will see a message like this:
You are viewing a feed that contains frequently updated content. When you subscribe to a feed, it is added to the Common Feed List. Updated information from the feed is automatically downloaded to your computer and can be viewed in Internet Explorer and other programs. Learn more about feeds. Subscribe to this feed
Click on the Subscribe to this feed link in your browser. A dialog box will come up. Click the Add to Favorites Bar checkbox, and click on the Subscribe button. That’s it. From now on, every time I finish a new post, Internet Explorer will notify you. You’ll see The Fallen Cleric on your toolbar at the top of your browser, and when you mouse over it, the most recent posts will pop up underneath, newest to oldest, top to bottom. Just click on the one you want to read.
In Firefox, simply click on the orange RSS symbol on the right side of your address bar. A new page will come up. Make sure it says, “Subscribe to this feed using Live Bookmarks.” Click Subscribe Now. That’s it. Now you will be able to view posts in your browser as the blog is updated.
The advantage to subscribing is that you don’t have to a) remember the address of the blog and keep typing it into your browser; b) look for the link on Facebook. This can cut Facebook out of the picture entirely, as you’ll no longer be dependent on Facebook to know when a new post goes up. Simply open your browser and if there’s anything new, you’ll see it by mousing over The Fallen Cleric icon on your browser toolbar.
And there is your tech training for today!
