Using Feedblitz to allow people to subscribe with email

I've spoken of the need for Blogs to have rss feeds so people can subscribe but not everyone has an rss feed reader. So how do you allow those people to subscribe. Well FeedBlitz allows them to receive an email of your posts whenever they are added.

Take a look at and to see a feedblitz feed in action go to Arup's blog. See the post below for details.

Partying with Bob Geldoff - Sounds like Arup had a great time

Some people just can't help but name drop especially when you go to a party where all the guests are 'names'.

Mind you with the great idea Arup has, I can't help thinking he will be a name himself sometime soon.

The NeverEnding Story Blog


Check out the Business Club Blog

I spent half an hour with the Business Club on Monday Afternoon and helped them set up the Business Club blog. If you are a business club member, or thinking of being one, this is the blog for you.

I think this will evolve into soemthing pretty special and very useful for all small businesses so take a look here.

Two posts in one night - All about Feedburner

I mentioned Feedburner a few days ago and meant to write a step by step instruction on how to use it. However there is no need as feedburner already have some excellent guides. Take a look at this for example which is the step by step for adding an rss feed to a blogger blog.

By default Blogger does not give you an RSS feed. I would really recommend adding one.

One thing to watch is the link to an rss feed will normally end .xml if it doesn't you've probably done something wrong.


Brian Gould also blogging

Brian from Posh Blinds has also started blogging following on from my talk (you can read his comment on my talk here )

I'm really pleased he has taking my advice and put up a very informative article about his product without being too sales push... so take a look at the PoshBlinds Blog

Great to see Arup Blogging

It's really pleasing to see some of the ideas from my talk taking root amongst Business Club members.

Take a look at Arup's blog. Some very nice content (as you would expect from someone for whom content is a career) and the layout is excellent. Its also an extremely interesting concept so I suggest you head on over and take a look here

Of Atom and RSS

I mentioned in my talk that RSS was a term you will hear a lot about. Particularly with rumoured support in Microsoft Windows Vista. Blogger by default does not use RSS. Instead it uses its own feed format known as Atom. This is very clean and in someways better than RSS but not as widely supported. I would highly recommend adding an RSS feed for your blog. How?

I'll go into more detail in a later post but Feedburner is a good way to set up an RSS feed from any blog

IT Event at Business Focus

As Brian mentioned on Tuesday I'm helping out with hopefully organising an IT Fair as part of Business Focus.

I thought I'd mention this here to see if anyone out there has any particular areas of IT they would like to see highlighted as part of this event.

So use the comment button and let us know.

Tip of the day

Obviously one of the things you may want to do when posting a comment to a Blog is offer a link back to your own site.

Whilst many blog tools make this easy with an enter link button, not all of them do.

So I would like to teach you a very small bit of web (HTML) code which should work in most cases:-
Its pretty simple enter:
<a href="http://yourwebadress"> Description</a>

For my site this would be:
<a href="">Whittaker Moore</a>
