E-mail subscriptions now available

Just a quick post to say that both easierbuntu and Far Beyond the Edge of Reason now offer subscription via e-mail. I realised that unfortunately a lot of people haven't really woken up to how useful and powerful RSS feeds are, and don't know how to use them, so offering subscription via e-mail as well is a good idea. Also, easierbuntu in particular might be better suited to that, because it's useful to have a copy of any posts available in your inbox at any time, whereas if you subscribe to the feed you don't usually have the old posts available. It'll be interesting to see if subscriber numbers for either blog increase as a result.

But, seriously people, if you haven't discovered the convenience of RSS, do yourselves a favour and sign up for Google Reader, and start subscribing to the feeds instead of checking the same websites all the time. You really can get through a tremendous amount of stuff in a short period of time. It's just about the best way to keep tabs on what's going on! I'm subscribed to a hell of a lot of feeds, and it means I can stay informed on a range of subjects.
