Blog Update feed?

I heard someone saying there was a way to subscribe to a blog so that when the blogger updates there blog you will receive an email notifying you of this. That is such a great idea because there are so many blogs I enjoy reading but would rather not check in each day to see updates.

Well I've been seeing these things that say subscribe me________. I'm not sure if this is it or not. So I went to this site: https://www.feedblitz.com/f/f.fbz?Logout and signed up for what I am assuming is what I just described above. If I am misunderstanding this will someone please tell me, because this kind of stuff really confuses me..... If this information is correct then please feel free to add to the subscription.

Hi,
I think you are right on the feeds. There are different feed services availabe, I guess feedblitz is just one of many. I have subscribed to many blogs by just clicking subscribe, but I have found that you need internet explorer 7 to really make it work well. It lists your feeds next to your favs and alerts you when there is new content to any of your subscriptions.
Hope you had a good holiday..

You did the email delivery right, but another option if you have a favorite blog is to have the feed go to your yahoo homepage. I love this. I have all my favorites right on my homepage and I can scroll down and preview the posts by holding my cursor above the post title. You can add these by clicking on the little orange RSS button at the bottom right corner of the screen. I am loving technology like this because it keeps my already overloaded email box emptier, but lets me catch up as I have a minute here and there.

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I love your homeschooling info on here. I started with The Story of the World and quickly got overwhelmed and spent way beyond my homeschool budget to have just a few of the supplimental books and it could not have interested my son less. So, we are going to try switching it up a bit. I will have to watch and see how you like yours at the end of the year.

Have a great weekend!
