The power of plain text


If there is a hard way to do something, I'll do it by default.

A few days ago I discovered that my blog wouldn't feed because I had created almost all of my posts in Microsoft Word and then copied and pasted them into my Blog. Disaster! In order to get the feed to work, I have had to systematically go through each blog entry and remove all of the extra coding that MS Word generates.

The good news is that the feed now works! Any site that displays the 'feed' symbol allows you to create a live bookmark - that means that when the author makes a new entry, you get automatically notified. The power of this is incredible - how many sites have you been trying to follow, but then missed something new because you haven't been to visit for a while? Well, with site feeds you don't have to miss anything again.

Now that's what I call communication.

I am notified of changes in those blogs that ask for it but where have you hidden your feed symbol?.. Have discovered there are many other blogging networks out there that can do more for education, than this one. Have you checked up on us in Technorati? You will have looked at Sandaig, I imagine.
Old people need less sleep, by the way!

The symbol is just underneath my profile on the right of the screen - but Safari and Firefox both display it in at the end of the address bar as well - just click on it and a live bookmark is created.
