How To Subscribe

There are a few ways to follow The Wife of a Dairyman.  I've briefly described the methods below.

Subscribe by Follow:

Just click 'follow' in the right hand column and updated content from my site will then be sent to your reader (see below if you don't know what a 'reader' is).

Subscribe By RSS (reader):
Just below the comment section at the bottom of the page, click on 'posts' with the rss icon in front of it.  Then daily posts from The Wife of a Dairyman will be delivered to your feeder.  An RSS feeder keeps updated with the most recent content of a blog site you're following.
RSS is an easy way to keep up with updates from your favorite sites. Some of you may use bookmarks but the problem with using bookmarks is that you have to physically visit each site in order to check for updates which in turn can mean missing out on sites that update frequently, losing track with too many bookmarks, or seeing the same information on sites that update less often.


I won’t go in to too much detail about RSS but it’s basically a subscription.   When my site updates, you’ll see it in your RSS Reader or via email, depending on which method you choose.

Which RSS READER to use?
There are tons of rss readers out there but I recommend Google Reader, Bloglines, or even My Yahoo. I use Google Reader and find that it’s very user friendly.

When you subscribe to a blog (or any site that has RSS available) using Google Reader, you will see new, unread updates in bold. This makes it very easy to visually see what updates you need to read and it’s why I recommend this one.


Subscribe by EMAIL
Maybe RSS Readers aren’t convenient; that’s okay because you can get updates delivered straight to your Inbox!

Subscribe to The Wife of a Dairyman by email.  That way you won't miss a thing!  Just go to the 'subscribe by email' box located in the right hand column and enter your email address.  You will then receive an email with a link included that you will need to click on to verify your subscription.  It's that easy!  You will then receive an email when I update my site.

All of these readers and subscriptions are free to use for your convenience! Pin It
