A Weekly Subscription
I'm hoping a switch to FeedBurner will solve my ongoing problems in sending out update notices for my weekly page. While notices are posted on this blog, those who only want to receive updates about my weekly web page should click the link above and follow the directions. After New Years I will slowly phase-out NotifyList, my old subscription provider, trying to migrate addresses from that service to FeedBurner.
