Read your favorite blogs by e-mail

If you’re still not down with RSS feeds, we won’t hold it against you just yet. A free service called RssFwd allows you to subscribe to your favorite blogs (such as this one) and receive updates via e-mail. It’s pretty easy to set up–for example, to get new posts on this blog delivered to your inbox, you’d do the following:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter the web address of the blog:
  3. Enter the e-mail address at which you’d like to receive new posts.
  4. Watch for an e-mail from RssFwd and click the confirmation link.

That’s all there is to it. Note that the e-mail messages do not come from us; replying to them will not get you anywhere. The best way to let us know what you think about a post is to click the link provided in the e-mail and use the blog’s built-in comments form.

Update: I signed up for this service myself to see how it works–messages do come through to e-mail, though not right away. Just so you know.
