Problems Re-Subscribing?

A friend who dutifully attempted to follow my entreaty in yesterday’s post has emailed me thus: "Thanks. but I must confess when I clicked [the link provided] as directed … I still couldn’t figure out how to subscribe."

One thing that may have been confusing to my friend is that, since he was reading my post on its primary home page rather than on the page provided to RSS subscribers, clicking the link would itself produce no effect, since the point of that link was to make sure that the act of resubscribing was being untaken from the correct starting point. If you want to see what I mean, click here.

Y’see? If you’re not already accessing this page via an RSS feed, nothing will change, because you’re already standing where I need you to stand.

But beyond that curiosity, my friend may be encountering a speed bump that was discussed here back in March, which seemed to be related to platform and browser issues. Specifically, readers who have used Microsoft Explorer to arrive at this blog may encounter resistance if they try to subscribe.

This can be overcome! Or at least, I assume it can, since I’ve received no further complaints since the following two entries were posted.

First read the post from March 24.

Then read the followup from March 27.

If neither of these proves helpful, please let me know. I want my loyal readers to be able to subscribe to my timeless ramblings if they wish to.

P.S. When I’m reading RSS-enabled blogs on my Mac using Safari, there’s a little blue RSS icon at the top of the page (see my illustrations yesterday and today) that will start the subscription ball rolling if you click on it. If you’re a Windows user and you don’t spot such an icon, scroll down the page and look for a sidebar link that reads something along the lines of "Subscribe to this weblog."
