This blog is going to turn into a blog about blogging if I’m not careful.
I’ve been gathering topics and storing them in my live.com email, hoping to keep up posting once a day on weekdays. I saw a link to a site from twitter that offered “blog topic suggestions” but these were like ice breakers you’d use when trapped in an elevator for six hours with a 90 year old grandmother. Stuff like “The craziest thing I ever did…” or “My favorite sandwich is…” (FYI, to answer both questions, I once used a pepperoni and provalone to make a sailboat, but that’s for another day)
So I looked at the page today and saw my RSS feed links. Okay, cool. Adding RSS feeds to Outlook is very easy. Since our internet explorer is locked down at work, I can’t add homepage tabs to see my site, so I decided to hook it up in Outlook. For those that don’t know,
Click on the RSS feed icon on a page you like (say this one).
In Outlook, go to Tools, Account Settings, and the RSS Feeds tab.
Click on the “New…” button in the top left, and add the html of the RSS.
Pretty simple. There should be a new mail folder for your RSS feeds and Time Traveling Jackalope will be right there.
I briefly read about syndication, but since that’s going to take some reading, I once again emailed the link to my live.com email to store as a topic for another day…
Hey here’s a fat Wolverine! Gotta end with something exciting. I learned that from Jack Kirby.
