How do you find out about new AstroBetter posts?

by Kelle on March 23, 2012

I’d like to announce a new way to keep up with AstroBetter: email subscription. If you prefer to get an email straight to your inbox with the full content, there’s a Subscribe by Email link in the right sidebar. This feature has actually been live for quite awhile, but I never really told you about it.

I will also take this opportunity to remind people about the utility of RSS feed readers to keep up with all kinds of content, including astro-ph, journal articles, and blogs. Here’s my post on the topic from the AstroBetter archive: RSS Feeds for Astronomers. The only thing I have to add to that post—which is almost three years old!—is that I highly recommend Reeder as a client for Google Reader. The elegance, simplicity, and consistency of the app across the Mac, iPhone, and iPad platforms make it one of my most frequently used apps.

Since we’re on the topic, how do you read AstroBetter? Google Analytics and FeedBurner Stats give me some idea, but I’d like to hear from you.

How do you primarily find out about new posts on AstroBetter?

I have AstroBetter in my “Top Sites” in Safari, which tells me of a new post, or any other change in the home page. This is a great way to keep track of a (finite) number of blogs/pages if you are not into RSS feeds.

Ironically, I used your suggestion but it’s not on your list! I subscribe to your RSS through Google Reader and read it on my iPad with Reeder.

Great to hear that works for you too! And that would be “Feed Reader Subscription” in the poll. 🙂
