Readers can now follow my blog via e-mail. The automated system sends a link to new posts right to your inbox. Here are the subscriptions that are available with details about what they cover:
Rob J. Quinn’s Blog: Subscribers will get an e-mail for every post. This will include posts with any news about my books or future writing efforts. Going forward, I don’t expect to post much outside of my “Rants,” and I haven’t re-posted tweets or Facebook posts on the blog in quite a while. So, I don’t think subscribers would get more than one or two e-mails a week, but no guarantees. (If the Phillies have another World Series run some day, blog tweeting may return!) Subscribe here.
Rob’s Rants: These posts will cover multiple topics, almost always in various subject areas, in rapid-fire fashion. I’ll write about anything that catches my attention, including TV, movies, general news, disability topics, even politics, and more. Posts may even include a sports topic that has become enough of a news story to receive attention beyond SportsCenter. I plan to write a Rob’s Rants once or twice a month. Subscribe here.
Rob’s Rants on Sports: My sports rants will focus on the major Philadelphia teams—Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, and even those Eagles—as well as some national or just plain interesting sports stories. I tend to look at media coverage from time to time as well. I plan to do a weekly sports rant. Subscribe here.
Disability: These posts will include my thoughts on a particular topic regarding disability. Subscribing to Disability *and* Rob’s Rants may cause readers to get two e-mails for the same post at times. However, I may write the occasional article on a disability topic outside of the Rants. Subscribe here.
Please note that each subscription will only produce one e-mail on days that I post in the subject area of the label. If I post twice in one day—very unlikely—subscribers will still only receive one e-mail with links to each post for that day. If I don’t post in the subject area on a particular day, subscribers won’t receive a message. E-mails are set to arrive between 4 PM and 6 PM.
I will be able to see e-mail addresses of subscribers, but e-mails will not come from me. So, remember to adjust your spam filters or check your Junk Mail, especially for the initial verification of your subscription.
Finally, as I mentioned with Disability subscriptions, I may occasionally write an article on Philadelphia sports outside of the Rob’s Sports Rants format. These articles are not part of the Sports Rants subscription, but readers can always check out the Philadelphia Sports label when visiting the site to see any additional articles.
Of course, please don’t forget to look around the blog a bit when you read a post from a subscription link. You’ll see more labels to check out, and I may add subscriptions as things progress. The whole point is to make it easy for you to read what you want! In fact, if you notice a subject label that you’d like to read via a subscription, just let me know and I’ll add it.
If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions, about subscriptions, feel free to leave a comment on this post or e-mail me. (See Contact Rob.) However, please remember that the system is automated through FeedBurner, so I can’t do much to help readers setup a subscription. But it’s easy if you follow the simple instructions.
