Feed the Desperate Pastor

It is gratifying to watch the Desperate Pastor's readers growing nicely month by month, and to see that many of you visit here regularly. However, a small percentage of you are subscribers. Did you know you can subscribe to the blogs you read regularly?

I read dozens of blogs daily, using Feedly (that's a screenshot of my Feedly feed in the photo). All I do is go to my feedly.com account on my web browser, and it automatically tells me how many (and which) blogs have new posts to read. It's easy.

The easiest way to subscribe to a blog is to set up a Feedly account, click "add content" on your page, and subscribe to RSS feeds. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary (of course, the acronym can be explained in many other creative ways), and it allows you to automatically receive updates from web sites. If you subscribe to an RSS feed, you get only what you want. If you tell the feed reader to stop collecting a site's feed, it will stop. And there's no spam. No spam!

To subscribe to Desperate Pastor, just click on the second item in the column at right, where it says, "Subscribe to Desperate Pastor," and choose one of the "news aggregators" or select "Atom" and then copy the url it takes you to and paste that url into your Feedly (or another similar service).

Oh, and you can also subscribe via email, too; just locate the third item in the column at right on the Desperate Pastor homepage, where it says, "Follow by Email." Enter your email in the box and you will receive posts in your inbox. It really is that simple.

And, while you're at it, feel free to recommend The Desperate Pastor to your friends. And enemies. Because Jesus said to love 'em all.
