After becoming a happy father, this blog has gone through its share of backblogging efforts. And here we are again, official hiatus, sporadic posts… Buried in virtualmeet.net, I feel no need to be apologetic for not being able to give the blog the demanding love it so craves, but I am starting to feel increasingly sorry for my readers who never know when to expect a new post. Not everyone is an avid feedreader. In fact, based on the server logs, I know that many of you are browsing in at least once a day, bravely defying the odds. And others… sayonara and sorry.
Without elaborating further on the misery my dear readers face from time to time, I shall attempt to cut to the chase. Following in Scott’s footsteps, I went ahead and outsourced my subscription services to FeedBurner. This brings with it the opportunity to receive a daily e-mail digest if, and only if, new content has appeared at Under the Bar. Separate subscriptions exist for posts and comments. Secondly, this allows me to consolidate all my feeds into one as FeedBurner intelligently delivers a format (Atom or RSS) your feedreader understands. As an auspicious side-effect, comments are now also available in the Atom format. Those of you already subscribed to one of my old feeds should be redirected seamlessly to the new one.
You can subscribe in the sidebar.
Hopefully, this will help make some of your lives a bit less painful while allowing those with a masochistic bent to continue their daily foraging for posts. At least it makes me sleep better at night. No more nightmares involving hordes of readers banging on my door asking whether an update has been posted. No more lost legs. Speaking of sleep, or lack thereof, I have finally corrected a long-standing two hour time offset for my blog; now the ghastly truth of my late habits will be revealed to all. In case you didn’t know, this blog slaves under Finnish time, i.e. GMT +2.
Now, who is ready to be surprised when you least expect it?
