Two grumbles, actually.
So I thought I could change all my blog subscriptions from rss feed to email. But then I discovered that some blogs don’t offer an email subscription, so I’m still going to have to use some feed reader – if I manage to remember to check it now and again…
WordPress Reader allows the inclusion of non-WordPress blogs, so there is that option.
But… here’s the other grumble: if I subscribe to a WordPress blog, I get emails whether I like it or not. There’s one blog in particular that I’d like to keep in touch with in a loose kind of way – it’s a very busy blog, far too many posts for me to keep up with, so glancing through their posts in the WP Reader would have been ideal, but once I signed up to follow that blog, I started to get email alerts for their posts. When I clicked on the Manage Subscriptions link, I got the list of all blogs I’m subscribed to and for each of them I can choose how often I want emails (immediately/daily/weekly) but there is no “none” option.
Sigh. Looks like I will still have to use a separate feed reader after all.
