I’m always playing around with new things. Today I came across the idea of making a side-blog for the site. Blogger Buster had a tutorial on exactly how to do it, using posts on your regular blog. I just could not get the code to work correctly, so I came up with a slightly different idea. I created a new, very simple and plain blog. I then published the feed through Feedburner, and created a Spring Widget using that feed. After that, all I had to do was install that widget on my sidebar. By the way, if your interested, you can grab a copy of it for yourself. simply click on the get this widget on that neat looking little thing.
I am always running across new and interesting things on the web, and wanting to share the information. It’s just generally not enough for a full post on this site, but too much for the 144 character limit on Twitter. Now all I have to do is make a quick and easy post on RSTMB Sideblog and it shows up here where I want it. Sometimes I can get a little carried away, but I think this time I came up with a good solution for me.
RSTMB Sideblog is a regular blog, complete with feeds and follow options. So if you want to know what I’m doing a little more frequently than just at this site, go on over and grab a feed. You can also comment on the posts just like any other blog. Mostly though think of it as a quick check for deals and interesting items on the web. For instance, if you check this post, you’ll find a link and discount code to get a deal on the brand new Denver Cereal Book!!!!
I simply want to do just a little more to help out my readers, and keep you all informed of stuff I find. It will also allow me to keep this site more targeted toward my writing, and everyday life. I hope you find it useful, and fun.
