Get Headings to this Blog Right on Your Homepage

Would you like to subscribe to this blog? Doing so will allow you to see the newest headings right on your homepage. One free and easy method of subscribing is by using My Yahoo!


Here is how to get set up:

1. Click: http://my.yahoo.com
2. If you already have a Yahoo! account, sign in. If not, you will need to create a new account by clicking on “Sign Up Now.”

Once you have signed in to your Yahoo! account, you will need to add our RSS feeder. RSS is a technology that pulls the most recent entries of our blog onto your Yahoo! homepage. (For more information on RSS, visit http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/12/18/dive-into-xml.html)

Here is what you need to do from this point:
1. Click “Add Content” (usually found on the top left-hand side of the page)
2. Click “Add RSS by URL” next to the Find button
3. Type the following address into the URL box:

http://living-well.blogspot.com/atom.xml

4. If necessary, confirm your addition by clicking the “Add” button when prompted.
5. Click the link to return to the My Yahoo! page.

Once you do this, every time there is a new entry into the blog, the heading will pop up on your home page. By clicking on the heading, you can go directly into the blog.
From the blog, there will also be links into the Livingwell Forums Board at the Akron Beacon Journal’s Web site at www.ohio.com.
