Do I really still need all those subscribe options and buttons. I’m a firm believer in giving your prospects and clients lots of ways to get what they want. So, I’ve always had lots of ways to subscribe to this blog’s feed, including email.
As RSS has become mainstream enough to actually be built into the next round of Microsoft products I’ve wondered if us bloggers still need to set-up all those ways to subscribe anymore. All those buttons can take us some serious real estate too.
A widget called Add This makes me wonder no more. You may have noted that each post now features a little button that takes those who click to a page that allows them to choose to bookmark the post from an ever changing array of social bookmarking sites.
In addition, you may note the little button in the upper right corner. This too will allow the reader wishing to subscribe to receive this blog by way of their favorite RSS site or software. Just click the button and subscribe by choosing from a dizzying selection of feed readers.
Go get add this and say so long to chicklet clutter.
Now, what about a version for podcast feeds and the most popular podcatchers?
