Movable Type for Beginners

What does "Syndicate this Site" mean?

I've been blogging for almost a year, and I still haven't a clue. But the answer can be found at Learning Movable Type.

Because reading blogs, news or whatever in a news aggregator like Net Newswire is faster and more convenient than surfing around interminably to see which of your favorite sites have been updated recently.

Give Bloglines a try, if you're curious.

What Kieran said. It sure is nice to have software that automatically checks blogs for updates, and gives me a nice list with synopses. It's how I know to pop in to read Invisible Adjunct.

I wish more sites would implement rss.

I like Bloglines. Thanks, Dorothea!

Yeah, I'd never heard of it until people started whining that I should implement it for LH, so I asked my Unpaid Technical Advisor, and he waved his magic wand and lo, it was implemented, and there was much rejoicing. I wouldn't know how to use it myself, but I'm glad it makes people happy.

Besides, thanks to IA and the folks he linked to (directly or indirectly) I can now run headlines from MO on my TOC.

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for the link because as someone who is still trying to learn more about MT, I have been frustrated but what I saw as a lack of useful directions for non-computer geeks. This looks potentially very helpful.
