I finally found instructions on my blogspot.com host to explain how I can configure the blog to send you email whenever I publish a new post!
If you are interested, let me know by sending me email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
But, you won't see quick updates or comments via email.
I have not decided yet whether to email the entire post or just the first 255 characters. The question is, should this email serve as a notification that I have posted something new?
Either way, the email would end with a link to the actual blog.
