Elginism on Facebook

Posted at 11:36 am in Elgin Marbles

Blogs can now be added to Facebook. You can add yourself as a reader of Elginism here.

It might be worth at this point also explaining (following various queries from people), what the link on the left hand side of the main page of this website saying Entries RSS is for. This link is actually a very handy way of keeping track of what has been posted on this website (or for that matter on others, as many sites now have this feature). The RSS link leads you to a news feed (essentially the text of the posts, without all the formatting & site surrounding them). The clever part though, is that there are various programs that can download the new items from the site, so that you don’t have to keep going back to it to see if there is anything new.

I won’t try & explain all the details of how to use it here – the BBC’s website has a good tutorial on the subject. Websites such as Bloglines allow you to look at a variety of new feeds online without having to add a separate program for viewing them.
