Subscribing to the Blog

02 December 2017 | Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten
It is a drag to keep going back to a blog or website to see if anything has changed so, after a number of requests, I have been investigating various options to allow you to subscribe to the blog so that you get an email when there is a new post instead of having to keep checking in.

The easiest option would be for me to use a third-party email subscription service like MailChimp. Unfortunately these don't seem to protect subscriber privacy at all well and there is a risk of them harvesting and exploiting your email addresses which is not going to happen.

The best option I have found is IFTTT. This is a service that you subscribe to that can do a remarkable number of automation tasks - most of which are probably useless..... it will need your email address of course but you control the privacy settings and you may actually find it useful for checking in on other web pages that change infrequently. All you need to do when you have set it up is to login to your IFTTT account and manage your privacy settings so that it doesn't send you promotional emails, but this seems to be fairly straightforward. Happy to help if needed.

The link to the IFTTT setup page is here.

The RSS feed link you will need for the blog is:

memberdir directly follows the question mark with no space.

I hope this is useful. Please provide feedback in the comments.

Vessel Name: Leela
Vessel Make/Model: Bristol 38.8
Hailing Port: Portsmouth, NH
Crew: Graham and Janaki
About:
We are a Brit and an Australian now based in the wonderful community of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We have a delightful home there but a couple of years ago we began to feel a bit over-domesticated so we thought we would buy another boat and head south. [...]
Extra:
Leela, a Bristol 38.8 has turned out to be a wonderful cruising boat for us. Some might find it a little cramped by modern standards but it feels like just the right balance of living space and storage to us. She sails like a dream. She is remarkably well balanced and is comfortable in pretty [...]
