The other copy is called the blog (site) feed. The site feed is read by a newsfeed reader. If you would like to be informed, automatically, when this site (or any of millions of other sites on the Internet) is updated with new and interesting articles, you get a newsfeed reader, and subscribe to one or more feeds.
You have several choices, for newsfeed readers. Here are a few examples.
- Browser based: Bloglines, Google Reader, Sage (for FireFox)
- Cross platform: BottomFeeder
- Microsoft Windows: FeedDemon, NewsGator
- Mac OS X: NetNewsWire
You have several feed choices, for The Real Blogger Status. You can take any of these feed URLs, and subscribe using any of the above (or numerous other) newsfeed readers.
Please note that the above 4 feeds are just suggestions of what you may subscribe to, to get the most out of this blog.
Just beneath the orange "XML" sidebar icon, which you may have clicked to get here, you will see the "Subscribe To" gadget, with various options for Posts and Comments. You can add that gadget, using the Layout "Add a Gadget" wizard, as the standard Blogger "Subscription Links" gadget, to your blog.
