Topic: i changed to a different blog software (10 msgs / 184 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
As I mentioned, I in fact DID switch to a different weblog software 
so here is the address:http://www.sweetmarias.com/weblog/This is still just in testing mode, and I havent put any link on the 
site, but it will allow for the RSS Feed thing (the new blog has this 
"Add to Any" feed button that helps you add it to a ton of services, 
or enter in your own custom one). I think it will be useful and I 
will remove our links to the defunct "announcement list" that was so 
clumsy and impossible to actually use, and implement this blog 
instead. It still might change, but this link will be the right place 
nomatter what.

Excellent! I did not see a icon to add to my Firefox RSS feed but was  
able to do it by clicking on "Manage Bookmarks...." under the Bookmarks  
menu and then clicking on "New Live Bookmark..."  under the File menu.  
Then I only had to copy the  http://www.sweetmarias.com/weblog/?feed=rss2into the feed location and  
voila it works. Of course I also renamed the "live bookmark."

Also look at the Live Bookmarks extensions for FF:
https://addons.mozilla.org/search.php?q=live+bookmarks&type=A&app=firefox
There are some of them that really enhance what is native to the browser.

Tom, you might want to add this Feed URL to your 'blogroll' on the sidebar.
For people who read RSS press releases and blogs with a newsreader (or browser 
integrated read) instead of using an online news service, use the URL: http://www.sweetmarias.com/weblog/?feed=rss2I see it is powered by WordPress, a great product. I use this on two of my 
websites (neither are blogs) and will be adding it as my CMS on a third.
