What are the “Track Because He Lives” buttons all about?

RSS

RSS feed to track Because He Lives.

You’ve probably seen this icon on loads of websites in the past. It represents the RSS feed and will allow you to subscribe to a blog or website.

So maybe you’re thinking this site is for you and you’d like to keep up with articles posted? That’s great. There’s a few ways you could do it.

Firstly RSS. When I started blogging I had an incredibly long list of sites that I’d visit everyday. It was painstaking and time consuming. Sometimes a site would update just after I’d visited it and I wouldn’t know until the next day.

RSS is the answer. Basically you can tell the blogs you like to inform you you when they’ve changed, automatically, no need to do anything on your part. How cool is that!

All you’ll need is a RSS reader, then subscribe to as many blogs as you like and they’ll start to notifying your RSS reader. Simple. If you’re using Internet Explorer 7 or above (and most of my readers are) then everything is already built into the browser. Give it a bash, click on the image in this post.

Technorati

Technorati link to fav Because He Lives.

Everyone likes a bit of advertising. Fav my blog on Technorati and you’ll make my day.

Technorati is a way of introducing the world to the stuff you like. It showcases good blog content.

If you’re a member why not write a review of this site or even an article. Fav this blog and you’ll make my day.







Twitter

Tweets keep you updated on what I'm doing.

People either love or hate Twitter.

Maybe RSS seems a bit involved and Technorati like a bit too much effort? Twitter is a good in between.

Basically I update my status on Twitter with a short message. I do this when I’ve posted an article or made a significant change to the site, like a new banner or additional widgets in the right hand column. If you’re a follower of my tweets then that message is automatically sent on to you. It’s a “Simple Simon” way of keeping in touch with what I’m doing on the blog.

Facebook

Facebook allows you to link directly to me.

Facebook is a social networking site.

Have you heard of Facebook? It’s like a family braai, except anyone’s invited and everyone has a pocket photo album that they want to share. You can see what’s happening in peoples lives and generally keep up to date with folk.

I love it. Checking out what’s going on in the lives of my friends is my favorite online activity.

Any other follow/track me things I should be using?
