Subscribe to Chica & Jo
Chica and Jo don’t want you to miss a single idea, tip, or project, but we understand that you might not have time visit our site every day. So we’ve made it easy for you to keep up with us by enabling two different kinds of subscriptions services: e-mail and RSS. These services ensure that all of our posts get straight to you with hardly any work on your part!
You can sign up to automatically receive an e-mail on each day that we post something to the site. If we don’t post that day, you don’t get an e-mail, and we promise we won’t share your address with anyone.
- Subscribe to our e-mail notification service to get daily e-mails of our posts.
If you already know how RSS feeds work, go ahead and subscribe to one of our feeds:
- Subscribe to our posts RSS feed to see all our new projects.
- Subscribe to our comments RSS feed to see what our readers have to say.
If you’re new to RSS feeds, please keep reading to learn more about them and how they can work for you!
What is an RSS feed?
An RSS feed is a listing of a Web site’s content that is updated whenever new content is published to the site. Programs called “RSS readers” or “feed readers” then download the RSS feed regularly and present it to you as a list of headlines and excerpts. Each headline will have a link back to the Web site it comes from, allowing you to read the entire story. You can subscribe to feeds from many different sites at once, and they will be grouped by site. You can then browse each site (and it’s associated headlines) at your leisure.
Why should I subscribe to an RSS feed?
An RSS feed saves you time. Instead of checking our site every day to stay on top of the lastest Chica & Jo activities, our RSS feed brings the news directly to you. You’ll never miss a post again! Chica and Jo have two feeds available for you: you can subscribe to our posts and/or our comments.
How do I know if a site has an RSS feed?
Most sites will provide a link somewhere in their site navigation that will alert you to the fact that they have an RSS feed available.
In addition, Firefox users can set up their browsers to automatically route any RSS requests to the RSS reader they have installed (Look under Tools->Options->Feeds). When you do that, you’ll see a little orange icon in your Location bar whenever you are on a site with an available feed. When you see that, just click on it and the site you’re viewing will be added to your reader.
How can I receive the ChicaandJo.com feed?
In order to read an RSS feed, you’ll need an RSS reader. There are many free Web-based RSS readers available, or you can download RSS reading software.
Chica happens to prefer Google Reader for her feeds, and Jo likes FeedReader.
