One of the really great things about the new blog software we're using, is that there is a large community of people creating plug-ins and customizations for anyone to use. This site would not be possible without these tools, and the assistance of their authors. Deepest gratitude to the entire Wordpress community for making these features possible:

Is there anyway to syndicate the Hot Topics box?

That's a good idea. I might not be able to do the "Hot Topics" per se, but could possibly just syndicate all comments or something. I'll look into it.

Better late than never, Terri! I have just added two new RSS features. You can now subscribe to the comments on any particular thread using the link that says Subscribe to comments on this post (RSS) in the left-hand navigation.

You can also subscribe to the comments for the entire site at . You could already subscribe to the posts at

For those who don't know what the heck we're talking about, check out . This is just one example of an "aggregator," which is a great way to read constantly updated websites like this one.

Thanks Ruby!

While I'm still feeling geeky, I have also added a link on each page to a printable version. This will work on individual posts and on archive pages (that is, by category, month, or author). Look for that in the left side navigation as well.

I want to point out that when it says "subscribe" with RSS, this is not an e-mail subscription. Here's more information about what RSS is.

I will also look into some e-mail options for those of you who don't want to use an RSS aggregator.
