Some Changes 'Round Here

Got inspired tonight and added some new features.

First, thanks to Feedburner, you can now receive a daily digest of this blog via email. Sign up in the Subscribe section in the right column of the blog.

Second, thanks to Adam Kalsey, I've added a "related posts" section at the bottom of entry pages. This will show you posts that are related to the post you're reading.

Finally, I've changed the way the linkblog works in the RSS feed. The linkblog posts, characterized by a link and a sentence or two of text, are now prefaced with "Link:". When you click on a linkblog link, it will now take you to this blog, instead of to the linked story that exists elsewhere. You can click through to the story from this blog, but the advantage of clicking through to this site instead of directly to the linked site is that you'll now see entries related to the linkblog story (see "related entries" paragraph, above).

Please let me know how you like / dislike the changes.

Thumbs up, especially to the link coming to your site. I tend to read feeds by opening ones that interest me in new tabs. Then I read them ten or so at a time. It was always strange to come upon some random page that no longer had the context of your comments. I understood why you did it that way (it removed an extra step), but it was different than the behavior of everything else in my feed reader.

As for the related posts, it's a good idea. Most of the automagic choices seem pretty good, so I don't want to pick on it too much.

The first one I looked at was this post:

Which points to only one (pretty much unrelated) post, missing your other MySpace posts.
