Newsletters; or, an enormous rant about writing on the web that doesn’t really go anywhere and that’s okay with me
Robin wins the internet today. What a great post, but all the better for the custom design and story telling layered on top!
RSS, Atom, and even h-feed are great ways to subscribe to web content. Sadly the UI has been lacking. I always appreciated Julien Genestoux‘s solution with subtome.com over the more roundabout solutions like Matt Webb’s aboutfeeds.com.
People know what a feed is, what subscription is, what a stream of content is, they just need it to be way simpler, like the click of a button that says “follow” or subscribe”.
Give it a whirl!
Or better, yet…
