Keeping yourself up-to-date at selfpress blog
Overview of selfpress
Subscribe with RSS (pull strategy) || Subscribe with email ID (push strategy)
My self-hosted Wordpress blog (selfpress blog) at https://drpartha.org.in/wp/# keeps
getting new content / modified content regularly. You may like to be aware of the latest content and keep
yourself up-to-date. The blog gives you several easy ways to do this:
Each stratgey has its own advantages and disadvantages. You can choose the one which suits you best.
- "Pull" strategy (using RSS)
- "Push" strategy (using email alerts)
- Other strategies
In this case, you pull out information regarding changes in a web page or web site, whenever you want. This approach is
most useful when you want to monitor sites whose contents can change frequently. You do not want to probe all such sites, all the time,
and discover the ones which have changes. RSS provides a
convenient way of keeping yourself up-to-date.
RSS is most convenient for sites whose contents can change frequently, like blogs, podasts, newsletters etc. For static sites,
procedure is more cumbersome and may not be worthwhile.
For instance, you can follow the Wordpress based blog (selfpress blog) at
by using RSS, or you can visit that site directly anytime, to explore specific entries, by clicking on the
Subscribe using RSS
This "pull strategy" registration facility is accessible to you
from the selfpress blog itself.
RSS is just an XML file that follows some specific conventions. You
can write the XML manually, but the task is tedious, especially if your site publishes
lots of changes every day. This is the reason why the RSS file is normally generated
by your CMS (in this case, Wordpress).
In contrast to the above strategy, you can ask the site to inform you by mail, whenever there is something new to report. The
new information is "pushed" into your inbox. You dont have to remember to go and search for yourself.
This "push strategy" registration facility is accessible to
the selfpress blog itself.
There are other tools also in the selfpress site for getting up-to-date information about selfpress.
- Site map : The selfpress blog has an automatically generated
sitemap to help search
- Tags : Each blog entry has the relevant keywords grouped under the
section marked as "Tags". This will make it easy to locate any specific blog/topic which you may be interested in. The "search"
box near the very top will help you locate any blog post which contains the tag.
- Links : There are an ample number of cross-references (hyperlinks) to other parts of my website. The
horizontal menu on the first
line of the selfpress homepage is a good starting point.
