Email Subscription: get notified when the site is updated

A couple of folks have asked me to update them when there's new content on the site.

I just spent a few minutes hooking up an email subscription form: just enter your email address and you'll be notified when this site is updated! This is SPAM free, so don't worry; and you can always un-subscribe later if you get tired of information on Loreto or our project.

Enter your Email

Sample Email | Powered by FeedBlitz

Note: the videos don't properly show up sometimes through email. When you get notified by email, if you don't see the video, just come directly to this site and the video will show up properly.

More Technical details - read this only if you'd like to know how I hooked this up in literally 15 minutes. Using the Movable Type templates, I had already created an RSS 2.0 feed for the site, which you can see here. If you are using an RSS client, such as the free Google Reader, just subscribe to the feed. But many folks do not yet use RSS, so I used the Feedblitz service to allow for email subscriptions using my RSS feed. Sweet stuff.
