How to Subscribe to My New Blog: The Sunday Dinner Revival

Hello Dear Food-G Fans and Followers,

And Happy Valentine's Day. Gosh, I miss you! And I miss connecting with you here on Food-G, but as you know, the time has come to move on to bigger and better blogging.

Many of you contacted me when I announced the big move with cries of anguish. Okay, maybe not anguish. But you were concerned, nonetheless, that you would no longer receive my posts in your inbox, all easy and convenient-like. Well, fear not! For I have made sure that you will be able to receive those same easy and convenient emails from my new blog, The Sunday Dinner Revival.

If you haven't checked it out yet, YOU ARE MISSING OUT on stuff like:

Ad Hoc's Fried Chicken and Potato Pave

My Signature Sweet Skillet Cornbread

or Zuni Cafe Roast Chicken with Bread Salad

Because I know some of you would appreciate a walk through with the new email subscription, I am at your service. Just follow these easy-as-pie steps and every single post (about 2 per week) will show up in your inbox for you to peruse at your leisure.

1. Go to my new fancy-pants blog: The Sunday Dinner Revival
2. Just below my head shot and welcome message you will see two "Subscribe" buttons. Click on the ENVELOPE for email subscription.
3. A window will open (from FeedBurner). Enter your email address in the box and follow the instructions to type the anti-spam code.
4. If you entered the info correctly, a new window will open alerting you that your request has been accepted, and informing you that A VERIFICATION EMAIL will be sent to your inbox. When it shows up (usually within minutes), open the email, click on the link to verify the subscription, and BAM! All done. Now you will never miss a recipe, a story, a photo, or a laugh from yours truly.

Here's another subscription option you might be curious about:

So what is all this RSS business, you ask? RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication. RSS allows you to subscribe to all your favorite blogs and websites, but instead of sending the content to your email inbox, it stores it in your own personal RSS Feed page, aka"Reader," aka"Aggregate." Think of it as your personal newsstand, where you have hand-selected every magazine and newspaper on the shelf.

Subscribing via RSS may be appealing if you find yourself signing up for way too many EMAIL subscriptions, and ending up with inbox-overload. You can have your little stack of magazines and catalogs on a "digital coffee table", which is usually easy to find on your internet browser. On my version of Internet Explorer, there's a little RSS icon in the tool bar, which looks like this:

When I click it, a list of the most recent content from the sites I've subscribed to comes up. So if you think you want to become an RSS subscriber (heck, why not do both!), just follow these steps:

1. Go to my fancy-pants new blog: The Sunday Dinner Revival
2. Just below my head shot and welcome message you will see two "Subscribe" buttons. Click on the RSS icon (similar to the one shown above).
3. A window will open, powered by FeedBurner. The best thing to do if you're new to RSS is click on the link that says, "Learn more about syndication and FeedBurner." A page will open that explains all the ins and outs and walks you through stuff like choosing a "Reader". If it all sounds like Chinese to you, just do the email subscription. It's easier : )

And finally, one last humble request: Blogging is a labor of love, and it takes a devoted readership to generate the kind of following that makes the work worth doing. Sharing these recipes and stories with you has been an honor, but I need you now, more than ever, to tell your friends about The Sunday Dinner Revival. Put a link on your Facebook Page, send out an email, whatever works, just help me build an audience so that I can keep bringing the flavor to your table. Much obliged.

With Love and Gratitude,
