The goal of the Seeding Change blog is to share with you the best resources and information we can find on increasing employment and economic outcomes for people with disabilities. We see ourselves as digital curators, identifying and sharing with you the information you don't have time to weed through. We also want to facilitate conversations and exchanges of ideas.
If you've never used a blog before, this is your guide to getting the most out of the Seeding Change blog.
1. Sign up for a subscription
Most of us are too busy to remember to visit a blog. If you want to be sure that you're updated whenever we add new materials, your best best is to sign up for a subscription. You can do this a couple of ways.
Subscribe by Email
If you'd like to receive your posts in your email inbox, look for the box in the right sidebar that looks like this:
Enter your email address into the box and click on the word "subscribe." That's it. Now you'll receive an email every time we add new information to the blog. Super easy. Really.
Subscribe through an RSS Reader
If you use an RSS Reader like Google Reader or Netvibes, then look for the "Subscribe To" section in the right sidebar, just below the email subscription. It looks like this:
Select the "Posts" option and then select the feed reader you use. If you don't know what we're talking about here, just use the email subscription option described above.
Comments are really the lifeblood of a blog. It's fine for us to share information with you, but we really want to get your feedback and ideas, which you can give us through the commenting feature on every post. Here's how it works.
- You read a blog post and you have an idea, a question, a suggestion for more information, etc.
- Scroll down to the bottom of that article and look for the link that says "Comments" and click on it.
- Write your comment in the comment box. You can either preview it first to see what it will look like or you can just hit "Post Comment." Your comment will be saved and we'll be able to see it. So will our readers, which is a great way to get conversations flowing.
