Notifications

I don’t want to always double-post anything I put on my home page, but since most people still probably bypass my front page and head straight for this page, I feel the need to point out when there is a new post on my home page.
Also, I said I was going to stop sending haiku notifications, since you can just assume a new will be posted every day, but I thought I’d take a poll from those who have signed up for notifications. Would you rather continue receiving daily haiku notifications or only notifications of other non-haiku entries?

As the Haiku says…

I received a lovely present from one of my fav peoples, Soupytwist, for my aide in her Movable Type dilemmas. She sent me “In 3-D” by “Weird Al” Yankovic, which she said was always one of her favorites of his. As I already knew, she has exquisite taste. This is probably the Weird Al-bum with which I have the most associations and nostalgic memories.I’ve been sitting here rocking out and being taken back to those days when Andy would spend the night and we would crank the cassette through my grandmother’s jam-box (which I, of course, took possession of 99% of the time).
Now everyone go and buy something for her off her wishlist for being so damn cool.
Also, I’m thinking I won’t send notifications for my Haiku anymore since I do them everyday, and now that I have them separated from the other content here, it just seems unnecessary and spammy.
I’m also experimenting with a new plugin. On the comments page you’ll now see a check box which will allow you to submit a comment and “subscribe” to that entry. You will then be notified any time new comments are posted to that entry. Unfortunately, this won’t work if you first preview your comment, only if you “post”, however there are also separate boxes to enter you email and subscribe without commenting, or subscribe to the all comments posted to this blog.
We’ll see what I think after trying it out for a bit.
