Subscriptions are free. My writing on this site is free as in free speech and free beer. The only payment I ask for today is in whuffies. Please copy and share and link to my posts if it seems like something fun to do.
There are several ways to receive or be notified of new posts:
If you are on the internet and reading this, you almost certainly have email. You can sign up to receive new posts via email. It’s easy and non-threatening. (And don’t forget that it’s free.) I won’t share your email address with anyone, and it will only be used for mailing new posts.
If you don’t know what RSS is, and the acronym is making you anxious and stressed out, because, “Why does technology have to be so complicated?!”, please don’t panic. Just subscribe by email, or use Facebook, or commit to visiting the site multiple times per day “in person.” NO PROBLEM.
If you don’t know what feeds are, but are curious, you should totally learn more about this. Subscribing to web sites via feeds and reading them in a feed reader is a great way to keep up with things on the web and save yourself some time. (Well, more likely it will take time away, once your reader is bulging with feeds and overflowing with posts.) I use Google Reader. Here’s an old introductory post from their blog: Google Reader for Beginners.
If you know about RSS feeds and use them, clearly you don’t need my explanations and exhortations…
There is a MovingToFreedom Facebook page. You can “like” it to start seeing links to most of my blog posts in your news feed there. Maybe all of them. I generally share links to all posts on Facebook, but it’s not automated. I might neglect to update Facebook (unlikely), or, disturbingly, Facebook may decide it’s in your best interest to not see my links prominently in your feed. To effectively counter this, you should “like” all my MovingToFreedom Facebook items and “interact” frequently with them.
I sometimes post other stuff on Facebook, so you’ll get more than just links to my blog posts. You’ll get bonus material, not found on this site. (Except for when I’m not bothering to update FB much, because what’s the point, no one ever reads this crap anyway.) Also, when comments are disabled here, Facebook offers a convenient way for you to engage in intense intellectual conversations about the stimulating subject matter you’ve found here.
My general purpose Twitter account:
I post links to blog posts along with miscellaneous standard tweetery: updates on what I had for lunch, cat pictures, links to feverish conspiracy theories, the progress of my bowel movements, and cryptic statements that make no sense out of context.
And here’s an account I’ve been using almost exclusively for links to blog posts, if that’s all you’re interested in seeing:
