Just what are these? Apparently, one can shift one's blog from one place to another if on has the "blog feed" information. Sounds helpful for publicity. So, how do I find the "blog feed" for a blog posted on Crime Space?
Many thanks to the knowledgable and helpful people on Crime Space.
I don't think Crimespace does blog feeds, though I see it will link with Twitter and Facebook.
Blog feeds are essentially syndication. (RSS, one of the major types of feeds, stands for "Really Simple Syndication.") Most blogs allow the owner to create a feed by clicking a button. This then alerts anyone with an aggregator (Google Reader, Net Vibes, etc.) to get more or less instant updates when blogs I follow are updated. I depend on feeds now to keep me current with anything I like to follow.
I.J.: I am the last person you want advice from regarding blog posts, etc. However, I must have don something right on my Amazon Author Central account. This site allows you to connect your blog through an RSS feed to Amazon. When I post as new article on the blog, it magically appears on my Author site ... or least it looks like it from my end. Might want to check to see if you can set this up.

There is a link to Amazon for additional information.
Ah! Yes, that's precisely what I was thinking of doing. I also looked at Amazon Author Central. :)
Well, it's a pity. I guess the only thing to do is to set up my own blog, but I don't want to blog constantly. I have work to do. (And people looking over my shoulder).
Thanks. That's very kind of you. I doubt I have the time to run a blog. On the whole, I'd like to do it off my web site. The Kindle blog I posted to doesn't seem to get any traffic. I was all set to deal with comments. Maybe that's an indication of how blogging ends up just wasting time.
I'll save the info, though. Again, thank you very much.
I.J., this is actually very easy to do.
Please let me know if you have any questions and for an example, take a look at my crimespace page.
