In another post, it is mentioned that the Blog function of this site has RSS capability. I don't see that to actually be the case, so I'm wondering if I am just missing it somehow. 

If it is not an actual feature, can you please advise how I can allow people to follow my blog easily without me having to personally notify each time a post is made? 

I'd love to use the integrated blog versus learning Wordpress, but so far I'm not terribly impressed with it. An archive system and tags would be helpful, as well as search functionality. 

Thanks!

Hi Sarah5434

If you go to the blog page in Firefox, then you can use the bookmarks tab to Subscribe to the page.  There are several different options there.

So someone would need to be using Firefox to be able to subscribe to my blog? 
It would be nice if there were a button they could just click right from the blog.

Hi Sarah5434,   To clarify, you basically only need to use Firefox to find the RSS feed URL.  Then once you have the URL, you can provide it to others and they can use that url in whatever RSS viewer they wish. It does not have to be FireFox.  If you need help getting the URL let us know.

Ok, I see what you mean now. I am unable to install Firefox on the computers available to me. If you are able to provide the link that'd be great. 

Or if I can do the same thing myself in Chrome or IE that'd work as those are both available at work for me. Thank you!

Hi Sarah5434,  Are you needing help getting the RSS URL?  If so just post url for the site and blog page here and I'll get it for you.

Yes, please. Sorry I didn't post the site before. 

It's the Halsrud.Homestead.com/blog.html page of the halsrud.homestead.com site. 

Convenient that .homestead fits right in with what we're doing ;)
