OK, ever since Carla asked why we didn't post links to the new cruise reviews as they were published, I have been on a quest to come up with a good way to do it.
I started posting them to their respective cruise forums, but it just trashed up the conversations....ditto for the cruise line's press releases and such. Cruise-Chat.com seems to be doing pretty well just as a discussion community. I spoke to a ton of Internet gurus who all had great solutions, but they also cost a ton of money and the last thing I want to do is trash CruiseReviews.com with a bunch of advertising in order to pay for it. Google AdSense is enough.
So with the help of Nancy Norris, we have developed something so cool it is almost unbelievable. We can deliver links to new cruise reviews, cruise news and information, links to key conversations in Cruise-Chat.com and much, much more. It is in an easy to read format and is absolutely non-invasive in any way. It is really, really cool!
The catch is, that it is an emerging technology that some Cruise-Chat.com readers may already use, but it might be new for many of you. I guarantee you that if you try it, you will love it.
We have established a Cruise News Blog that is located at:
You can check it out now as it is live and Nancy and I are still playing around with it.
But there is more! There is a news feed from the blog that you can access that is really cool. So here is what to do. visit the blog and then click on the "Subscribe to Cruise News Blog RSS Feed". Then follow the instructions that you find there to subscribe. It only takes a couple of minutes and it does not cost a cent to subscribe or maintain access to the feed.
I would love feeback on the subscription process, blog format and content and RSS feed. We are still finalizing this effort and any/all ideas will halp us make it more effective for future subscribers.
BTW, once you get involved with RSS, you won't believe how you ever lived without it.
Thanks in advance.
