IMPORTANT: If you want to keep receiving Lateral Action…

If you subscribe to Lateral Action via email…

RSS iconYou can relax, there’s nothing for you to do. :-)

You’ll keep getting the latest blog posts as usual. Sorry to bother you, and have a great weekend.

If you subscribe to the RSS feed…

I’ve moved the Lateral Action RSS feed from Feedburner to Feedblitz, for a more reliable and better supported service.

So if you’re subscribed via RSS and you want to keep receiving practical inspiration from Lateral Action, you need to subscribe to the new feed.

You have two choices:

  1. Subscribe via email – the most reliable way to safeguard your subscription.
  2. Subscribe to the new feed in an RSS reader that isn’t Google Reader (see below).

If you’re using Google Reader…

You’re probably aware that Google is terminating Reader on 1st July.

So if you, like me, are a long-time user of Google Reader, it’s time to say goodbye to a small part of your daily routine, and embrace the future by subscribing to Lateral Action either via email, or via RSS in a new reader.

Feedly seems to be the most popular alternative – here are their tips for Google Reader users migrating to Feedly.

However you subscribe…

Thank you for reading Lateral Action, it’s a privilege to write for you.

  1. email is the best way. it’s the only way you have total control over your subscription. We don’t know when those other feed readers are going away also. Feedly today may be the most popular alternative to google’s retired service, but we don’t know until when they’re going to stay. …just saying :)
