Tired of my posts?

If so, have I got news for you. =) You can now opt out of them! In fact, you can opt out of any blogs you don't want to read anymore, and opt into a slew of new blogs now available. You can now customize Letterboxing News to suit your own needs instead of the one-size-fits-all that used to be the norm.

For the quick-eyed folks out there, you might have noticed a new option under the People menu option called Read Blogs. This is where all the magic happens. You can add your own blogs that other members may subscribe to, or browse through other people's blogs and subscribe (or unsubscribe) to the ones that seem most interesting to you.

Posts to your subscribed blogs will show up automatically as Letterboxing News on My Page.

By default, everyone is subscribed to the blogs you've always seen and enjoyed. If you'd rather not read some of these defaults, don't! Unsubscribe to them. Premium members, who've had a sneak peek of this feature, have already added several of their own blogs that you can now subscribe to as well. I'm a big fan of the Dorks Anonymous blog myself. Hilarious stuff there, even if it's not usually about letterboxing. =)

And if you don't want to see posts like this one in your Letterboxing News? Unsubscribe from the Letterboxing is Fun blog. There's often good information in it about updates to Atlas Quest--such as this one--however, so of all the blogs, it's probably the most useful to know what's going on on this site. You can unsubscribe, but I wouldn't recommend it! ;o) I have three other blogs I've listed, though, two of which you are not subscribed to automatically since they aren't about letterboxing. The last blog of mine, Ryan's Great Adventures, isn't usually about letterboxing, but a lot of people seem to enjoy that so it's still a default. If you don't want to hear about my travel adventures, however, feel free to unsubscribe.

This feature has been brought to you by Ryan. No bloggers were harmed in the making of this feature.

long overdue!.now we can pick and chose, and for me that means more blogs on hiking and letterboxing, and not other stuff...long idea yet. Allows others a chance to have their pages read daily, thanks ryan

I totally agree with you about the hilarious "Dorks Anonymous" blog... worth every cent of the cost of subscription (especially since it's free)! Thanks for this great feature, Ryan!
