A Few Small Changes

Hi folks!

You may have noticed in the past few days I’ve made a few small tweaks to the site. The most noticeable, perhaps, is that to comment you are now required to enter a name and an email address. Of course, you can still enter a fake name and email address, but my hope is that adding this little extra step will encourage people to take some responsibility for what they post and put a name behind it (even if they’re not willing to use their real name).

Another change is that there is a new way to enjoy the site. If you own a Kindle, you can now subscribe to the blog via Amazon.com’s Kindle blog service. It costs a few dollars — this is happening through Newstex, who syndicates our blog — so I had no idea it was even happening.

Keep in mind, though, that our content is available for free on the site, and via RSS feed. Language learners can try out this mirror version of the site and RSS feed for a reading challenge (also free).

And while you’re here, I’d like to remind everyone that we’re always looking for guest posts and new contributors to join us. The Style Guide was just updated, so check that out if you’re interested. And if you’re Chinese, our 中文版 needs contributors, too.
