I’ve got the news category added to the front page under its own header and am in the process of moving previous update posts to this category. You can now subscribe to site updates using your favorite RSS reader! Email updates coming soon.
I added the feed subscription link to the sidebar.
The default link will subscribe you to all posts made including news posts and book posts. I’m not sure how the book posts will be formatted in the feed reader, but you’d at least get a link.
I’ll set up a news-only option in a bit.
