How do you subscribe to this page?

CRAZY question, I know! But, I can't figure it out for the life of me and keep being asked.

Please help with my own page!

And I am looking for where to put a widget up right this minute.



These are the instructions... accurate?

  1. Create a new Member Account - Each person who requires email updates should have an account within your site. You can add member accounts from within [Members & Access > Member Accounts] from within your site manager.
  2. Have the Member Enable the Subscription - Once your member logs in to your site using his/her account, they can create a subscription to any page on your site by clicking their profile link in the admin bar at the top right of the screen. Under Membership Management, click Subscribe to Page Updates on the page they wish to receive updates for.

I subscribe with google reader. I just copy and pasted the url into the "add subscription" box in my google reader. I don't actually read your blog at your blog site, but read it instead in the reader. If I want to make a comment, like right now, I click the link in the reader and it takes me to the post.

I subscribe via Google Reader. Anyone who has a google/gmail account can go to the "Reader" tab and in the upper left-hand corner there is a box that says "Add a Subscription." You can either copy/paste the url of this blog (or any other) into that and hit the okay button, or just type "Navelgazing Midwife" and it should pop up on its own. I actually found the birth blogosphere in the first place by typing the word "birth" and browsing from one recommended blog to the next, subscribing and unsubscribing as I discovered and uncovered blogs.

What you're looking for is a feature called an RSS feed - it's a way for blogs and other frequently-updated websites to "broadcast" to people who choose to subscribe using an RSS reader like Google Reader. I subscribe to your site using Google Reader myself.

The way you subscribe is different in different Web browsers - some browsers have a little "RSS" at the end of the address bar, or a little orange RSS icon (a dot with two quarter-circles). In Firefox 4, you go to the Bookmarks menu and choose "Subscribe to This Page, then "Subscribe to RSS."

Hope that helps!

I also read through Google Reader.:)

Like the others, I read your blog via Google Reader. Perhaps login settings are for other squarespace members, so that they can get a different kind of notification? I know that Blogger has something like that - you can log in and subscribe to other blogs, and it will show up on your Blogger dashboard. (However, I don't use that any more since I have Reader, which works for so many different things).

Another Google Reader- reader here. I keep up with blogs from my smartphone.

I'm also a Google Reader fan. If you wanted to make it a little easier for folks to add your blog to GR (with 1 click), you could add a button. Easy instructions here: http://www.google.com/webmasters/add.html

Hope that helps!

I use Firefox 4 and went to the Bookmarks menu and choose "Subscribe to This Page, then "Subscribe to RSS." I was then able to get the correct URL which meant I can subscribe to this blog via Yahoo and receive an email alert.

Thanks for asking your readers how to subscribe. I don't visit facebook often enough to see when you have notified of a new blog.

I was recently introduced to your blog. I have to say that what you describe as to the issue of competency and safety and the CPM is completely congruent with what I have experienced in my interactions with members of that community over the years. I would add that the CNM population is over represented by what is known as the "medwife." That is, the midwife who is most comfortable and familiar with the medical model of care as her roots are in nursing, not midwifery. This division of midwifery between the incompetent and therefore dangerous CPM and the (typically) labor and delivery nurse who becomes a midwife with all the accompanying baggage that implies, is a sad commentary on American midwifery. Sadder still that this is the outcome of the American medical community's efforts to suppress the emergence of midwifery as a part of the developing health care system in the early 20th century; all, of course, to control the flow of money to be made in delivering health care. This remains true to this day. My wish is to see the CM credential recognized in the remaining 47 states that have yet to do so and every state to have a Board of Midwifery. If only SUNY Downstate would offer CM education as a distance program. Janet Schwab, MSN, CNM
