Self-promotion and the weekend service advisories

By · Published in 2008

Let’s talk a little self-promotion. It’s been a while since I’ve plugged ways you can stay in touch with Second Ave. Sagas, and so I’m going to borrow a few minutes before the service advisories to let you know.

You can subscribe to Second Ave. Sagas by e-mail. Browse to this link, insert your e-mail address and receive new posts in your inbox. Neither FeedBurner nor I will use your e-mail address for any other purpose.

For those of us addicted to social networking, you can become a supporter of Second Ave. Sagas on Facebook. Spread the word.

And finally, you can subscribe to Second Ave. Sagas’ RSS Feed. I recommend Google Reader or Bloglines for all of your web-based RSS subscription needs.
