If you want to get notified by e-mail every time we write a new blog post, use the “E-mail Notification” widget in the side bar to sign up. (The side bar should normally be to the right of the main content on all pages on this site, but depending on your web browser, it could also be elsewhere.) Enter your name and e-mail address and click the “Subscribe” button. You will then get an e-mail message with a confirmation link. Click that link to confirm that you want to subscribe, and you will get another e-mail message confirming that you are in. Whenever you want, you can cancel the subscription.
Another possibility is that you click the “Entries RSS” link in the “Meta” widget in the side bar. This will enable you to add a bookmark or favorite in your web browser, providing a list of new blog posts.
Blog post comments
As a reader of the Advanced Tourists web site, you can write comments on our blog posts. We welcome comments with interesting information about the places we have visited, or generally comments which make the site enjoyable to read.
When you submit a comment, we will read it, and we will publish it on the site unless we disapprove.
Here is the procedure. You decide which blog post you want to comment on, and click its title. The post’s own page will appear. Near the bottom of the page there will be a form titled “Leave a Reply”. Fill in the fields as follows:
- Comment (mandatory). Your comment text.
- Name (desirable but not mandatory). Your name. If you do not want to use your real name, you can make one up. The name will be published next to your comment.
- Email (desirable but not mandatory). Your e-mail address. It will be available to us so we can contact you if we need to, but it will not be published on the site.
- Website (optional). If you have your own web site or a web page presenting you, you can enter its complete web address here, such as “http://www.alice.net/” or “https://www.example.com/people/alice.html” (without the quotes). Your name published next to your comment will then take the form of a link to your site or page.
Before you submit your comment, please take care to read through everything you have entered and make sure you are satisfied with it, as you will not be able to change it later without our help. When you are finished, click the “Post Comment” button to submit the comment. (You will get no confirmation that the submission was successful.) We will be notified automatically of your new comment, and we will read it. Unless we disapprove of it, we will publish it, normally within a few hours or possibly a couple of days. The comment will then be displayed on the post’s own page, but not on the home page.
It is also possible to comment on an already published comment. In this case, you follow the same procedure as above, but before entering any text you click the “Reply” button below the comment you want to comment on.
Feel free to mail us! Our mail addresses consist of an “s” or a “c”, followed by a commercial at sign, followed by “advanced-tourists.com”. (This cryptic description is to protect against spam.)
If there is any trouble, you can contact us at either of the e-mail addresses above. Hopefully we can sort it out.
