Site Changes

I added a couple of features to this blog.

Anytime a "Friend of MineThatData" writes a post on his/her blog, or is mentioned in the blogosphere, a link will be available for the reader to click on. This gives the reader an opportunity to click on the latest news about individuals writing about database marketing, customer analysis, web analytics and customer behavior.

Just below that feature are links to recent news about database marketing.

If you have a moment, please give each new feature a look. Both features are located on the right-hand side of the blog.

    This is very interesting Kevin. I would love to know how this nifty list is being generated. Thanks,


  2. It's pretty easy to do in Blogger. They have a widget whereby you can plug in an RSS feed into your template.

    So, I made the RSS feed a feed from Google Blogsearch. I wrote a Google Blogsearch query to look for any instance during the past two days where the person's name is one of the Friends of MineThatData. This query returns an RSS feed, which I plugged into the template.

    I'm going to continue to play with this, because I can put links up to all the non-Friends feeds that I view ... ultimately, one could become a "portal", if that were the direction one wanted to take.
