Website Improvements: The MineThatData Blog

About twenty percent of you read this blog by physically visiting the homepage. For you, I've made several changes.

In addition to the way the blog now looks, I've added numerous widgets to the right sidebar. The widgets feature links to the most recent articles from leading Database Marketing trade journals, research organizations, and a small sample of bloggers from the Friends of MineThatData list.
If you're a daily visitor who is interested in Database Marketing, this feature will serve as sort of a "My Yahoo" page for keeping up to date with our industry. The most recent 2-3 posts from each author will be posted as hyperlinks for you to click on. In essence, this is your introduction to RSS feeds.

I hope you find the new features helpful.

    Thanks for adding the Daily Fix! Looking forward to checking out some of the others you posted here, as well.

    Ann --- no problem!
