FeedRabbit Delivers Colorado Railroads To Your Email Inbox

Much as I appreciate Google, I am also painfully aware that the G is notorious for buying up services (like YouTube, Picasa or FeedBurner) and then choosing to alter functions or drop the service altogether. They have on occasion bought out the competition and then closed up shop, in the process denying a feature or service that the public might otherwise have enjoyed. It's expensive, but when you have the resources that Google has, it's not that big of a problem. 

The changes they made to FeedBurner were especially disruptive to this site because, while FeedBurner still works, it no longer has some key functionality that was very important to some of this site's readership. Specifically, FeedBurner was especially effective in distributing posts published here by email. In fact, when Google made the change, I pledged I would keep looking for a service to assist you, my readers. I am happy to report that I found such a service!

As you can see, FeedRabbit delivered a recent post directly
to my inbox without any ads or issues. Pretty good for free! is perhaps the best and simplest means of working a subscription by e-mail service. Their site is very intuitive and easy to use, and best of all, its basic service is free! You are welcome to continue enjoying the site both by email or directly. And as ever, direct your feed reader or FeedRabbit to this RSS link: You can still use FeedBurner as well, of course.
