RA Warrior's Site Reactions, part 2

Thank you for the many inspiring comments and emails. These last two weeks have been like a whirlwind. One day, I decided I just couldn’t wait any longer. I still do not have all my ducks in a row, but here we are anyway.

I have been working on my cool new RA website for a few months, whenever I get time. And I am closer than ever to getting that online and this blog will be a big part of it. Thanks to you who are getting on board from the very beginning.

There have been a few questions about how to best participate here on the blog. You can do as you like:

Click on “comment” below a story. Write inside the comment box. Write as much as you like. Click “post comment.” I will reply as soon as I am able to do so.

Blogs use “followers” to add credibility. It helps other readers know that people find this blog useful. You can either follow publicly or privately – and with or without a picture of you or your dog. ;D Just click on “follow this blog” and you will be prompted.

This is just a way to make it easier for you to remember to read the blog every day. It’s like a newspaper subscription – only free. There are a few ways you can subscribe to Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior:

If you click on the “Atom” link at the bottom of the page, you will open a window to subscribe via RSS (that’s Really Simple Syndication). Just click on “Subscribe to this feed.” Then, a little permission window from your own computer will ask you to confirm; press “Subscribe.” Now, if you check your RSS feeds through whatever gadget you use (or in your “Favorites – Feeds” tab, you’ll see Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior there.

If you prefer, you can just “bookmark” this site with your “Add Favorites” tab and then use it every day. ;D

If you press the “share” button, you will see different ways that you can refer others to this blog. If you choose “email” you can email a link to Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior to friends. And you can even add your message, if you like. The other things (such as Digg) are ways to vote for RA Warrior as a good blog or post a link to us on another site (like Facebook). That is just to help more people find this blog. I will continue to try to make it easier and I appreciate your suggestions.

If you need to contact me directly, you can email me at Soon, you will be able to enter your own email onto my site, so that you can receive updates periodically from Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior.

Soon I will finally have the Profile page completed. Thank you for your patience.

Bee Sting
Finally, yes, I did my shots yesterday and the other kind of site reaction continues also. I appreciate your concern and prayers as I try to unsubscribe to my bee sting. ;D
