Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

How to grab the RSS feed from a Blogger tag

How to get an update whenever a new post on Blogger is tagged with a keyword of interest

Blogger calls tags on posts 'labels' for some reason, though it doesn't appear to have cottoned on for the need for categories as well (or I've not found out how to do that).

The labels for this post are howto (as in 'how to' do something), RSS and tags and can be seen below.

If you were interested in getting an RSS feed that would let you keep an eye only on the posts on this blog that included 'how to' instructions for something, the link you'd want would be:

http://brodiesnotes.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/howto

Generic version http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/labelname
- put the relevant blog name in the bit in bold and change the labelname bit to the tag / label of your choice.

You can add this feed URL to any RSS reader that you use (for automatic updating purposes) or just bookmark it and view it periodically in a web browser (no use for automatic updating of course but it still gives you the information).


This useful tip came from a Google search resulting in

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
