We warned you from the get-go that this blog would never be cutting edge. (Our new site makes us look more professional than we are.) So it shouldn’t surprise you that it’s taken us four and a half years—but you can finally subscribe to girltalk via email.

rss buttonTo subscribe, click on the RSS button at the top of the page, choose “Get girltalk delivered by email” and follow the directions.

Of course you can also follow girltalk via facebook, twitter, or RSS feed.

Still don’t know how to use an RSS reader? That’s OK, neither did Mom until I showed her this little video.

Mom’s inspired to set up her own reader and subscribe to her favorite blogs today!

You too can bring girltalk home to your computer. But be sure to keep visiting us here to see our ever-changing decor. We’ll keep a seat for ya!

A Public Service Announcement

2009 at 11:42 am   |   by Janelle Bradshaw Filed under Fun & Encouragement | Girltalkers

Today I want to tell you about our newly improved search engine. It has a unique feature that I think you’re really gonna like. When you search for something, you most likely will find it.

Amazing. I know.

As many of you remember, the search engine on our previous site was worthless. You couldn’t find a thing. It became a family joke: we couldn’t even find our own posts on our own blog!

Then in June we got this beautiful new site and a search engine that worked; but it was only good for searching post titles, which was not a huge improvement.

But it’s a new day here at girltalk. Today we have a search engine that actually works and searches the entire site. You can search by topic or keyword. By name, number, or favorite food.

For example, I’m sure a lot of you have been waiting to search “Janelle.” Now you can! I tried and I got 593 results.

I also tried searching “candy.” Hmmm…only 24 results. I can see that I’m going to have to work on getting more candy-related material for the site.

See what fun you can have with our new search engine? In all seriousness, we hope it serves you and helps you find what you are looking for.

And stay tuned. We’ve got more exciting new features in the works!
