Summer Camp is going well. It is week four right now, so we are almost half way done with the summer. Please keep all of us (Beth and I,the resident staff at NLR, summer staff, campers, etc.) in your prayers. There has been some sickness going around which we need protection from. Pray for the summer staff that they would have energy and endurance to finish out the summer strong!
Well, you found it! We thought a little introduction to this blog might be good.
We have found that we are not very good at keeping people updated about what is going on in our lives and at camp. It’s not that we don’t want to…but we don’t do well getting newsletters, email, etc out. We are going to continue to try, but hopefully this will be a great way for us to let you know how & what we’re doing here at camp more often. We hope to update frequently, so keep checking back for new posts!
RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication. RSS is a simple way to keep track of when new content is published to web sites that use RSS. It works like this: A subscriber (that can be anybody with an internet connection) uses an RSS reader to subscribe to RSS feeds. The reader then monitors the feeds for changes. When a change occurs the reader lets the user (that’s you!) know that there is new content available. For example, if you wanted to monitor this blog for new posts you would first have find a feed reader (I have listed a few below). Then you would click on the RSS link at the bottom of this page. You will end up on a funny looking page that is not really very readable, but the important part is the address in the address bar on your browser. This is the address of the feed for this blog. You would then copy this address into your feed reader to subscribe. Then, every time we make a new post you will be notified through the reader.
As you are using the various web sites that you visit everyday watch for little orange icons like these: , and . These icons indicate that that site offers an RSS feed which you might want to subscribe to. There are many RSS readers available. Here are a few to check out:Feedreader, Sharpreader, Newsgator, and myYahoo.
