ULC SEMINARY NEW FEATURE!!
Universal Life Church News Feed!
The ULC Seminary has a new feature! It's called RSS, which stands for Real Simple Syndication.
I know that a lot of you don't necessarily have time to visit the ULC Seminary site as often as you'd like, but you still want to be kept up to date with the latest news, sermons, products, etc. So now we have a solution!
You can put our RSS newsfeed onto your personal webpage. I don't mean you have to have a website, but rather the free personalized webpage that is available through Google, Yahoo, MSN and AOL.
To add the newsfeed to your personalized page, go to www.ulcseminary.org/blog and scroll to the bottom.
There you will find small boxes at the bottom to add the feed. The feed address, if required (Google requires it) is below:
For your convenience, I have added the buttons on the front page of the site as well. Just click the appropriate button and follow the instructions. I personalized my MyYahoo page as well as a Google page for myself.
To make a personalized Google page, I went to www.google.com and clicked the 'personalized home page' button at the top. I created a free account, then added content. The above feed link is what I used. I edited my Google page to allow as many feeds to show as we currently have.
As we add more feeds, you can allow more to show. Yahoo allows up to 30 to show at once, which will give you access to a lot of information. You can also edit it to show the blurb.
If you are having trouble, find the button on your personalized page that says, "Add Content". The feed listed above is the content you want to add. Just copy and paste it into the box.
The feeds update daily or more often as the mood strikes. Sometimes it will update several times a day. You'll get a headline of the article and you can decide if it interests you. If you'd like a short summary of the article, you can edit your preferences to show that.
I hope you get a chance to take advantage of this opportunity. We, at the seminary, are doing everything we can to keep you up to date and informed. We'll be posting the announcements on the feed, as well as the site itself, along with any new training segments, articles, products and more.
