Thanks for your help timethief! I found your blog a couple weeks ago through this forum since you help out so many people. It has been very informative.
I am using this blog for a private work blog to post and discuss work topics. So all 6 followers are also Administrators. We currently do not use any RSS feed readers in our office, leaving email the only way to alert each other of new posts. We do tell each other verbally to check the blog but would like to have an alert as backup.
Like I said in my first post, there are users who do not need to receive alerts for certain Categories. From your response and a little research it seems that it would be impossible to set up without having everyone install a RSS feed reader.
My current solution is that I should just create a separate blog. I am not concerned about getting followers or readers, so do you think that this would be the best solution?
