Subscribe options using IFTTT

I have recently added a couple of subscribe options to my blog, which if you’re viewing this on my site directly, and not via RSS, then you’ll see in the sidebar on the right.

Currently I don’t want to manage my own email list, so I’ve set up a couple of recipes on IFTTT.

If you’ve not heard of it before, IFTTT stands for “IF This Then That”, and essentially it allows you to create workflows where a trigger can perform an action.  In their words…

IFTTT is the free way to get all your apps and devices talking to each other. Not everything on the internet plays nice, so we’re on a mission to build a more connected world.

I have created two recipes for you to try out:

Send me an email when Rik Lewis blogs

This one is configured so that the trigger is the RSS feed of my blog, and when a new item is detected then the action is to send you an email.

Send me a notification when Rik Lewis blogs

This one is configured so that the trigger is the RSS feed of my blog, and when a new item is detected then the action is to send you an app notification.

If you don’t already have an IFTTT account, I would really recommend getting one, as it is so useful to be able to link up accounts, trigger notifications for pretty much anything you could want to monitor, and so much more.  There are loads of published recipes that you can activate for yourself, or you can build you own custom ones.

I hope you find these useful, if you’re interested in reading more of my blog posts in the future.
