Subscribing to Roz Wound Up—A Test

January 28, 2015


Above: A gouache sketch from my 11 x 14 inch Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Hardcover journal. Sorry for the less than sharp image. It's incredibly difficult to scan this journal because it's so large and I have to piece the scans together. I wanted to show you this sketch because it was loose and fun, but I didn't have time to scan and stitch it up. It started as a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch and then I added mixes of English Red, Dark Blue Indigo, and Titanium White—and yes I went a bit crazy with my highlights; I was coughing a lot, what can I say. The pink in the background is Montana Acrylic Marker. Click on the image to view an enlargement, even it a somewhat fuzzy one.

So many people have been asking me how to subscribe to my blog and telling me that they can't use the RSS links provided at the bottom of the left-hand column that I investigated a little bit last night and seem to have found a way to create a subscription "widget" through FeedBurner. 

I really have no idea if this will work. I'm clueless about this stuff and couldn't find a straightforward explanation of it all.

You'll find the subscription widget in the left-hand column just below "my blog's search engine" and the "tweet" and "follow me on twitter" links; just above the "Categories list."

If you are one of those readers who has asked about this possibility in the past, please take a moment to click on subscribe and tell me if over the next two weeks if it works for you. I would appreciate it.

In the meantime I'll go back to writing posts, which is something I know how to do…Tomorrow there will be another installment on the Hand•Book Journal Review.

    This image has a different kind of lines as your usual ones it seems but I love it all the same. The highlights and the angular lines make it all very fresh and original. Like Springtime is on the corner. Very handsome fellow by the way.

    Roxane, I think what you’re seeing is that the lines are all pretty much covered. I haven’t been able to paint (really paint) for a couple years (for a host of reasons) and this is more a painting than a drawing. Also what you’re seeing is the filbert at work, big broad flat strokes. I’m glad you still enjoyed it.

    Yep, thanks for clarification, I guessed that. Sometimes our fingers and brains don’t type in unison.

    Subscribing worked…thanks!
    I still can’t figure out why I can’t comment on your facebook posts, another task for another day. Its all good.
    Love reading your blog.

    Yeah Lydia, so glad that is working.

    As for Facebook I’m sorry that doesn’t work for you. (I have absolutely NO idea how Facebook works.) And I’ve set everything to public because it is a public account (I friend students and business associates etc. so everything there is open).

    You’re on your own working with FB.

    But I’m glad the subscription thingy worked!

    Another very easy way for readers using FEEDLY and oher RSS readers is to simply copy and past exactly that into

    This may? skew your feedburner totals but it will allow anyone to subscribe if they prefer RSS over email inbox. 🙂

    Owen, thanks for the tip about Feedly. I went to check it out and am playing around with it.
