HCR -- The Health Care Blog

When comments are left at some places (not enough, unfortunately) the system enables the commentator to receive a notice by email when someone else leaves a comment at the same place. For instance, Facebook has this feature so when you leave a comment at one of your friends' posts you receive a notification when your comment gets a "Like" or someone else leaves a comment.

After several years of reading and commenting at The Health Care Blog I just today bothered to click the "manage your subscriptions" link that comes with every email notice. I was amazed to discover that my list is much longer than I imagined. I'm putting it here in case I need to refer to it sometime, but also to enable curious readers to explore some of the endless trails I have explored. (My Web activity is my post-retirement hobby in the same way that care-giving is a post-retirement job and ministry. And Hootsbuddy's New Place is like a collection of stamps or model cars that anyone who wants to can admire (and read) if they want, but it's okay to regard this place with the same detachment you might have for a scrapbook or display cabinet full of collectibles.)

The Health Care Blog Comment Subscription ManagerSubscriptions
hootsbuddie@yahoo.com subscribed to the posts listed below. The list begins in February, 2011 but I think my participation there started prior to that. Perhaps that is when the current subscription management system was put into use.
