For fifteen years, A List Apart has published long-form magazine articles written by the whip-smart web community (AKA you). But we don’t always have grand, 2,000-word arguments to make. Sometimes we just want to tell you about a new technique, share an article, or post a quick note.
And that’s what you’ll see here: short posts and interesting links from our staff and contributors.
You got blog in my RSS
A few of you noted that your RSS readers have been heaving under the weight of the new ALA. Don’t worry! We had some RSS hiccups during launch. Expect about a blog post or two a day, more or less, from here on out.
Starting now, you can also select from two RSS subscription options:
- All content, which includes articles from our issues (usually two articles every other Tuesday), columns like this one from Karen McGrane (about once a week), and our blog posts.
- Articles and columns only, without the blog posts.
A word from our sponsors
If this redesign says anything, it’s that we care about reading—and we don’t want advertising (or anything else) to get in the way.
That won’t change.
But we do need to cover our costs—mostly paying our staff and contributors a small honorarium for their countless hours of work—so we’re going to start including a sponsor on our RSS feed. (If you read Daring Fireball, it’ll look a lot like that.) Much like The Deck ads we already run on ALA, we’ll only accept sponsors that offer something we think is relevant, and it’ll never be intrusive.
Have a blog post idea?
The best way to tell us is to tweet it @alistapart.
Please only e-mail us about feature article submissions—we can only sift through our inbox a couple times a week, and we don’t want your awesome idea to get lost in a pile of press releases.
Also, please, please don’t send us any more press releases.
