Why not just use the RSS feeds. It's in XML format so you can phrase any thing you want to watch for. i sure there are even programs that can check and track rss feeds for strings to watch for.
Thanks. I'm curious to learn what RSS feeds are.
I doubt it will help me with my little problem. The suggestions made here so far all seem to be solutions for a slightly different type of problem.
I want to post one or two chapters from my WIP soon, as a teaser. I will not post any more for many months or years, until after the entire story is ready to go. I want to make a blog post explaining that it will be a long time before any more of the incomplete story is posted.
Ideally, I would like readers who enjoyed my teaser to know how they can do a few, simple steps now to create something that will alert them when I start posting the entire story. If I suggest anything it must be some set-and-forget action they can do now. This will not be a problem for premier members. They'll already know better than me how to use their My Library feature to achieve that.
The only thing I can think of for non-premier members is to offer that if they send me a message with the word 'Like' or their email address, I will make the effort, once I am ready to resume posting, to contact them personally with an alert.

Whether they will solve this particular problem or not, I am curious. What do RSS feeds do? Where are they? How do I use them to set up reminders to myself? ...
Thanks in advance, Ross.
