Add Pulse of the Heart to your News

If you use a newsreader, you are way ahead of most internet users. If you don't, it may be time, for in 2006 we may all be entering the "feedosphere."

The reality is that millions of online users are already reading feeds. They're just not aware of it.

Once you download your reader, add Pulse of the Heart to your newsreader. Just click on site feed in the right-hand column of the home page, and paste the URL into your newsreader when requested to add a new source.

Then, tell your friends if they need some assistance, you'd love to add blogs and feeds to their aggregators. :-)
