Get Email and RSS Updates of USDAA News and Events
19 Oct 2009
A number of months ago I made a request via the USDAA email list for an RSS feed for the News and Events page.
That page is updated with generally useful information a couple times a month and I don’t know anyone who remembers to check it. The response I received was my request would be passed along; looking at the recent updates to their website so far no RSS feed is yet available.
So I was going to write some software to extract the links from the page so I could create an RSS feed so anyone who was interested could be informed of new USDAA news items. Turns out there are free services that provide just what I needed: Feed43 made extracing the news story titles and links trivial and Feedburner made providing the RSS and email subscriptions easy.
- If you use an RSS feed reader: USDAA-NewsEvents
- To get email updates: Subscribe to USDAA - News & Events by Email. Don't forget to look for the email response in your email inbox - you have to accept the response to get email updates.
Hopefully the USDAA will provide these feeds soon.
If you are an AKC competitor you might also be interested in a similar service for the AKC website.
