Subscribe to a Blog

If you would like to subscribe to a blog to be notified about new posts, comments, and other changes to blog content, use one of the following two options:

Icon-AlertMe Configure a SharePoint alert

  • You can configure alerts for multiple blogs.
  • Site Members and Visitors will receive blog alerts after the content has been approved.
  • Site Administrators and Moderators will also receive alerts for blog content having a pending status.

Icon-RSS Subscribe to the RSS feed for a blog

You can subscribe to the RSS feed for a blog just as you can for any other SharePoint list. Follow the instructions above for creating a SharePoint alert, but click on the RSS Feed button instead of Alert Me. In the RSS Feed page, click Subscribe to this feed.
