That's the idea. There's already RSS, but most people don't know how to use that yet. Tried a couple of addresses and it really didn't seem stable, so it's down at the moment. I may take another look later on.
The RSS runs fine. Hit the URL and you can one-click include it into just about evey major web RSS reader, as well as importing it into desktop clients. It's FeedBlitz, which should take copies of the feed and mail them out, which was causing problems - things like saying that email addresses were too long/invalid, or passwords not working. Never mind.
I can't get the SOS banner on my site. I use this yucky website software from my hosting company. Should I download an image from somewhere and put a link next to it?
And while we are on the subject, I am reasonably happy with the content of my website, but the design is so blech. It's template driven, and the templates are pretty bland. I took an html class eons ago, and don't have time to become an expert, but I need something that's a little more flexible and interesting. Any suggestions?
These days, it's often best to start with a blog tool (even if you don't use it as a blog) and customise the theme around it. I'd recommend WordPress for small sites. In addition to all the blogging stuff, it has full support for individual pages on your site, with a nice interface for adding new content rather than having to actually open up templates and manually push words into them.
As for design, the single best thing you can do is learn to design with CSS. It's got some...uh....interesting quirks, but it's mostly logical and the premise is pretty easy - cut up your page into its individual segments and components and tell the computer what they're all going to look like. If you look here - http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp - you'll get a good primer.
