    RSS, tickers and widgets, oh my!

    Posted by: Chris

    Rss_symbol_2 A few weeks ago, I made my big gay announcement about Gay News Watch, a new website that compiles, sorts and customizes all the gay news and views from the U.S., Europe and worldwide. I'm very pleased to say that traffic has been better than anticipated for a start-up project, and is growing every day.

    Several of you commented at the time, however, that you were disappointed you couldn't subscribe to Gay News Watch via RSS feed. Well, be disappointed no longer. Starting today, an RSS subscription is available, either by going to the site and clicking on the RSS symbol in your browser URL window, or simply by clicking here, or if you want more info first, by going here.

    Gnw_ticker_2 But that's not even the most exciting part.  I've partnered with a fantastic company called MuseStorm to create headline ticker "widgets" that you can use to add Gay News Watch headlines to your blog, website or MySpace-type online profile.  You can see an example in the right column here, which I created using my own design, background, text color and size specs.

    You can create your own Gay News Watch widget by going here.  The ticker will scroll the last 20 headlines on Gay News Watch, which means you'll always be displaying the breaking news from the last 24 hours.  So by simply pasting a snippet of code into your blog, website or online profile, you can be your own gay news service.

    And even that's not all. (OK, I'm starting to sound like a QVC salesman, so sue me.)  With a click of your mouse you can also create Gay News Watch  headline ticker desktop widgets, either from Yahoo by going here, or from Google by going here.

    There's more good stuff where that came from.  Soon you'll be able to download Gay News Watch desktop widgets for your Mac Dashboard, Vista Gadget, mobile phone and even your favorite instant message application.

    OK enough with the sales claptrap. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…
