Welcome New Viewers and How To Stay in Touch with Ewa in the Garden?

Recently I see many new viewers at Ewa in the Garden, so I would like to welcome YOU and say that I am very happy to see you coming. I hope to deliver YOU a great reading and great pictures, so YOU decide to come back.
I would like to give you a little tour around the blog, so you will feel more comfortable in finding most valuable posts and stay in touch with me in different ways.

How to find most interesting stuff?

Archive - on the left sidebar you can see the archive of the blog, so you may search what was posted in each month since November 2007.

Searchbox - on the left top, over the header, you can see search box on the navbar. You may type any word of any subject you are interested, hit the search button and you will get the list of all posts including that word. I write about it, because I know that many people tend to not see this box and disregarding that section of the blog.

Labels - under each post there are labels. If you specifically are interested with any of them, just hit it and you will get all posts labelled with that keyword.

Best posts - as on every blog there are posts that are preferred by readers more than others. On the left sidebar you will find the list of posts most read in last 7 days. One of the best performing posts from the beginning of my blogging are:

Blogroll - there is a lot of great reading from all over the world in the blogroll on the left sidebar.

How to stay updated with the new posts on Ewa in the Garden?

RSS reader - is used to publish frequently updated blog posts in a standardized format. RSS document is called a "feed", "web feed" or "channel". It includes summarized text. You can benefit using it if you want to subscribe to timely updates. Clicking an orange RSS icon in a browser initiates the subscription process. After you subscribe to a RSS feed the reader checks the favourite blog feeds regularly (usually once a day) for new blog enties and provides it to your monitor. In order to read it you have to click yellow star on your browser (favourites) and look for boomarked feeds.

Subscribe by email - is most convenient way to get all updated, because once you enter email address, you receive notifications straight to your e-mail box once a day. After you enter your e-mail address, there is a need to confirm your subscription by clicking a link within an e-mail you will receive from feedburner. This blog is syndicating only short summary of the post. This is changing with time. If you subscribe, you will notice the change in your mail box. Unsubscribing is also easy - you can do it without any hassle anytime.

Add to favourites - add Ewa in the Garden to the list of your favourite sites (menu button on your browser), so you may return to it whenever you wish and never loose track of it.

Hi Ewa - I just subbed with Bloglines and spent some time clicking around today. I had to click over and look at the terrace garden on the slope - I must say this is the first time I've ever felt lucky for having a slope! Hope to visit more often.
