Home > Blog & Mailing List
With grateful thanks to Roger Lovegrove, a fellow ‘One Namer’, for much of the Mailing List text on this page.
There are two ways in which you can keep in touch with ongoing research on this One-Name Study. You can either subscribe to the Mailing List, where I (and others) occasionally post items of interest, or you can read my Hollyer Blog, where I try to post information about the research activities I've done and the people who have contacted me.
Blog is a contraction of the term Web Log. This is an online diary or journal which is published and shared with others on the web by an individual, who is known as a 'blogger'. 'Blogging' has now become a very popular publishing method on the web. Items are usually posted daily and readers can add their own comments and reactions to them. The Hollyer Blog can be found here.
It is also possible to read the Hollyer blog through a News Reader or Aggregator, using RSS syndication. If you want to do this, right click on the orange RSS symbol and copy the URL ('Copy Shortcut'), then paste as a new channel into your news reader.
If you have no idea what RSS is and want to know more, the BBC's explanation is one of the better ones I've found. However, let me stress that you can just read the Blog by going to the web page, you don't have to use RSS.
Another way to set up your RSS reader, which provides more help, can be found here.
Here is a preview of the Blog using its RSS feed:
A mailing list is an easy way for people to discuss a common interest on-line. Many people correspond with a circle of correspondents by setting up a "group e-mail list", so that a single click on the group name will send an e-mail to all the people in that group. The problem with this is that everyone has to set up their own group, and alter it whenever someone joins or leaves.
A mailing list is just the same, except that it's maintained on a central computer rather than on individuals' computers. This means that someone can join or leave a mailing list, or change their e-mail address, without all of the other members having to do anything. As with groups, members just address their correspondence to one e-mail address and it automatically gets sent to all of the other members.
I run a HOLLYER mailing list to support my study. This is not just for Hollyer, but Holyer and Hollier also. To join the list, just click below and when an e-mail appears just send it off. Don't worry about the word "subscribe" that appears in the e-mail: this is just the precise terminology that all mailing lists seem to use - it just means "join", and will not cost you anything. You will then be added to the mailing list and - once you have received the welcoming message - any e-mail that you address to:-
will be automatically circulated to all members of the mailing list without your having to worry about who they are.
Use the mailing list to:-
I hope that you will join the list and send your correspondence to the list rather than just to me - there are many other experts out there who may be able to assist.
Unless you send a message to the list, your own e-mail address remains private and is not visible to other list members. Outsiders to the list cannot use the list, so you don't need to worry about receiving 'spam'. However, I hope that you will send a "hello" message to the list, to introduce yourself and your interests.
To do this
|Subscribe to (join) the list||Click here and then send the resulting e-mail off.|
|Unsubscribe from (leave) the list||Click here and then send the resulting e-mail off.|
| Send a "Hello" message
|Click here and then complete the message in your own way.|
|Send a message to the list||Address an e-mail to HOLLYER@rootsweb.com|
|Read the List Archive||Click here.|
|PLEASE NOTE The list is unmoderated - whatever someone sends to it gets circulated. There is no centralised control. This means that everyone needs to pay conscious attention to good manners at all times: not that HOLLYER researchers need to be told this, of course!|
