You can even publish your messages to your website or blog by inserting some HTML code. Go to the "My Widgets" screen to access the code you'll need to insert.

Here is a quick sample of how you might use on your own website:
Notice I also added a feed from my class blog into the right column. These widgets will allow one stop shopping for all of my communications.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more more info or help setting your up.
