e-mail feed added

There has been some discussion on the blogs recently (here too) about the use of e-mail feeds instead of the orange lozenge "RSS" feeds for blog readers. This seems easier than having two, overlapping RSS/Atom type feeds. So, we have replaced one of the feeds at Asia Business News with one which should generate an e-mail for you each time we add a new post.

We're using Feedblitz for this. I will be interested in any comments you might have on that.

Creating a corporate BLOG

This blog has been created, at the excellent suggestion of fellow blogger Hugo E. Martin, to complement our news and opinions site. It will be updated more intermittently and will contain just information about our own company activities or those of our clients.
