Sunday Update & Blogging 101

We can't thank you enough for your continued support for Ryan. Your visits, texts, support and prayers help him so much. He has been very tired this weekend and has been resting a lot. I wanted to point out a couple of different ways you can continue to support Ryan. You can leave comments for him through several different sites...you can always comment after each post that is written here on his blog. Just click on the green "comments" tab below the post and a screen will come up to type your message. If you don't have a google/blogger account, then you can click on "Name/URL" to type your name so Ryan knows who wrote the comment. Another way to comment is on Barry's photo website [link to the right - "Photos of Ryan"]. There's an "Add Comment" button below the pictures that you can add comments. And, there is also Ryan's Caring Bridge site [link to the right - "Caring Bridge Website"] that you can write comments in the Guestbook section. Click on "Sign My Guestbook" and follow the directions to leave comments. Make sure you sign your name to the comments so Ryan knows who left the message. Ryan does have access and reads the blog and these sites. So, let's shower him with our messages and thoughts for him.

Also, while Ryan is at Children's Hospital, you can also send him an E-Card [Room 5316]. These cards are delivered every weekday to him. This is a quick and easy way to send him a card.

If you'd like to be able to retrieve the daily updates from this blog, enter your email address in the box to the right where the "Subscribe" button is located. New messages posted to this blog will be sent directly to your email every morning between 5:00-7:00am. Soon after you type in your email address and click "Subscribe", a link will be sent directly to your email account. You must click on this link for the daily messages to come to your email inbox going forward. You may have to check your spam filter if you don't receive this link in your inbox. There are a couple of you that have signed up for the Email subscription but haven't clicked on the link yet...so you may want to check your spam filter for this or you can re-register.

Again, thank you all so much. It has been so wonderful to see the outpouring of love you have given to Ryan and to all of his family. Be sure to check out this weekends photos, including photos with Dee Miller, former Ohio State receiver. Thank you.

When I subscribed, the 'verification' email got put into my spam folder. Just open the email from 'confirmations' and subject, 'Activate your email subscription to: Ryan's Fight - Refuse to Lose!' click on the link to verify and you are all set. If there are any updates posted to the blog, you will get an automated email about 6:00 a.m. each morning with the article.
