ASDWA Subscriptions: Help and FAQs

ASDWA Weekly Update

ASDWA’s Weekly Update is a great way to consolidate all of our news and event announcements into a single, weekly, email delivered every Friday at the end of the business day. In addition to national drinking water headlines, subscribers now have the option to add sections to their Update that pull from any of our other news blogs. If you have any questions about managing your subscription, feel free to contact Anthony of ASDWA directly at aderosa(at)asdwa.org.

ASDWA News Blogs

While some of us have used blogs before and may be familiar with the basics, others may want a little instruction on how to get the most out of things.  To get started, here are a few resources to help out.

About News Blogs

What if I’m stranded on an island with nothing but my smartphone or tablet?  …can I still access important ASDWA information? Of course!  Not only are ASDWA News Blogs mobile-friendly – you can go directly to the URL in any mobile browser – but all of you Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and tablet users can download the Wordpress App from their respective marketplaces.  Just do a quick search for “Wordpress”, download the official app to your mobile device of choice, and start adding your favorite blogs for fast access.  Alternatively, you could add the RSS Feed [http://[blog title].asdwa.org/feed] to your mobile device’s RSS Reader to keep track of the News that way.  Here’s a load of information on the different apps that you can get for Wordpress Blogs, if you’d like to learn more: http://en.support.wordpress.com/apps/.

If you’re a Flipboard user, feel free to contact Anthony at ASDWA for tips on setting up a custom Flipboard for any ASDWA blog.
