Get alerted when we post news
Editor at Large
Some people want to know about Lakeland news as soon as we publish it. We appreciate those people and have three ways they can get notified instantly when we publish articles:
Desktop notifications. These are brand new to us this month. Users can sign up to get notified on their computers as soon as we post news. This isn’t set up for mobile yet, but we hope to put something similar in place for our many readers who read our news on their phones or tablets.
To sign up, all you have to do is load any page on lkldnow.com from a desktop computer. A box appears at the top center of the page that includes our logo and says, “Get Lakeland news as soon as we post it. It’s free. You can unsubscribe at any time.”
- Tip 1: Click “Allow” if you want the notifications. Click “Cancel” if you don’t.
- Tip 2: If you click “Allow,” you no longer see the small box when you come to LkldNow.com.
- Tip 3: If you start getting the notifications and decide you no longer want them, it’s easy to unsubscribe by clicking the small orange bell in the lower right-hand corner of our pages.
Instant email alerts. Get an email every time we post an article. One advantage is this works for desktop AND mobile users. Sign up here. If that seems like too many emails, you can also sign up for a daily summary; it is sent shortly after 7 p.m. any day we publish news. And of course, we have our weekly news summary — which you are reading right now.
RSS. If you don’t recognize this term, don’t worry. It was the next big thing back in the early 2000s. Though you may not know the term RSS, it works behind the scenes in a lot of services you see online. For the tech-minded people who still use RSS readers, our feed can be found here.
