I have signed up for a feature on Lodinews.com and several other newspaper websites that I just love — email headlines.

The Washington Post keeps me up-to-the-minute by emailing news headlines as soon as they go up online. The Sentinel and the Record occasionally post breaking news. The New York Times sends a message once a day after the paper is printed and so does the Sentinel.

I also have signed up for headlines from websites about the newspaper industry.

What do I get out of this constant stream of news? For example, as soon as it was announced, I found out that that Russia is boosting its economy by letting business owners out of prison and that the Lodi library is lending free language learning programs.

Here's how you sign up on Lodinews.com to keep up with what's happening in our area.

1) Scroll down the Lodinews.com home page all the way— ALL the way —  to the bottom. Look for the link to "Mailing list," shown in the first image, above. Click on the button where I put the red arrow.

2. Now you're on the registration/log-in page. You have three choices:

• If you have registered on Lodinews.com, put in your user name or e-mail address and password.

• If you haven't registered, just do it — one more online registration won't kill you.

• If you're a print subscriber and want to start up a free online subscription, the easiest thing to do is to call the circulation department between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and Lainie or Amparo will talk you through linking your print subscritpion to your online identity.

3. Ater logging in, you should be on the "My Notifications" page. Check whether you want daily headlines, breaking news headlines or local sports headlines. You're done.

Now keep an eye on your e-mail to know what's going on in the bigger world — bigger than just your Facebook friends, that is.
