As we prep for the new ChronicBabe site, we're shutting down the bits.
It was nice while it lasted! But the new stream-lined ChronicBabe.com won't have news items per se - although Editrix Jenni will be writing about newsworthy stuff. Just wanted you to know that we haven't forgotten about this feature...we're just letting it rest. Thanks!

Your Editrix has had a little bout of depression the past two days. Rough stuff. But Kid President is helping a lot. Enjoy!
In preparation for 2014 and ObamaCare:
This handy-dandy tool shows you how ObamaCare will impact YOUR health insurance situation.
A look at "sick lit"
Some folks are freaked out by it. We feel empowered by it. XO Jane contributor S.E. Smith gives us the lowdown on "sick lit."
What are news feeds? News feeds provide an easy way to keep current on ChronicBabe postings. Perhaps the easiest way to do this is by using a browswer that supports news feeds, like Firefox. Just look for this little guy (often in the bottom right corner), give it a click, and select a feed (like "Subscribe to RSS"). This will add a folder to your bookmarks that will update itself with the most recent articles:
Other options include News Reading programs that you can download to your computer. They sit on your desktop, and keep you updated with the latest posts. A couple recommended ones are Feed-Demon (Windows) and Net-News-Wire (Mac). The benefits of using these programs are that they are smarter then web browsers - you can set them to update themselves regularly, and also, you can subscribe to both Chronic Articles AND ChronicBits by simply copying the following feeds into your news reader:
When you open them in your feed reader, you'll see something like this:
Happy news reading!
