Following up on my recent post on the iPad app 'Blogshelf', the kind folks who developed the app contacted me to indicate it is possible to subscribe to a Typepad-hosted blog and have the most recent blog entry's first photo appear in the icon simply by subscribing to the RSS feed. So all is good in the RSS subscription world and Blogshelf.
And those kind developers included an Interior Design section in their recommended sites for their Blogshelf application. This is why I embrace technology. The word can spread pretty quickly.
