The Bloglet explanation:

Bloglet is a ser­vice that allows you to set up a mail­ing list that will inform sub­scribers of new posts to your jour­nal. sam­bear want­ed to know when I and oth­er peo­ple close to him post so he could go read the posts, and that’s the only thing I’ve found that might accom­plish that auto­mat­i­cal­ly, so I set it up for a test.

There’s a sub­scrip­tion link in my user info. Any­one who sub­scribes to it gets an email with the text of pub­lic entries I make. It isn’t imme­di­ate, though—it gets updat­ed when­ev­er LJ gets around to updat­ing the RSS feed for the jour­nal. And it won’t do the friends-only or pri­vate posts, even if the sub­scriber is some­one on my friends list.

So it isn’t a per­fect solu­tion at all, but I haven’t found any­thing that works bet­ter for what Sam wants yet. Sug­ges­tions are appre­ci­at­ed. What would be much bet­ter would be instant alerts when­ev­er a cho­sen list of peo­ple update, rather than even­tu­al alerts when peo­ple who have sub­scribed to Bloglet make pub­lic posts. I don’t know if I’ll keep Bloglet enabled or not.
