It's nice that people publish all sorts of information, but constantly checking a web site to see if there's new stuff is horribly inefficient and further clogging up an already overworked email inbox with new notifications doesn't work for me. The solution I've landed on is adding an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed to my Outlook for those things I want to follow closely. They appear as sub-folders, just like "Sent Mail" and "Deleted Items", keeping that information stream together and apart.
This is particularly useful for team spaces such as SharePoint, allowing you to see when new documents are available, regardless of what area of the SharePoint it was added to. You can also add this blog to Outlook using its feed link http://paulsdailyposts.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default.
