I am a big fan of e-mail newsletters. For me, it feels like a more direct connection with the authors I am interested in.
The best newsletters are those that seem especially curated, containing not only links to the author's latest content but other selected content around the topic. Beyond RSS (which I use a lot as well), it is a nice way to keep track of all new interesting content out there.
The TFA Newsletter will provide you with the latest content of this site, as well as selected links about architecture and travel.
