If you would like to stay up to date with my Blog, the easiest way is to subscribe to my RSS feed. RSS is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites. In the ‘old days’ of the web to keep track of updates on a website you had to ‘bookmark’ the website in your browser and manually return to it on a regular basis to see what had been added.

Issues with bookmarking:

  1. You end up surfing and doing all the work trying to track many websites at once.
  2. You may miss information if you don’t check your bookmarks many times throughout the day.
  3. For sites that don’t get updated very often, you’ll see the same content over and over.

What Is RSS?

RSS Is an easy way for a website/blog to let you know every time they are updated. RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’ and you might hear it described as a ‘news feed’ that you subscribe to.

RSS is a technology that provides you with a method of getting up to date information sent directly to you that you can read in your own time – no more bookmarking and looking for websites that have been updated. It saves you time and sends you the information you want immediately after it is published.

The subscription part of RSS can be thought of like subscribing to a magazine that is delivered to you periodically. Instead of it arriving to your physical mail box, it’s published and then delivered to your ‘RSS Reader’ every time your favorite website/blog is updated.

How the RSS technology actually works is a whole other lesson (for another day), so the key today is for you to understand why it’s good and how to use it.

How To Use RSS

The first thing you’ll want to do if you’re getting into reading sites via RSS is to hook yourself up with an RSS Feed Reader. Google Reader (www.google.com/reader) is an excellent free and easy to use web based reader. There are many to choose from, but Google Reader will be a good start for you to work out the basics of RSS.
