Information on RSS Feeds

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. The content you choose (called a "feed") is delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages.

Generally you will need to install an RSS Reader which is is a small software program that collects and displays RSS feeds. It allows you to scan headlines and articles received from a number of news sources.  Some browsers, such as the current versions of Firefox have built-in RSS readers. If you're using a browser that doesn't support RSS, there are a variety of RSS readers available on the web; some are free to download and others are available for purchase.

General information on RSS can be found on Wikipedia and practical information on Problogger

Some browsers (e.g. Firefox) support RSS subscriptions, but many find RSS Reader applications to be the best choice. Some of our favorites:
  • For Macs: LEAF (available on the Apple App Store) is a standalone app; FEEDLY (feedly.com) is browser-based for Safari, Firefox, and Chrome.
  • For Windows: FEEDREADER (feedreader.com) is standalone, or FEEDLY if you want a browser-based reader.
You can find many other choices online.
