Using RSS Feeds

February 7, 2007

It is unfortunate how many people still do not use RSS feeds, as they are a great way to keep up on blog content that may not be updated regularly. With RSS all you have to do is subscribe to the feed and then check you subsciptions to see what sites have new content. In fact usually that new content is already displayed for you. This saves the effort and wasted time of checking sites regularly and waiting for them to load only to discover that there is nothing new.

With Internet Explorer 7 now having a built-in RSS reader, there is no good reason for anyone not to be using this great technology. Here are some links that explain just how easy this is to use in IE7:

In the upper right hand portion of this blog there is now a Subscribe to RSS feed button that allows you to subscribe to this blog just by clicking on it.
