What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format designed
for web content distribution like news headlines, entire articles, or channel specific information. An RSS feed (also known as an
RSS channel) consists of a list of items, each of which contains a headline,
description, and a link to a web page where the content also resides. Some items will also include other types of information specific to the individual item, like a category or author's name for example.
How do I use RSS?
To use RSS, you will need an RSS news reader
or aggregator that will allow you to collect and display the RSS feed. RSS news
readers allow you to view the channels you select all together in the same place
and, by automatically retrieving updates, stay current with new content soon
after it is published.
There are many different news readers available,
many for free. Most news readers are applications that you download and install.
Some others are web-based that work inside your browser. Web-based news readers allow you to access your entire collection of RSS feeds from any computer.
Listed below are some popular news reader options:Bloglines

After selecting a news reader,
just right-click on the orange XML icon and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Location" to copy the feed's URL to the clipboard. Then follow the instructions for
your chosen news reader to paste the URL as the location of the feed you would like to subscribe to.
