What Is RSS?
I've been seeing orange RSS or
XML buttons more and more, not knowing what they were. And when I found out? Wow!
It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite band's tour updates etc.
Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.
No more bookmarks for me!
"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to Exploring Romania
without having to check the site every week to see "what's new."
Whenever I put up a new page or update an old one, I release it through RSS. And…
I also make special posts from time to time. It's kind of a small blog about Romania.
There are so many wonderful things I want to share with you.And unfortunately I can do it only once at a time.
Now I can share them through RSS without you having to spend hours on the site.
Yes, RSS is amazing. Well… I've became addicted to it. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. If you get tired of me <SOB>, you just have to delete the feed. It's awesome!
And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favorite interests and news in the world.
How do you get started? Easy (now that I know, that is! ha! ha!).
Download free RSS Reader first (skip to bottom if you do not want to download software). This is special software that reads the "RSS feeds" from the largest news organizations right down to little old me…
Windows -- RssReader
Mac -- NetNewsWire
Once you're set up, here's all you have to do…
Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on any orange RSS button on a site, blog or news source that interests you. Start by right-clicking on the orange button below. Then…
Select Copy Shortcut ("Copy Link to Clipboard" for Mac), and paste that URL into your RSS Reader.
And that's it! You're subscribed.
Right-click and get started.
