If you’re like most people, you stumble across a lot of web sites or blogs that interest you. You may be able to keep up with a certain site for a while, but eventually you forget about it, or misplace the link you need, or your computer deletes its cookies and you can’t find it anymore.
Ah, the perils of modern life.
Lucky for you (and everyone else), some enterprising Web designers had the same problem, and they came up with RSS to fix it. RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication,” and it’s essentially just a really easy way to subscribe to web sites you like.
To use RSS, you need a place for all that content to go. You need a reader, or “news aggregator,” which is simply a single, personalized site that keeps up with all the other sites you want to follow. Instead of visiting 10, 100 or 1000 different sites, you go to one site to access all the new information each has to offer.
Here are some additional links to other resources for RSS and news readers:
