Are You Using an RSS Feed Reader?

Since you are here you obviously read at least one blog. If you read more than one or two you might consider checking out a RSS feed reader, like Google Reader or Bloglines. RSS stands for “really simple syndication” and it means just that. When you find a blog you like you can subscribe to it with your feed reader, and then, rather than you going out to check all your blogs every day, blog updates are sent to you. You can also organize your blogs by type, save your favorite entries, and tag things that are of interest to you.

Feed readers are for more than just blogs, too. They work for almost anything that is regularly updated, so you can get sections of newspapers, or even the Amazon.com deals of the day.

For a really nice, basic (and entertaining) explanation of RSS, check out this little video.
