If you aren’t familiar with RSS (Really Simple Syndication) then you’re missing out on a quick and convenient way of getting the latest updates from your favorite sites without needing to visit them.
All you need is an RSS reader and there are plenty of them around the Web. Google Reader is my favorite.
The Firefox browser also has an RSS reader built right into the Bookmark functionality, so checking your subscribed feeds is just as easy as navigating to your bookmarks/favorites.
And since Firefox’s bookmark feature is so darn flexible, you can organize the feeds anyway you wish with ease.
How to Subscribe to My Blog Feed With Firefox
If you’re using Firefox (and you should be!) simply click this link.
A screen will open asking you which RSS reader you’d like to use to subscribe to this blog. Click “View Feed XML” and it will prompt you to add this blog’s feed to your FireFox Bookmarks.
Wasn’t that super easy? Sort of makes bookmarking a site seem so old fashion doesn’t it?
Now anytime you want to view my new content for this blog, just navigate to your Bookmarks and you can quickly view the titles of my recent posts.
RSS is great because if you subscribe to many sites, you can quickly browse the titles to see if the author has posted something that interests you.
If not, you can try back later when more updates have been made. No need to take up your precious time visiting numerous sites, just let RSS do the work for ya!
Don’t Use Firefox?
Haven’t fallen in love with Firefox yet? No problem. There are still several different ways to subscribe and view RSS feeds. When you click my RSS feed button or link you can see the different readers you can use.
Use whatever reader works best for you. Just make sure you use something. RSS has revolutionized the way we browse the net and especially read blogs.
It’s a quick and easy way to get the content you want and skip the content you don’t want.
