It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get news feeds 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 to keep on top of.
"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to Essential Oil Recipes 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.
I also include my favorites and make other special posts from time to time. It's kind of a small blog about Essential Oil Recipes.
RSS is amazing. If you can't tell, I'm completely addicted to it. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. If you get tired of me, 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 around the world.
You'll need an RSS Reader and two I can recommend which are both free, are Google Reader and Bloglines (I use Google Reader). There are many other readers but these two are great if you're just starting out. They are both web based and both very easy to set up and use.
Once you're set up, here's all you have to do...
Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on any RSS subscribe button or text 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 Location" for Mac), and paste that URL into your RSS Reader.
And that's it! You're subscribed.
Right-click and get started.
