RSS Feeds – What Are They And Why Should I Care?

Maverick here…in Miami…enjoying the time off and getting ready to visit sis in Washington tomorrow…

This post has been long overdue…

I am sure you have seen this interesting orange RSS FEED link on the top left of the blog…I know some of you are wondering…what the heck is this thing and why there…some of you possibly have clicked the link…and saw some interesting jibberish (something you did not understand).

The way I understand RSS Feeds…is a way to organize and compile all sites you are interested in reading (this blog, news, sports, hobbies, etc) and instead of having to visit them all the time to check for new content, you get notified when there is new content. Better use of your time…

Well, Maverick to the rescue again…no…not me…I am not the techie here…I just found a couple of good videos that explain the whole thing…you Tube to the rescue!

This video made plain sense…and hope it does to you also…and yes I did get Google Reader…and it is very simple…here is a video on how to use it…

Of course another way you can subscribe to a blog (like this one yes) is on the link that says something like subscribe for updates…maverick has made it Target Updates By Email. You are then notified by email when there is a new post (4-7 times a month or so with me). Either way is fine…the RSS Reader helps you organize more sites in one place so you don’t have to worry about missing an email.

Fun stuff eh…

Check Six,

The Maverick
