Great RSS Reader. What is RSS you say?


As I mentioned before, I am new to this blog thing as well as RSS. I am sure that I am not the only person out there that is just catching on to all of this. Unbeknownst to me, even being a very tech-savvy, somewhat 'connected' person, this technology and culture has been around for a while and growing at an exponential rate.

Through this blog, I will attempt to provide information and links to the stuff that is helping me sort it all out, while providing content that I find interesting and thought provoking.

Here is a bit of an article on RSS; someone else has done a much better job of explaining it than I have:
RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

Read the rest of this article here. Then read what follows...

Now that you are well versed in RSS, you will want a way to gather these feeds. Firefox has great functionality for this or pick up this aggregator -- RssReader. I installed it yesterday and it works wonderfully.

By the way, if you haven't tried Firefox, you should. It makes browsing the net fun again.

Hi there blog owner! I am searching blogs to find information and sources to help with my website:http://www.horse-lover-gift-ideas-central.com/horse_figurine.html My site is fairly new about 8 months old and have a google pr of 3 and get about 50 people a day to visit. My site has equipment horse online riding and is all affiliate merchandise.
This is a new frontier for my wife and I and don't have very much experience but a friend suggested searching blogs to get ideas about how people sale and also what kind of information they offer their customers and clients. We are begining to make some good money selling equipment horse online riding related articles but I also want to offer my customers some quality information to go along with good deals. If you make it to my site and can offer some constructive critisizm I will take it into consideration or if you have some ideas it will be greatly appreciated. Remember we are on a budget and we do all the work ourselves.

Best Regards,
