How RSS Feeds Work

Using RSS feeds
If you want to stay in touch with my blog, you can subscribe to an RSS feed. You’ll need a news reader, such as Bloglines or FeedZilla, a piece of software that checks for blog updates automatically and lets you know when new articles have been added. Once you’ve chosen your news reader, just click on the orange RSS button to subscribe to the feed. You can do this by either dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the URL into a new feed in your news reader.
