What is RSS?

RSS is simply a way for you to subscribe to a website or blog’s content with the simple click of a button. (as you can see on my top-right Orange Button)

First step is click the feed button and choose the feed reader that you are preferred, A variety of RSS Readers are available for different platforms. Some popular feed readers include Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac), FeedReader (Windows), and NewsGator (Windows - integrates with Outlook). There are also a number of web-based feed readers available. My Yahoo, Bloglines, and Google Reader are popular web-based feed readers.

The last step is - enjoy reading the article from the site / blog you've subscribed via your feed reader, you can view it by simply checking your RSS reader.
