Most blogs are published both on web sites and as feeds. To put it simply, the feed means that you don’t have to visit the site to read its content. You can subscribe to updates and have them delivered to you.
How Do I Start?
The fastest way to start is with online news aggregators. They’re really easy and you reach them from any computer. Check out:
- Bloglines – Just create an account and start subscribing to feeds. Another option is to use news aggregators that you download and install in your computer.
- NewsGator – This tool runs in Microsoft Outlook. Make sure that your aggregator reads both RSS- and Atom-feeds or many blogs will be out of your reach.
