How Do I Subscribe?

If you've never subscribed to a website's RSS or Atom feed before, it can be a technical hurdle to begin, but it is worth the effort. Rather than constantly visiting websites to determine whether there's new content, you can have a Feed Aggregator automatically gather new posts from websites you want to follow. Using a Feed Aggregator to subscribe to websites can improve your web viewing efficiency and help organize the sites you're interested in.

If you're interested in learning how to subscribe via RSS, you should start by selecting a Feed Aggregator (They're also known as Feed Readers). Web based Feed Aggregators like Bloglines are very popular. It's a free service and you can access your collection of feeds from any computer. If you'd prefer a better GUI (graphic user interface), a desktop application may be a better choice. Ranchero Software makes a great reader for Mac called NetNewsWire. They offer a free lite version and a fully featured copy for $40. Personally, I use NetNewsWire, which has the added capability of sincing with bloglines. If you are on a PC, I'm not sure what the best solution is, but I'm sure google can find something.

Once you've become familiar with the Feed Aggregator you want to use, try subscribing to one of our feeds.
