How to use RSS Feeds

There are lots of blogs out there that are worth following, but how can you make sure that you are catching new blog entries when they are published? One easy way to do that is to subscribe to the RSS feed.

I was pretty intimidated by this technology at first, but now that I have a basic understanding, it really comes in handy. Here's how it works:

Take a look at the menu/address bar at the top of your browser. On the far right side of the address box (where the web address is typed) you'll see a little icon that looks like this:



If you are on a blog you like, you can click the orange icon and the blog will be saved as a bookmark. But here is the cool part- your bookmark will appear as a folder and all of the blog entries are filed as separate bookmarks within the blog folder. Then, each day you can click on the bookmark folder and see if there are any new bookmarks available. When there are, they'll be listed as a bookmark in the folder, and your bookmark will lead you directly to that new blog post.

Try it, you'll see what I mean:

1) Go to the top of this blog and click the orange icon
2) Create the folder name ("TAE's Awesome Blog" is a good one)
3) Choose where you want the folder to live
4) Hit "Add" (or "Subscribe" depending on your browser.)

That's it! Then go to where you saved the folder in your Bookmarks and you'll see all of the blog entries I have written in the past two weeks. Now you can be sure to never miss a blog entry!
