Why RSS? Reason is really simple, because it saves time!
How much time is wasted everyday going to blogs and realise that they ARE NOT updated, how about knowing about their updates even before you type in their url? THAT is the magic of RSS!
There are a lot of RSS readers around that allow you to see in your bookmark bar if the website/blog updated itself. forexample, if you bookmark my RSS feed everytime i update my blog, there will be a (1) beside it to indicate the number of updates I made.
Of course, I do understand that some browsers have yet to support RSS (for i do not know what reason), so here comes the reader, which could really make your lives easier. All you have to do is to bookmark my site in the reader (along with other blogs,) and you are able to view all our updates all via 1 URL. Talk about efficiency!
Okok, personally, I am using google reader, though still in beta. There are a lot of readers around and I recommend those that i prefer on my sidebar. For google reader, you need not register if you have a gmail/google account.
You can add directly if you know the URL of the blog which uses blogger, livejournal, myspace etc etc.
If not, you do a quick search for the url, for example, this time round I chose to find subscribe to tomorrow.sg bulletin... so i searched tomorrow.sg...
and in the end, after you bookmarked the sites you want...
and you can read the entries like how you read EMAIL!
isnt that great...
ok, so my subscription is at the side bar, feel free to try any of the readers, they are all good and well-used by the netizens around the world.
