By subscribing to the content in a blog (called a feed), you are notified of new information when it’s posted. This means that content is delivered to you as it becomes available. It’s supposed to be simple: RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary.
After you’ve decided you want to subscribe, it’s a bit confusing since there are so many ways to get the information delivered to you. Here, I’ve tried to simplify it for you.
The simplest may be to enter your email address and have a summary delivered to your inbox. Click the link below to do this.
