What is an "RSS Feed"?
Do you read blogs regularly? Have you heard of the term 'RSS Feed'? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, it is a way of letting you know that new posts have been added. You will know when a site has RSS when you can see this orange icon (picture shown above) at the top of your web browser or if the website you are looking at says it has RSS Feed.
If you click on the orange icon, it will show the feeds for the site. Click on 'Subscribe to this feed' at the top of the page, and you can now view all posts through your 'Favourites Center' in your browser, without having to visit the website. Any time a new post is added, it will automatically update to your feed.
Want to be notified anytime I make a change to my blog? Just click on the orange icon in your web browser.
