Explaining RSS in Plain English

RSSIt used to be that there were only a few blogs of interest to any one person, so it was easy to go and check those blogs once in a while to see if there was anything new to read. These days, however, there are so many blogs — and many of them very good — that it is almost impossible to keep up with all of them without some kind of assistance.

Most (all?) blogs offer a “feed” which will let you read a barebones version of the blog in a feed reader. Feed readers are extremely helpful because they bring all your blogs together in one place so (1) you don’t have to remember all of the addresses and (2) you don’t have to go and check all the time to see if anything new has been published.

If this sounds like something that might interest you, please have a look at the following video of The Common Craft Show for an explanation of RSS in plain English.

And now that you know all about RSS, maybe you will want to subscribe to TsukuBlog so you can be notified whenever we publish new content to the site.
