Using an RSS Feed to Save Time

Written by 
RSS feed symbol RSS feed symbol

Who has time to visit dozens of websites every day to check on the latest articles that interest you? Fortunately, with RSS, you don’t have to. RSS stands for Really Simply Syndication. By signing up to receive the RSS feed from a website, when new content from that website is produced, it will be delivered directly to you.

There are two main ways to read RSS feeds. The first way is via email. Some sites allow you sign up have notifications of new content sent to your email inbox. Just provide your email address, and the site will take care of the rest. This is the best option for those who only want to receive a couple feeds.

The second way is using a feed reader. Feed readers (sometimes called a feed aggregator) collect all of your feeds and present the information to you in a newspaper-like format. Feed readers let you organize your feeds by subjects, search by keywords, star items for reference, or clip articles for storage. Feed readers are the best solution for those managing multiple feeds, someone doing research or producing a blog, or just information junkies.

Feed readers can be plugins to web mail like Gmail or Yahoo, or web browers like Firefox and Internet Explorer. There are also free stand-alone feed readers such as FeedDemon. CNET has an article on how to choose the best feed reader for you.

See what our students have to say

My first experience with the Kepler Certificate Program has been an amazing journey. After many years of reading and trying to understand how astrology works, I decided I needed help pulling all the pieces together.

Since I work and have a family, the Kepler online learning program has been a wonderful way for me to reach out to the Universe and understand just a little more about who I am and where I want to go. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and accessible.

The online learning environment is a great tool with video, audio, webinars, resource links, pdf documents, etc. Kepler also includes their own text and work book and a great selection of an easy to understand astrology books. With the ability to review any area I may find challenging, my learning is exciting and adapted to my needs.

I am enthusiastic and looking forward to continuing my astrological search with Kepler.

Thanks again, Linda Schingen (W101)

Kepler is an ISAR Affiliated School
