Ever wondered what all the hoopla of RSS feeds is about? Author Tech has some great tips.
He’s posted several videos to walk folks through the process of getting started. Here’s the first one–if you want more info, click the link above.
You’ll notice I have an RSS link at the bottom of my sidebar. I will (reluctantly, I might add) start using an RSS feed myself when we get back from vacation and I have time to set it up. Author Tech’s reasoning makes a lot of sense, but I’ll miss seeing the *pretty* on so many of the blogs!

I’ve been using RSS in Safari (on my mac) and find I often end up linking to the original page anyway, especially if I want to comment on something (like here!). The most important thing for me, though, is RSS helps me save time. I tend to try to track too many things so it helps me scan quickly. As a result, if a site doesn’t have an RSS, I usually forget to check in. Gotta flow with the times, I guess.
