The answer is something called “Really Simple Syndication” (“RRS” for short). How simple is it? When I find a blog I like, I “subscribe” to it. From that point on, any time there is a new post in that blog, the post appears as simply another e-mail message. The act of checking my e-mail also checks every one of those blogs for new posts.
How do I get started?
You will need an “RSS reader.” The one I use is called intraVnews. It is free for personal use, charities, and non-profit organizations. You can download it from here.
The system requirements are:
- Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1. (Click the link to download it)
- Operating Systems: Microsoft© Windows© 98 SE or higher.
- Microsoft© Outlook© versions: 2002/XP (10.0), 2003 (11.0).
