Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a way of alerting your readers that new content has arrived.
Check out Google News. That page is one big RSS feed, prettily formatted but nevertheless a mass of alerts. As is, I believe, the topics page here at Wizzley.
Wherever the logo is found, then it can be clicked for the RSS feed URL. This is a great way of knowing when your favorite authors have added another article; or merely being able to glance through headlines.
Typically, people will use an RSS feed reader of some description. This can be a bespoke program, like Feedreader, or they can be channeled into your e-mail account.
The first time that you click on a RSS feed logo, you will be asked where you wish to direct your feed. Thereafter, your computer's software will remember and add all future streams there.
Another popular, and more common, way to display RSS is to embed them into a webpage. This happens a lot at Wizzley, as I will demonstrate right here.
