What is RSS 

RSS is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites and blogs. It saves you time and helps you to get the information you want quickly after it was published.

RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” and many people describe it as a “news feed” that you subscribe to help you keep up with your favorite blogs. The term “subscription” is very helpful, because it describes exactly what you are doing.

What does subscribing mean?

It’s like subscribing to a magazine that is delivered to you periodically but instead of it coming in your physical mail box each month when the magazine is published it is delivered to your “RSS Reader” every time your favorite web-log updates.

In order to subscribe to an RSS tracked site like Women at Crossroads the first thing to do is to get an RSS reader.  If you’re getting into reading several blogs and want to expedite the process it is imperative that you sign yourself up with an RSS Feed Reader.

How do I get an RSS Feed Reader?

A good place to start is to check out a couple of free and easy web based feed readers like Google Reader or Bloglines. Click on the embeded links that I have provided and get started. Either one will do if you’re a novice but personally, I use Google’s Reader.

Try it, you’ll like it!

Both of these feed readers work a little like email. As you subscribe to feeds you’ll see that unread entries from the sites you’ve signed up for will be marked as bold. As you click on them you’ll see the latest update provided and can read through it right there in the feed reader if you desire to. 

If you want to utilize another option you are also given the choice to click through to our actual site to read through the post and I would encourage you to do that if that is what is more to your liking.

Just do it!

The best way to learn how to use either Google Reader or Bloglines is to simply subscribe to some feeds and give it a go. Try it, I’m sure you’ll like it and you will be able to keep track of all that is happening on https://womenatcrossroads.wordpress.com/ more efficiently.

    Hi, I am a bit older student at Liberty Seminary. Looking for women like yourself doing a paper on Roles of women in the church. I also saw you have a facebook so do I, but I put myself in time out because of my homework is a bit much right now. Funny, I sent out a simple questionare to women, on women questions, about 200 only about 5 answered. How in the world do we set a fire to the women today. virginia
