As part of my ongoing effort to increase my brand presence online, I have now added an RSS subscription button to my blog, featured in the column to the left of this post, up at the top, there...

Maybe eventually I'll actually be able to get back to doing some writing!

Now, in case some of you don't know what an RSS feed is, I've taken the liberty of coughing up the following information, from the Source of All Knowledge (Other Than WTL), Wikipedia:


(Really Simple Syndication) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed," "web feed," or "channel," contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.

RSS content can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader" or an "aggregator". The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.
