Not everybody is savy about RSS feeds so I thought I would post a small note about how to use them. An RSS Reader constantly checks your favorite news sites and blogs for new content. Whether a site updates daily or monthly, you can be sure that you won’t miss a thing. Some internet browsers such as Mozilla Fire fox automatically add RSS feeds to your menu bar at the top of your browser page as soon as you add it to your list. All you need to do is click on the RSS icon (the one displayed below) and add the site to your list.
To add any RSS feed to your list or to an RSS feeder list just click on the RSS feed symbol on the site. It usually looks like this: The easiest reader to use is Google Reader. If you already have a Google account, just sign in and browse for Google Reader. Click on the Subscription button and add the RSS feed address. Now you can just check in to the reader at any time to see if there are any new postings. It is an easy way to have all your favorite sites and blogs at your fingertips.
If you are receiving this message, you are already on my subscription list and don’t really need to do this for my site. You will be notified each time there is a new posting. But if you do get the RSS thing figured out, it makes it a lot easier to keep track of your favorite sites and blogs, including this one.
I am still working out the automatic notification software on my own blog site so this is also a test to see if everybody gets notified about this latest posting. I have added a few new postings since my last notification email.
I am also now a member of China Blog Network. If you click on the banner at the bottom of my home page, you will be able to check out a bunch of other cool blogs about China. And please check out gringosabroad.com where I just published a ahort article about our life in China.
