The Lord be with you
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. If you subscribe to a blog’s RSS feed you receive the text of any new posts within minutes of it being posted. You can also subscribe to receive comments that are posted by readers of the blog. To receive this feed you will also need a “Browser newsreader.” Many of these are free. If you already have a Google account (gmail, google, hotmail) then go to www.google.com/reader and use the program for free. Other readers you may want to check-out that are free might include www.bloglines.com and www.newsgator.com.
If you follow more than one blog, this is an easy way to keep up with all of them without having to check each one to see if they have any new posts.
Rev. Rickert – A Lutheran in SC now has this capability. (I didn’t know how to do it before today.) To subscribe go to the bottom of this page. The area is titled “Subscribe To”. Then click on “Posts.” Depending on your Reader, you might just be able to click on “Subscribe” and you are done. If that isn’t the case for you then copy the URL address, in my case hhtp://www.Lutheran-in-SC.blogspot.com, and paste it in the space provided. Click “Add.” You are done.
Now, if this doesn’t work, let me know by posting a comment on this post. Like I said, I just learned how to do this, and I may not have understood the directions correctly.
Blessings in Christ
Pastor John Rickert
P.S. RSS feeds are also known by other names on other blogs like “web feed,” and “news feed.”
