What is RSS?

What is RSS?
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. It is a quick and easy way to send you headlines and brief snippets of our premium content. Using a special program you can access this content, and content from hundreds of other sites, and be notified of new entries when we update the site. In short, RSS is bringing the Web to you.

What do I do?
It's easy to start using our RSS feeds. Follow these three steps:

  1. Download and install a feed reader for your computer.
  2. Go to any of our blog pages and right-click, or if you're a Mac user control-click, on the orange XML button ( XML ) on our pages. Select "copy shortcut" or "copy target address" or something similar.
  3. Launch the feed reader you downloaded and add the input the URL that you just copied into the program.
