It's RSS Awareness Day: Get the 411 on RSS Feeds Here

In honor of RSS Awareness Day (May 1), here's a quick and easy guide to getting the most out of your Pongo (and other) blog subscriptions.

Here at The Pongo Blog, we offer two ways to subscribe: by email or RSS feed.

If you haven't the faintest idea what RSS is, why it's important, or why you would ever want or need to use it, this brief video should answer all your questions.

As the video explains, you'll need a "reader" – a web-based application that collects and displays RSS feeds – to use the RSS feature. Here are a couple of readers you could try, along with instructions on how to set them up and subscribe to your favorite blogs.

Any time a blog is updated with a new post, your reader will grab it and store it for you to view any time you want. Some blogs will provide the reader with the full post while others, like Pongo, provide a summary. Just click on the headline to read the full post.

Remember, RSS feeds can free up your email inbox and organize all your blog subscriptions in one easy-to-view page, accessible from any computer, anywhere! Good luck and have fun!
