The Benefit of RSS

I have to be honest. I am sometimes, a lazy person. I hate doing duplicated jobs or doing things the hard way. Heck, I think everyone doesn't like it either. So, normally what we all do is, we find ways to automate as many things as possible to leverage our limited time that we have in a day. In today's world, we are constantly expose to changes. Whether we like it or not, we have to adapt to certain type of changes in our life.

After I learned about RSS for nearly a week now, I've been using it ever since. I have save a lot of my time just looking on my 'feed reader' or My Yahoo to see if my favourite blog is being updated, or not. I don't really read the news as I think reading the newspaper is more fun during my weekends.

I am an e-mail addict. Whenever I am online, it is compulsory for me to check my e-mail accounts. I have several e-mail accounts, each has its different type of use. When you have e-mail accounts, you normally subscribe to various newsletter. I subscribe to dozens of them. Most of the time, I just skim the headlines and see which one catches my interest then would I read its content. There are blogs who you can subscribe to receive their updates. After knowing this RSS, I have cancelled the e-mail subscription and subscribe to RSS/XML subscription. It is so much easier.

That's the two most biggest benefits that I've experienced so far after a week of using RSS features. I haven't write about how to subscribe yet, but I'm sure going to write 'How To Subscribe To My Blog using RSS subscription' in my next post. I'll put on some pictures for a more comprehensive information. Till next time..
