- RSS feeds are pure content – no site around them, no graphics, no sidebars, nothing;
- RSS feed format was developed for delivering updates – saving time and improving productivity;
- you don’t read them like web sites – you need special program or online reader.
How do you start?
Easy, you click links and icons .
- If you have proper browser like Opera or Firefox – they have all you need built-in.
- If not – you’ll get web page with feed preview and nice choice of online readers.
- Also check my post on excellent NewsGator family of RSS readers.
- If still not – just google feed reader .

I had asked my readers why they subscribe to my feed and here are the answers I got.
I just love the blog. I mean, I don’t always find useful every application you review, but I still read the blog everyday just in case you review a software that could make my life so much easier! You know you already made my life easier with some of your reviews.

Yes, I drop in here 3 times almost every day, but if you write something and post it between those times or after my last time, then I won’t be the first or second to comment on it. :)

This is the first comment I’ve made but i’ve been subscribed for three or four months and love your site. Just setting my own website up at the moment so I’m keenly following yours.

Haha, well done Rarst! I am a regular reader for a couple of weeks, and I really like your blog. This kind of posts will make me come back, that is for sure!
You combine the polar traits of decisiveness (opinionated) with open-mindedness. It’s a combination what is normatively oppositional which makes your commentary winsome.
Great blog btw. I get you on a feed and read with enthusiam. Anything I’ve tried that you recommend has worked exactly as you said.
