Syndication


This shit is whacked!

Okay, grab a coffee, have a pee, do what you need to do; this is going to take a bit of explaining...

You'll notice over to the right a title bar marked "XML/RSS Feed". If you click on the "Syndicate this site" link, you'll get a snippet of HTML gobbledygook. I'll get to that in a second...

What you need to do first is download an RSS reader -- here's a list. You then use the software (and the link to the HTML gobbledygook) to subscribe to my website. That way you'll be automatically notified every time I upload a new entry!

It gets better; your RSS reader should come pre-installed with subscriptions for sites like, oh I dunno... BBC News! So now, instead of poring over a whack of headlines (and ads), you now have the option of clicking directly into the story you want to read.

The great thing about my iBlog software is that I can easily switch between Blog and RSS modes, giving my web browser new functionality that it didn't have on its own. And if you ask me, I think that's pretty damn cool!
