If you are newer to blogging... I just want to point you to my Blogging: How To.
RSS feeds are changing the way some, including myself, are surfing the web. Many sites, including blogs, are offering regularly updated material or current news through "feeds" that can be gathered and looked at in one place. This is already discussed in the Blogging: How To article.
It's useful to note, however, that one can now gather information from many different sources depending on your interests. RSS feeds can bring you updates, not only on news and blogs, but also your hobbies, areas of interest, or just things you are currently studying or interested in. You can stay current or informed in many different areas easily. One directory for this is CompleteRss. You choose the feeds you want, or delete them if you no longer read them. This allows you to fully customize the information that comes at you. You are in control and the info you want is easily accesssible! Happy blogging!
