What Is RSS?

Use the orange RSS buttons (they're everywhere these days!) to get the latest web pages from Photography Art Cafe... Or perhaps BBC / CNN news updates, movie release dates, blog posts, etc.

There's no need to constantly go out and check for updates. RSS is like the ultimate paper-boy - it simply lets you know whenever new information appears on the websites you like!

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that's just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the additions to Photography Art Cafe without having to check the site every week to see "what's new." New pages and updates to old ones are released through RSS.

I release all new pages through RSS, and also make some special posts that won't be found in the main body of the website

 

OK - How To Get Started...?

First, download a free RSS Reader

(alternatively - skip to the bottom of this page to learn about Web-based readers which you may already have instant access to if you have a Google or Yahoo! account).

An RSS Reader is special software that reads the RSS feeds...

Mac -- NetNewsWire

Once you're set up, here's all you have to do...

Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on the orange RSS button on any page of this site, or any blog or news source that interests you. copy shortcutSelect Copy Shortcut ("Copy Link to Clipboard" on a Mac), and paste that URL into your RSS Reader.

That's it! You'll be subscribed.
