Inundated with blogs you’d like to follow but don’t have the time to visit them all? Most blogs and news sites – including TLA’s – offer Really Simple Syndication (RSS) to help you out. RSS simplifies the information from your favorite sites and delivers all of it to one location.
To get started, all you need is a feed reader. When a blog or news site you subscribe to adds a new post, it’ll automatically be sent to your reader. No more guess work. No more visiting dozens of blogs to see if they’ve been updated recently.
One of the most popular feed readers is Feedly, which can be installed as an app for iOS and Android, and can also be used on the web. Registration is simple, free, and easy-to-use. Looking for other options? Lifehacker has a great post comparing different feed readers.
Each reader has its own different set-up instructions, but generally all you need is a link to each site’s RSS feed that you want to follow. The subscription link for TLA’s RSS feed can be found at the bottom of every page: http://www.tla-online.org/feed/
