First, what is RSS? It’s Really Simple Syndication and it allows you to receive the articles I write to the site without actually having to come here. You can read a lot of sites very quickly, without having to wait for them to load. Watch this video for a quick explanation:
On this site, the feed contains full articles, not summaries, so you get the whole thing as if you were actually at the site. Sometimes the images I put into the post that don’t appear entirely correctly and you will still have to visit to leave your comments (I hope you do), but RSS makes reading much quicker and easier. You can use your favorite RSS news aggregator (My favorite is Bloglines) or just have them piped into an email address.
To subscribe to the RSS feed, click on the HUGE orange icon below and Feedburner will walk you through the process:
Twitter is a microblogging tool that lets you connect with people on a 140 character by 140 character basis. It’s a lot of fun and you should give it a try! I tend to post quick little 140 character ideas and posts to it from something crazy I saw walking around to giveaways and freebies to what I’m eating (ok, just kidding, I don’t twitter what I eat). It’s free, it’s fun, and everyone’s doing it. Please sign up and follow me @storyboardlife.
