RSS for bloggers: Yes, it can be understood

Feedster has an outstanding online tutorial for new bloggers. It explains RSS in terms that are clear and has outstanding images giving bloggers what they need to know. Feedburner also has a quick overview of RSS.

And if that wets your appetite . . . more.

Also, after reading the Feedster tutorial, you'll be in a position to make an informed critique this article on RSS and blogging. Oh, you want to talk to others about doing neat, kewl stuff with your RSS? Then try this.

Now that your confidence is up, you'll be able to see more clearly when people talk about RSS: What are they missing; are they hyping something; or is what they're saying really not matching what you know to be true?

For example, take a look at this blog.

Then you can play with aggregators. Findory personalizes your searches.

But you want to know more about search engines, blogs, and RSS? No worries -- at your fingertips, and toes.

Let me guess. You want to know how your blog might actually fit into something that's "real life" as in, "Show me how blogging can really make a difference." That's a good point, as blogging supports project management.Ref

If you're thinking you might want to read something a little more technical try these XML primer.

Oh, but you want something that compares what you're familiar with on web pages with that which is in the blogs or used for syndication? Alas, you might find this a helpful comparison between HTML and XML.

Ah, but you say you want to know specifications. Fair enough. try this on for size.

Oh, you mean you want something that actually shows how the companies like IBM are making things that support XML? Ah, that's fair.

Oh, wait...you're looking for something that shows you how XML-related products are actually developed? That's no problem from these Wizards.

You've seen alot of discussion about RSS and XML. Now you're in a position to evaluate the feedback from the people who actually work with XML. Have they missed the point?

Think of blogs as something that you can create. And think of RSS as something you can choose from.

Blogging. It's not just about you. It is you. Your choices. Whatever you want to focus on.

Yes, its does make sense.

Feel free to post your questions if this information does not provide enough information to make those "what is RSS all about"-kinds of clouds disappear.

RSS. And XML. They are tools to help you bridge you from where you are ... to where you want to go.

You decide. It's your choice.
