How To Never Miss A Story On - And You Don't Even Have To Visit The WebSite!

In a perfect world every bride would add to her favourites and religiously check the site each and every morning! Only kidding, but it is very true to say that people only return to sites that they really value. In fact I can hardly wait until Windows Vista, the new Microsoft Platform goes mainstream. Why may you ask - how will this help

Quite simply Windows Vista will incorporate a technology call RSS (Really Simple Syndication) - which as dull as it might sound is quite exciting! Currently I use a service call that uses RSS to tell me whenever one of my favourite sites has new content, this way I can keep up to date with all the global wedding news on a daily basis. Anyone can subscribe to it and take advantage of this easy way to track any website they like, though in practice the majority of people don't know about it.

To directly quote from Microsoft :

"After finding interesting information, users are using RSS technologies to "subscribe" to the content, ensuring that the latest changes or updates to the content are delivered to them, instead of having to return to the site to check it again."

Take a look at the bubble in the image of my desktop to the left, this is telling me that there are 595 new stories for me to read. I don't have to visit each website, I simply click on the Bloglines icon to read the latest news. It's brilliant and saves me so much time.

If you never want to miss an article, blog, video, document, photo or news story from your favourite site I highly recommend you sign up to - it's free and takes seconds to install.

Once signed up you can subscribe to using this feed and never miss a blog again!

If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them.

Thank you for reading.
