What Is An RSS Blog Feed? How Do I Get Instant PBR Updates?
- EMAIL DELIVERY: Visit http://blogtrottr.com, type in the address of the feed (www.pediatricsboardreview.com), type in your email address and then check your inbox to confirm you really want the feed. Once you confirm, you'll be shown two feeds that you can subscribe to. Choose “www.pediatricsboardreview.com/feed“. That's it! Blog Trottr is great because it's simple, automated, and lets you subscribe for free. If there's a new post, you'll get it! Love it!
- GOOGLE READER: This is more complicated and requires you to go and check your feeds when you're bored. It's kind of like having access to an endless message board. You have to create a Google account to use this service. Login to your Google account and then visit http://www.google.com/reader. Then click on SUBSCRIBE and type in the name of the website you are interested in adding to your Google Feed Reader. Or, if you have the RSS feed address (e.g., https://www.pediatricsboardreview.com/feed or http://feeds.feedburner.com/pediatricsboardreview), just type it in and hit SUBSCRIBE. That's it! You can then come back to your Google Reader account as often as you want to see what's new. I think this is great if you are going to be good about coming back to see what's new. For me, it kind of feels like I've created a stack of magazines and journal articles that “I'll get to eventually,” so it's not my preferred option.
