If you are new to Blogging or have been out of the loop for a while in regards to new web technology, then you probably aren’t familiar with RSS. You probably have seen RSS logos on different various blogs but might not be familiar with them. I also contest that you may have clicked on an RSS link and viewed news stories listed in XML format. If you knew what you were looking at, you probably didn’t know what you had stumbled upon. You stumbled upon the Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed. RSS is a way of publishing data, in the XML standard, to interested parties without having those parties jump through hoops to retrieve the data.
