Most people think that RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." RSS feeds are just a special kind of web page designed to be read by computers rather than people.
RSS allows you to see when sites from all over the Internet have added new content. You can get the latest headlines and articles in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to remember to visit each site every day. It takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date by showing you the very latest information that you are interested in.
You can get everything on cityofsandimas.com by visiting our website, but we also provide feeds for people who prefer reading the site in an RSS news reader.
In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader or news aggregator. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added to them. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want to receive in your news reader, by finding and subscribing to the relevant RSS feeds.
