What Is RSS?



 

Use the orange RSS/XML buttons (they're everywhere nowadays) to get the latest Web pages from my-london-breaks, as well as the latest news from BBC, the latest movies, blog posts, etc.

It's like having your favourite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time. No need for bookmarks!

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to my-london-breaks without having to check the site every week to see "what's new." Whenever I put up a new page or update an old one, I release it through RSS. And...

I also include the latest news on theatres and concerts and bring to your attention special offers in the high streets from time to time. It's kind of a small blog about London.

I can share interesting pictures with you through RSS. This gives you the latest tourist news about London without you having to spend hours on the site.

Yes, RSS is amazing and I'm completely hooked on it. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. It's awesome!

And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favourite interests and news from around the world.

How do you get started? Easy!

Download free RSS Reader first (skip to bottom if you do not want to download software). This is special software that reads the "RSS feeds" from the largest news organizations right down to my humble website.
