As more and more people start owning a blog now, it’s getting hard to keep viewing everyone’s blog everyday to see either they have updated their blog or not. And so, here comes the FEEDS Function.
This Post is a guide to help you keep up with your friends’ blogs. As there are many ways to receive Feeds, here I’m using Firefox’s plugin as an example.
Step 1: You need Firefox. If you already have it on your computer, skip to step 3.
Step 2: Install it if you didn’t have it on your computer. Just download it from the Official site and following simple step to install it.
Download it and install it.
Step 3: Launch Firefox from your computer. From firefox, open this page :
Step 4: Click on the “Add to Firefox” Button. A new windows will be launch and asking for your permission to install it. Click on “install” button.
Click on the button.
Step 5: After that Restart your firefox.
Now that you already have the Feed Sidebar’s add-ons on your firefox, it’s time to start using it.
Step 1: Open some blogs (WordPress, Blogspots, ETC…). I’m using my own blog as example here.
Step 2: Search for the RSS Feed button, or Entries RSS. Then click on it.
Click on the word “RSS”.
Or just click on the RSS Button located behind the site’s URL.
Step 3: It will lead you to another page and show you the “word only” version of the website. In there, you will see a button called “subscribe now”. Click on it.
Just click on it.
step 4: Then a window will pop-up and asked where to subscribe it on your bookmarks. Just click “add” if you don’t care much about it.
Done! You can just close the page. And when the site have some new entries, you will be noticed by firefox at the bottom like this:
Like this, or…
You will see a STAR at the feeds button located in front of your URL Bar.
Click on it to view what new feeds available to read.
You will see somethings like this. All of these entries are new and you can double click on it to open it up on your firefox to view.
Through using feeds reader, you safe up time to open up every blog which you are interested in, just to check out either they had post up a new entry or not. You just need to open your firefox browser and then let it inform you about new entries.
