Don’t panic because this posting is not about tailgating. We’ll get back our regular scheduled blog updates regarding tailgating in a few moments. But first I want to ask you if you are still getting your information from the web the old fashioned way? I mean, are you still bookmarking news sites and blogs and checking them on a regular basis? If you are still doing that you will thank me for writing this post.
DailyBlogTips.com recently started the initiative to raise awareness of RSS and they chose May 1st as RSS Awareness Day. They even created a website dedicated to RSS Awareness Day called rssday.org. The purpose is to get lots of people to discover how simple and convenient it is to gather information from the web via RSS.
I used to get my news and information from the web by bookmarking my favorite sites and checking them periodically. Not anymore. Not since I discovered RSS months ago. And because I feel it is such a valuable tool that is why I am deviating from writing about tailgating and singing the praises of RSS.
