OurZion Supports RSS

You may have noticed that little orange symbol up in the right corner of our OurZion banner.  That symbol represents that our website publishes an RSS feed.  RSS is an acronym that stands for “Really Simple Syndication”, and allows folks that are interested in posted messages on our website, to be notified of the content without having to visit the site directly.  Users can essentially subscribe to a website.

Do I Require Special Software?

Well, that depends. In most cases no. Many modern Mail programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird support RSS, and an RSS can be easily added to these email programs.  Also many Internet browsers also allow you to subscribe to an RSS feed.  If you have current versions of Internet Explorer or Firefox you’re all set. Alternately some people choose to use what is known as a newsreader or news aggregator to subscribe to RSS feeds.  The simplest one to get going is Google Reader.  The best part is that it is free. We like free.

Why Subscribe At All?

The main reason to subscribe to feeds is to save time. By adding subscriptions to sites with topics or blogs that you’re interested in one convenient location (if they support RSS), saves you the trouble of having to go to each site individually.  If you’re anything like me, I have quite a broad set of interests, so RSS works very well for me.

So, experiment a little – have fun!
