I love RSS, the open source ‘following’ technology called “Really Simple Syndication.” Let’s be honest – It’s probably dying in most circles. This blog is “old” though – having been originally started in 2007 – and I appreciate old technology that still gets the job done just fine! So if you are an RSS feed user, you probably already know all this, but perhaps you’re thinking “what the Sam Hill is RSS, and why would I want to use it?” – well, this page can summarize better than I can!

Needless to say, my favorite RSS reader is my email client, Thunderbird. Here’s how you can add an RSS feed to it.

And here’s how you can do it in Outlook (in Outlook 365, look for a folder named “RSS Subscriptions” and right click it to see the “Add a New RSS Feed” item).

And the most important part – my RSS feed – it’s super easy. With great trumpet fanfare:

Otherwise, to subscribe via WordPress’s common email alert system so you get a notification whenever I write a new post (sigh, I don’t like this modern way but I know I’m probably in the minority), you can use this box here:
