Syndicating Your Blog with RSS

RSS, also known as Real Simple Syndication, Rich Site Summary, or RDF Site Syntax is a lightweight XML format designed specifically for syndicating web content. Building your own RSS files requires some fairly heavy experience, but thankfully this process also can be automated by some blog providers.

Originally developed by Netscape, RSS has become a popular way to share content between web sites as well as blogs. RSS is a great syndication tool because not only can the big destination sites like BBC, CNET, CNN, Disney, Forbes, Motley Fool, Wired, Red Herring, Salon, Slashdot, and ZDNet use it for their content distribution services, but the blogging community also can make use of it to promote their work.
