RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication.  Content from Web Sites published are pushed as “feeds”. You don’t have to check multiple Web Sites each day.  Instead, subscribe to the “feeds”.  This is an effective tool for keeping up on news and trends.  (Thanks again Helenefor a great definition).

In computing, a feed aggregator, also known as a feed reader, news reader or simply aggregator, is client software or a Web application which aggregates syndicated web content such as news headlines, blogs, podcasts, and vlogs in a single location for easy viewing.  (Thanks to Wikipedia for this definition).

We will be using Bloglines.  Keep in mind there are many RSS Aggregators/Newsreaders out there.
