RSS is web technology that allows you to feed information from a site or weblog to subscribers. This means if you’re following Joe’s weblog and want to know about his latest posts without having to continually check his blog, you can become a subscriber and be automatically notified when Joe posts new material. For websites this means being able to import content into your pages from other sites.
Using RSS, GraceNotes currently provides 6 feeds (including 2 Spanish and 1 French) that are of a devotional nature. Each feed publishes new content two times a week. This free service is produced by the Center for Creative Ministry for the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.
In order to access the information RSS is sending you need an RSS Reader that is either web-based, or on your desktop. Click here for an example of one that is free. Do a search on Google and you'll find many more.
The evolution of web technologies continues to introduce new applications and opportunities for publishing content. RSS makes automated text broadcasting a reality for websites that are challenged by budget and personnel restrictions. For free, or for minimal costs, organizations can subscribe to services that automatically refresh their web pages.
