What is RSS? February 3, 2006

“RSS” stands for Really Simple Syndication, Rich Site Summary, and/or Rockdale, Sandow, and Southern (Railroad) (if you trust the good folks at AcronymFinder.com). Really Simple Syndication is probably the most widely agreed-upon choice. As far as we are concerned, all three acronyms do an inadequate job of describing what RSS actually is: RSS is a standard for publishing regular updates to web-based content. Using this standard, Web publishers provide updates, such as the latest news headlines or weblog postings. Meanwhile, consumers use RSS reader applications (or one of a growing number of online services) to collect and monitor their favorite feeds in one place (RSS content from a publisher, viewed in one of these readers, is often called a “feed”).

what’s a blog??!? January 3, 2006

a blog is a website that serves as an online journal for an individual or group of contributors. topics for a blog could be almost anything… personal information, politics, business or marketing information, etc.

blog “entries” are “posted” to a blog and could include the author’s commentaries, news, images, or links to other information.
the term “blog” originally comes from weB LOG. someone who maintains one of these sites is referred to as a “blogger” and the act of maintaining a site is called “blogging.”
