Food Storage Made Easy and RSS Feeds

rss-bigIf you are familiar with “blogging” and/or follow a lot of blogs, you probably already have a system in place to stay up to date on all your favorite blogs. However, if you are a blog newbie or only follow one or two blogs, you may just bookmark the sites and try to remember to check back to see if anything new has been posted.

We actually started our blog before we really knew what the whole blogging world was all about, so we didn’t discover the beauty of RSS feeds for quite some time. We thought we would share with you a quick lesson on RSS feeds and how to use them so that you don’t have to go through the hassle of manually checking in to see if we have posted anything new.

We asked our tech-savvy cousin Sam to help explain what RSS is and how to use it in a quick tutorial video. You may be seeing more of Sam in the future as we will be picking his brain for a future series on doing “Food Storage on a Budget”. His personal finance blog is a great resource for helping you get your finances in order.

  • I was trying to make another comment on the YouTube channel but it gave me an error so I’ll make it here.

    For following your facebook and twitter accounts, I would recommend using TweetDeck instead of RSS. It’s a free program that makes it easy to organize and manage your facebook and twitter updates from friends.

    You can find it at http://www.tweetdeck.com.

    Maybe I’ll have to do another screencast showing how to use it.

  • I’m looking forward to helping your readers build up their food storage on a budget. I also hope this screencast helps a few people discover the awesomeness of RSS. I wouldn’t be able to live without it.
