co RSS for The Rest of Us |

Did you know that you can easily post an RSS feed from your favorite bloggers to your “My Yahoo” or “My Google” (or “My AOL”) Page just like you can add other news sources like the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times?

You can! And it’s easy, as long as your favorite blogger is offering RSS Syndication on their blog.

All you need to do is to visit your favorite blog, and click on their RSS feed icon. Sometimes referred to as “chicklets” these may say “add to myYahoo”, etc. – in which case it is very simple: all you have to do is click on the chicklet appropriate for your page and you will have that blog feed streaming to the page just like all your other news sites.

If all you see on your favorite blog is a small orange (or other color) button with some lines that look like transmission signals, then click on that, and you’ll be given the address of that blog’s RSS feed.

Copy this address, and then go into your “myYahoo” page (or whichever service you prefer), choose the option to add content, and then select “add URL for RSS feed.” Paste the RSS feed address that you copied from the blog link, and you have now added streaming content from that blog to your favorite page.

Try it – it’s really convenient to have your favorite blogs appear right on your favorite page, along with all your other valued news sources.
