Miami RSS - Tracking made easy with Bloglines

Okay, so i'm fairly new to blogging, but i’ve become increasingly aware that many people don't know much about RSS - This short summary is intended to get you up to speed just a few minutes.

What you will learn
This post is intended to get you to the point where reading and using RSS is simple. Including subscribing to RSS feeds and using the most popular web based Feed Reader: Bloglines.

There are many other ways to subscribe to RSS feeds. There are other good aggregators out there including My.Yahoo and the Sage plugin for Firefox - The point here though is to get you up to speed in the fastest time possible - one of the neat features of Bloglines is you can clip your news of interest and come back to it at a later date.

Open an Account at Bloglines
First, get a bloglines account - just follow the instructions, it's very simple and should only take a minute.

Start out with some good Miami travel Feeds
Below is a list of some of the better Florida related blogs and travel news resources - the links will automatically take you to your bloglines account and prompt you to subscribe to the feed. Give it a try, you should find the interface very self explanatory...

Checking Your Feeds & Subscribing to More
Bloglines updates once an hour, so all you need to do now is bookmark your feeds page and check it a few times a day to keep up with the feeds you've subscribed to.

To subscribe to other sites you'll need to first check that they actually have a feed. Usually you'll see an orange XML button, or a specific bloglines subscribe button somewhere in the navigation. You can see MiamiBeach411’s just to the right at the top of the page. If there is a specific Bloglines one, then just click it, if not, grab the url of the XML link and then go to your bloglines account. On the left panel, you'll see a link to "add" – just click it and paste the XML URL into the form and your done.
It's just that easy.
