We now have RSS feeds!
What is an RSS feed?
RSS stands for Really Simply Syndication. It is a way for you to have certain information populated on multiple websites at the
same time. For example Google News uses RSS from news websites to populate their news pages.
How do I use RSS?
There are some websites such as the following:
The Blogging Alliance of Non-Partisan Canadians
All these websites use RSS feeds to populate their website. So if you have a blog and you are fairly right wing you may wish to join Blogging Tories
and when you do you tell them your RSS address and then when you make a new blog entry that entry will appear here on our website and in your blog, but
it will also appear on the Blogging Tories website.
What is my RSS address?
Your RSS address depends on your login name. For example if your login name is Peter then your RSS address is
http://www.peterspolitics.com/blogs/peter.xml just change peter with your login name. If your login name is Liberal65 then your RSS
address is http://www.peterspolitics.com/blogs/liberal65.xml
There is also a brief RSS feed which truncates your feed. the address for the brief RSS feed is
http://www.peterspolitics.com/blogs/peter-brief.xml or http://www.peterspolitics.com/blogs/liberal65-brief.xml depending on what your username is.
You will have to create a blog entry before your RSS feed is activated. To create a blog just go to the blog section of the website (be sure you are
logged in first) and at the top of the page there will be a link to create a new blog.
You do not need to use RSS feeds if you do not wish. Some people like them because their comments end up being read by hundreds of other people with
similar interests. If you still have questions on RSS feeds please use the contact form to ask me a question.
