If you would like to know about my latest artwork before many others do, subscribe to my RSS feed (RSS=Really Simple Syndication). To subscribe to my RSS feed, locate the RSS orange icon (with the word "Feed" next to it) on my "Portfolio of Works" page on my web site. This allows site visitors who use RSS to "subscribe" to my works portfolio with a few clicks. Why would someone do that? Because it will allow the visitor to monitor when I post new artwork without having to manually check my site every day. When you subscribe to a feed, it is added to a common feed list. Updated information from the feed is automatically downloaded to your computer and can be viewed in Internet Explorer and other programs.
RSS readers are the programs used to view the latest paintings on web sites to which you have subscribed. In other words, it is a way to accumulate all your RSS feeds from various websites, like all your favorite artists, into one handy interface. For example, Google reader is free and you do not have to download a program. To be able to use Google reader, you will need a Google account. It is easy to set up; you just answer a few questions to have your account. Once you have signed in, you can access all the other Google services.
