Lots of buzz today about RSS (dying or not dying). If you’re not using it, can I strongly suggest you give it a try? I use Newsfire. Not sure the particular readers matters, though. Here’s what you need to know:

1. It’s not particularly difficult to keep up with 200 blogs you care about in less than hour using an RSS reader.

2. RSS provides home delivery. Instead of remembering where to click, or waiting for a post to get all buzzy and hot, the good stuff comes to you. Automatically and free.

3. Subscribing to a blog is easy. Just click here for my blog, for example. In Newsfire, you can paste the URL of any blog and it automatically finds the RSS feed for you.

RSS is quiet and fast and professional and largely hype-free. Perhaps that’s why it’s not the flavor of the day.
