What Is RSS?

RSS means Really Simple Syndication. That’s a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to JapanDave.com without having to check the site every day to see what’s new. New pages and updates to old ones are released through RSS.

How do I get started?

The easiest way is to go start using Feedly. It’s completely free to sign up. After you sign up, you can add any feeds you want and read them all there at Feedly.com.

Or if you’d rather have an app instead of being forced to visit a website, here are one or two options for each of the major computer systems:

Windows: QuiteRSS
Mac: Reeder
iOS: Reeder, Unread
Android: Feedly[1]

That’s It?

Yep. Easy, huh? Now you can subscribe to my RSS feed or any other sites all on the net.

One thing to keep in mind: Some sites don’t give you the entire post in their RSS feed. They do this so that you will visit their site directly[2]. This bothers some people. But no worries here: JapanDave provides full content feeds so you get everything in your RSS feed and don’t have to visit here at all (unless you want to).

  1. Note: I do not use Windows or Android, but took those apps from a google search for best windows RSS readers and best android RSS readers.  ↩

  2. Probably so they show you some ads and make money from you.  ↩
