I can send you an email every time I publish something new or you can follow me on social media or add my RSS feed to your news app.

What’s an RSS feed?

You probably know that websites use w3’s HTML guidelines to define how their website is displayed in browsers, but do you know that most websites also serve an RSS (really simple syndication) formatted copy of their content that lets users subscribe to a website?

It’s a shame that most browsers can only understand HTML, but not RSS, even though both are widely used open standards. Anyway, you can still subscribe to a website via their RSS feed by adding it to your RSS reader/News reader app. Once added, the app will periodically scan RSS feeds and notify you when a wesbite publishes new content.

RSS feeds + RSS reader allows users to subscribe to multiple websites without disclosing an email address or a phone number. Some RSS reader apps support syncing your subscriptions to the cloud for a truly cross-platform experience.
