What's an RSS feed?

You might know that all websites on the internet use the HTML format to define how content in displayed in browsers, but you might not know that most of those websites also include an RSS (really simple syndication) formatted copy of their content that lets people can subscribe to their website.

It's a shame that most browsers can only understand HTML and not RSS even thought both are open standards. Anyway, you can still subscribe to websites via RSS feed using an RSS reader app. RSS reader apps scan RSS feeds of the websites that you add to your list and notify you when a website publishes new content.

All in all, RSS feeds and RSS reader apps empower you to subscribe to multiple websites and sources without disclosing your personal data (like email address or phone number). You can even follow social media accounts or YouTube channels using RSS feeds. Some RSS reader apps can sync your subscriptions to the cloud and allow you to access your subscriptions from multiple devices.

Here are some RSS reader apps that recommend -
Feeder for Android users.
NetNewsWire for Apple users.
Fluent Reader for desktop users.

You can sync your subscribtions by a self-hosting an RSS server like Miniflux, or by paying an hosted service like Feedbin. Btw, there are some non-profit tech organizations that host RSS servers for free. Feel free to ping me if you need help choosing one.


I'm still unsure about starting a mailing list.
