What Is RSS To You?

I’m working on a “What Is RSS?” page for a Web site that’s introducing RSS feeds shortly.

Here’s an excerpt:

Why should I use a news reader?

A news reader helps you get more of what you want. As you start to gather a variety of RSS feeds from your favorite information sources in one place, you no longer need to visit each and every one of your favorite Web sites. Instead, they come to you.

From your desktop or Web browser, you can view headlines and articles from as many sources as you like, all on one page. This saves time, and allows you to easily scan the news for what you care about. New items are delivered to your personalized news page, and deleted after you read them. You only read what’s news to you.

Check it out, and feel free to comment. Point me to your favorite “What Is RSS?” pages, too!
