How To: Subscribe to Your Favorite Websites

To stay informed takes a LOT of time. Reading, watching, and listening to news, scanning blogs, being aware of pop culture ... we know how important it is to be "in the know," but finding the time to fit it into our schedule - that's something else altogether. Luckily, technology has a solution: RSS aggregators.

Aggregators bring all the news that's important to you TO YOU. No more visiting 10, 20, 30 sites a day. See everything new, at once, in one place. Worried about finding the key items? Almost all aggregators have filters.

But wait, what's RSS? This video, courtesy of Common Craft, shows you what RSS is, how it works, and how to get started.

Let us know if you have any questions and remember to subscribe to New Voices!

This is Part 1 in the New Voices series on helpful technology for science communicators and advocates.
