What RSS is and how it will make your life so much easier

Despite the fact that RSS technology has been around for many years, most of my acquaintances still don’t know how to use it. If you spend a lot of time online, using RSS technology will simplify your life and save your tons of time.

Below if the first video in a series of videos I’ll be posting in the next day or two that describes in detail how RSS works and how to benefit from it. This first video goes through an example of how RSS works and the benefit you’ll receive by taking advantage of the technology.

What does this have to do with personal finances you ask? Well all these video tutorials will ultimately lead up to a video showing how to find the greatest deals imaginable online via RSS. In fact, you will literally be able to tell RSS exactly what items you’re looking for and you’ll receive an immediate update when that item goes on sale. You can also receive instant notifications when someone posts an item for sale on sites like craigslist. I’ve purchased many items and saved hundreds of dollars using this technique so you won’t want to miss it.

If you already use RSS, you may want to skip the initial videos. But who knows, maybe you’ll pick up some additional tips you didn’t know about.

This is the first attempt at at video on GFD so please leave your feedback in the comments below.

    Quick question – how do you only show the icons of the websites you’re visiting in Firefox? Nifty little add-on…

  2. Sam Says:

    Dan, I use the AddOn called FaviconizeTab. I love it. You can right click on any tab to show only the favicon. You can also go into the add on settings and enter wildcards for the sites you want to automatically shorten (e.g. *yahoo*). Thanks for visiting.
