Blogging – What is Syndication?

So I spent some time reading up on “Syndication” and how it applies to the BLOGGING world and this is what I learned.
Question: What’s an RSS feed?
Answer: RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. RSS, a derivative of XML, was designed to support the needs of syndication.
Question: What do I use to read RSS feeds?
Answer: I just started to scratch the surface of this question, I don’t actually have a RSS reader yet. Here’s a list of popular RSS readers that I found.
I came across a news reader called FeedDemon, published by Bradbury Software, that looks promising. If it’s anything like Bradbury’s other product, TopStyle (a CSS, XHTML, HTML editor), it should be functional and well designed. I downloaded a pre-release copy today so I’ll have something to say about it in the near future.
So syndicate my site!
