How to get Spiritual Minute RSS feeds
1. Get an RSS reader.
You can use a feed reader built into a browser or e-mail program; download and install software on your computer; or use a Web-based feed reader (see Where can I get an RSS reader, below).
2. Opt in to content areas of interest.
Click on any of the checkboxes in the column at left to add content to your Spiritual Minute feed. Once you’ve made your choices, click “Create Custom Feed.” On the next page, just click the name of your feed reader if it’s listed in the “Subscribe Now” box. If it’s not, copy the URL from that box into your feed reader, following the instructions provided with the program.
3. Read the latest from SpirtiuatlMinute.org
Your RSS reader will periodically retrieve the latest additions to any of the feeds you’ve chosen. If you’re using a feed reader built into a browser or other desktop application, updates will most likely appear automatically. For Web-based feed readers, you’ll need to visit the service’s site to get your updates.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is RSS Feed?
Given the vast number of Web pages and content providers on the Internet, RSS technology allows you to identify the content that interests you most and have it delivered directly to your desktop. Thousands of sites have developed feeds and you can view them all, regardless of source, using any feed reader. The most popular and descriptive definition of RSS is “Really Simple Syndication.” You can think of a Web site’s feed as a text broadcast of the site’s content. Once you subscribe to a feed, you’ll always have the latest headlines because your RSS reader periodically retrieves the most recent feed additions.
