 You will notice that RSS feeds are available from this blog, You might be unaware of how useful RSS can be but instead of visiting this blog on a regular basis to look for updates you can get the updates sent to you and then read them in the Favourites section of your Internet Explorer toolbar or have them sent to a reader such as Google Reader. For a simple explanation of how this all works, visit the Commoncraft video on Youtube. This will help you manage and keep track of all your favourite blogs in one place.
