Waldo’s Web uses RSS feeds to publish blog articles and website activity updates.
Really Simple Syndication, or RSS, is a web feed that allows users and applications to access updates to the website in a standardized, computer-readable format. RSS feeds allow you to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator, called an RSS reader. The RSS reader will automatically check the RSS feed for new content, allowing the list to be automatically passed from website to website or from website to user. This passing of content is called web syndication.
Subscribing to Waldo’s Web removes the need for you to manually check the website for new content. Instead, your RSS reader constantly monitors the site and informs you of any blog posts or updates.
