Technology Tips for Circus Artists – 1

In this series of posts I’m going to give tips on using technology to make your hours behind your desk that bit easier.

Tip Number one: Use RSS Feeds.

RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’, you will probably recognize the logo as it’s on most websites. Basically it’s a neat way of reading all of your favorite websites news from one convenient place. Meaning you don’t have to waste time checking each site individually. I’d recommend using the Google Reader as it’s simple and will work with 3rd party Apps on iPhone, iPad, Android phones etc.

You can learn more about RSS in general here and watch this video about Google Reader…

Once you’ve set up an account be sure to add our RSS feed to your list!

  1. Hey Arron,

    This advice is pretty good, but on the front page of the circus geeks website, this post is the only link to the RSS feed I could find! Normally with google reader I just copy and past the website or blog URL into the “add a feed” field, and google reader finds the appropriate RSS feed. But guess what? CircusGeeks.co.uk is the first time (in over a year) that this has failed.

    On THIS page, the one with the comments, there is an RSS link, but not the front page of the website.

  2. Hello Mr Burrage!

    Google Reader can’t find the RSS because circusgeeks.co.uk is a forwarder to https://circusgeeks.wordpress.com/ so try that, although I will have a little tinker under the bonnet and see if I can fix that.

    I believe there is an RSS feed link at the bottom of the homepage, maybe I will move it to somewhere more obvious.

    Thanks for the feed back, happy travels!

    Arron
