What is RSS?


What is RSS?  The orange RSS or XML buttons you see on websites are wonderful timesavers to:

Get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC....Get news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite band's tour updates, etc. and...and to receive new Masonic Education pages as they are placed onto this site.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

No more need for bookmarks!

No need to input your E-Mail address!

No spam!

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." In other words, your favorite site's updated pages of information come to you instead of your having to search for them each time.

Now, you can keep up with all the updates to Masonic-Lodge-of-Education without having to check the site every week to see "what's new." Whenever I put up a new page or update an old one, I release it through RSS. And...

I can share them with you from time to time through RSS. This saves you time and keeps you updated on our new Masonic education pages without you having to spend hours on the site.

RSS is amazing.

It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe, because, you, the site visitor, are in control. If you wish to remove this site from your feed, all you have to do is delete the feed. It's that easy!

And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favorite interests and news in the world.
