Another way to track MPR News stories
Posted at 10:08 AM on January 25, 2007 by Bill Wareham (0 Comments)
Starting today, MPR's online audience members can subscribe to stories by any MPR reporter/author through individual RSS feeds.
On each individual archive page, you'll see an RSS link and icon next to the page title. You can access the feed by clicking on the link.
If you're not familiar with RSS feeds, and many people aren't, they're links you can embed in various browsers and other software that make it very easy to track updates to your favorite Web sites. Some browsers allow you to access these feeds like bookmarks; other sites like Google and Yahoo allow you to place these feeds on your customized homepage. (For instance - hint, hint - you can get an update whenever there's a new item on The News Grid instead of checking the site every five minutes to see whether we've posted another dollop of wit and/or wisdom.)
RSS feeds fall into that category of things that seem exceedingly simple once you get over the initial hump of understanding. Click here for a list of Minnesota Public Radio RSS feeds and some information on how to use them.
