I'm sure it's not true. For some this post will seem like I'm trying to teach nursery rhymes to Shakespeare. Most web surfers probably have no clue what a feed is, let alone read it. I didn't know how to until this year. I used to think feeds meant Html-like codes tech savvy people read - much like when you clicked 'view page source,' - won't lie to you. And even after I'd realized the benefits (#1 being a huge time saver; HUGE) of reading feeds, which is simply reading/viewing blog or site content without ever having to visit that site (unless sites have restrictions), I didn't read them on a dedicated Feed Reader. Yes I read about the hundreds and hundreds of desktop and web-based readers but non did it for me. Until I switched to Google Reader. If you haven't already, in which case this post means shit to you, subscribe to your favorite sites' feeds and read it on your Reader of choice. It will change the way you'll keep yourself informed. It's very easy to set-up and there's no one way to read. You don't have to use Google Reader; I just like it because I can't do without it. :) Some blogs I read regularly have changed their designs a couple of times and I had no clue. I personally don't care if someone never visited my site but read it on his/her reader. (S)he is reading it, that matters.
It's a free world, and you should know what else is out there.
