Thanks to Steve Rubel at Micro Persuasion, today is RSS Appreciation Day.

I am going to do my part and help you implement RSS feeds into Goowy, an on-line desktop. Why an on-line desktop and not a reader? I believe in the near future, on-line desktops will be the beginning and end to an Internet users day, making it a natural home for RSS feeds.

Step 1: Create an Account

  • Visit http://www.goowy.com
  • Use the "Sign up now!" table on the right-hand side of the page to create an account
  • If all of the information you have entered is correct, you will be placed in your "Goowy Desktop" page:

Goowy Desktop

Step 2: Implement RSS Feeds

  • Click on the "View Minis" link
  • You should now be in your "Goowy Minis" page:

Goowy Minis Page

  • Click on the "Manage Minis" tab
  • Move your cursor down the list and click on the "Add Feed" link
  • A window will pop-up, enter "cobundle" for the title
  • Enter https://cobundle.wordpress.com/feed/ as the feed
  • Click the "Save" link

You are done!

Please spread the word, RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." It really isn't that complicated. 🙂
