Staying Abreast of New Content on GSGC Blogs

Do you have difficulty staying abreast of “GSGC Tips and Treasures” and “GSGC Blog” updates? Could you use some help?

Subscribe to a RSS Feed. RSS Feeds allow you to stay informed by retrieving the latest content from certain websites in which you have an interest. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. RSS Feed capability is identified by display of the following orange and white icon:

The manner in which information is communicated by the RSS Feed can vary depending upon how the connection is made. Connections can be made through many web browsers (such as Internet Explorer and Firefox) and web-based feed readers (such as My Yahoo and Google Reader). You might want to try more than one connection in order to get one that is most useful to you.

If you use Internet Explorer 7 or 8 as your web browser, the following procedure can be used to make the RSS Feed connections for GSGC blogs.

Go to club blog websites:

GSGC Tips and Treasures http://gsgc-tandt.blogspot.com


GSGC Blog http://gsgc-blog.blogspot.com

The Blog will open.

Click on the orange and white RSS Feed icon on the menu bar at the top of your browser window. The RSS Feed window will open.

Click on “
Subscribe to this feed.” A small window will open.

Click the “
Subscribe” button. Another window will open that says “You’ve successfully subscribed to this feed!

You can verify which feed you subscribed to by clicking the “
View my feeds” link included in the open window.

Once you have subscribed to a feed, your internet browser will gather new information from the BLOG on a regular basis.
To find out what’s new:
  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Click on the Favorites icon on the toolbar (There will be three tabs: Favorites, Feeds, and History.)
  • Click on the Feeds Tab (This will show you a list of the feeds to which you have subscribed.)
  • Click on one of them, e.g.: GSGC Tips and Treasures (A browser window will open with a list of the postings.)
You can determine how often your computer checks for updated BLOG information by using the “View feed properties...” link on the right side of the opened feeds window. These properties allow you to set a schedule for checking for information as well as deleting the information from your computer.
