My Yahoo


Do you Yahoo? I do. My home page is a "My Yahoo" page. And the Cooking with Amy email is a Yahoo address. Now Yahoo is offering RSS headlines for My Yahoo.

Without getting too techy, RSS is a format for syndication, but it lacks a simple way for ordinary folk to use it. The current "XML" and "RSS" buttons may make sense to tech-savvy visitors, but can be confusing to everyone else. All you really need to know is that if you would like to see headlines from this blog as content on your "My Yahoo" page, click on the "Add to myYahoo!" button on the left hand navigation under the heading of Syndication. Since February, Yahoo has been testing support for syndication formats like RSS and Atom, so give it a try, and see if you like it.
