What are the two biggest problems facing email users today? Ironically they are:
#2) spam filters
Unsolicited email is flooding our in-boxes. Unfortunately while trying to fix the problem, spam filters are blocking mail we want to receive, even, perhaps (gasp!) our free weekly Surfnetkids newsletter. It’s a classic case of throwing the baby out with the bath water.
So what’s an email user or publisher to do? Rescue the baby, of course! To this end, many (including Surfnetkids) are turning to a new delivery system: RSS. The Surfnetkids newsletter is now available in three formats: HTML email, text email or RSS.
For those already familiar with RSS (which stands for a number of different things depending on who you ask) I’ll cut to the chase, and give you the URL:
Free Weekly Surfnetkids Newsletter (via RSS)
Please note that this is a full-content feed, not just a list of headlines and links. If weekly topic headlines are more to your liking, try this instead:
Surfing the Net with Kids Headlines (via RSS)
For details, including an answer to the question “What is RSS?”, a short list of recommended RSS news readers and a handful of noteworthy news feeds, read the announcement sent to my Surfnetkids list.
