getting too much email? Here's an easy way to get instant
access to the Weekly Woodworking Tips as soon as they are published—without
using email. How? Use RSS!
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is one of the best kept secrets
on the internet. A terrific alternative to conventional email, RSS
gives you direct access to your favorite newsletters, blogs, weekly
tips (like our woodworking tips), and other web sites you might
normally subscribe to with an email address.
do I get started?
Your first step in using RSS is to download and install a "newsreader"
program from the Web (most are free). A simple internet search for
keywords "RSS newsreader" will give you a variety of newsreader
programs to choose from and information about how to use them. Or

setting up a free account with an online newsreader service, like
The online newsreader services use the same RSS technology as newsreaders
that run on your computer, bringing you notification of up-to-date
information from your favorite web sites and blogs.
Once your newsreader
software is installed (or you have set up an online newsreader account)
locate the place where you can add new RSS or XML "feeds"
to your list. Then copy and paste this URL for the Weekly Woodworking
Tips RSS feed:
That's all there is to it. As soon as we publish a new
Weekly Woodworking Tip, your RSS newsreader will notify you with
a direct link to the new woodworking tip.
