Why use it?

RSS makes it easier to keep up with multiple web sites without manually visiting each site. By using software such as Google Reader, you can add multiple blogs to your feed reader and read all of them from there! Below is a screen shot of my Google Reader with multiple blogs listed on the lower left corner.
