Changing the appearance of this Blog and RSS feeds

I have changed the appearance of this blog, as the previous default didn’t have an RSS link attached to it (which I thought was a bit odd, I had assumed that, RSS was a standard feature of a blog, so hadn’t noticed it that it wasn’t there).

The beauty of RSS is that rather than someone having to actively keep looking at this blog to see if I have posted anything, you look at the blog once, decide that it is worth following and then subscribe to it by clicking on the RSS link. This gives a web address (in this case https://davefoord.wordpress.com/feed/ ) – you then paste this into an RSS reader, of which there are many options, Firefox has one built in, Internet Explorer 7 , I believe has one built in, or you could use Jaiku, facebook or bloglines….. What happens then is the reader checks all the blogs and sites for you, and ‘aggregates’ any changes onto 1 easier to manage place – you then scroll down your list, if anything catches your eye, then click on the link and you get to see the full article.
