Whenever you see the , or button on a webpage, it should link to an RSS feed URL
that you can subscribe to via your news reader or web browser.
The basic procedure is as follows:

for journalists, writers, and individuals who want to
share thoughts with other people on the Internet. Popular
blog service providers include Blogger, Blog.com, LiveJournal, TypePad and Bloglines.
