What to be happy about:
RSS Feed Aggregators
For those of you that don’t know what a rss feed aggregator is, according to wikipedia it is:
“client software or a Web application which aggregates syndicated web content such as news headlines, blogs, podcasts, and vlogs in a single location for easy viewing.” In laymans terms it collects posts by blogs, email, news agencies and podcasts and sets it up for quick viewing – very similar to an email inbox.

From Mr. Meo:
“Hey buddy. Great to hear from you!!!!!! thanks also for the kind words about the class. I have fun with web design and enjoy passing along my humble knowledge with students like yourself.

Here is what I would recommend:

I would go straight to a browser based blogging tool like WordPress (wordpress.com). Remember, you still need a host and a URL/domain name. You might want to check out http://www.opensourcecms.com/ and click on the “Blogs” menu from the tree on the left. You can test out most of these OS CMS (Content management systems) in a demo mode before you dive in to loading one to your server? Great site.

Next, Download a free copy of the Mozila Firefox browser if you do not already have one. Next get a URL and Hosting account if you don’t already have one? (Godaddy.com is cheap. Plus if you have a hosting account with them they have WordPress and other Popular blogging tools available to load. Download Worpress to your hosting server and away you go. Dreamweaver and other PC based WYSIWYG programs might be a bit more cumbersome for a blogging.(And costly. Are you on a Raman Noodle diet yet?) I think you will love WordPress! It will be easier to maintain a fully functioning Blog and plus there is a huge Open Source Army that uses and supports WordPress. It is VERY easy to find Word Press themes, plug-Ins, and add-ons that will allow you to create the “bells and Whistles” you are looking for.

Let me know how you make out buddy. Go git em!!!!!!!”
